Ear: Shanghai

Since this involves quite a few Astorians, here’s a shout-out from Judith Niland: “Hey Shanghaians!” she wrote. “We are seeking all show alumni to come join us in the Astoria Grand Land Regatta Parade Saturday, Aug. 10, to celebrate “Shanghaied in Astoria” turning 35, and to honor the creator of the longest running all-volunteer cast musical melodrama, Dr. Del Corbett!”

“Over 1,000 volunteers have participated through the years, creating memories that have lasted a lifetime,” she explained. “Come represent your year, and join us as we walk and ride in downtown Astoria on Aug 10.”

Want to participate? Contact Judith at jniland@pacifier.com or info@asocplay.com

If you need any further convincing, “we can provide costumes,” she noted. “You just gotta come. Spread the word. It will be spectacular!”
