Just as the players want to fill the theatre, they want to fill the lobby with donations for the Milford Community Pantry. The Saturday, Dec. 7 perform- ance is sold out but some tickets remain for the Friday evening show and the Sunday matinee. However, the group feels that there is room to spare under the lighted tree in the lobby. "We are slowly surrounding the tree with canned goods and other nonperishable foods," said Robin Twilley, president of the board of directors.

Biggs Museum executive direc- tor Karol Schmiegel notes the considerable contributions of the talogue. "Some fifty scholars, historians, writers and curators tender an innovative look at American art, especially that of the Delaware Valley region," he said. "In addition, they have com- piled a remarkable survey of 125 years of outstanding art in the state0f Delaware." Noted art historian William Gerdt's introductory essay on painting and sculpture notes how the collection trac, esAmerican portraiture's colonial roots through impressionism's rise in the 20th century.

Twilley said that the holiday decorated lobby and the humor- ous and touching Dickens' story of Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and a host of ghosts is sure to put everyone in a holiday mood. The 38 cast members of the mu- sical production represent several communities from central to southern Delaware and even Sal- isbury, Md. Lewes residents join those from Dover, Bayard, Milford, Camden and Houston. Costumes range from traditional turn-of-the-17th- other area museum, this collection tracks major movements in Amer- ican art and substantiates the con- tributions of Delaware artists to the national art scene. The book also presents exciting new infor- mation about the multitalented Philadelphia-based Peale dynasty of painters, for example. Paintings created by members of this illus- trious family were a particular fo- cus for the museum's founder." The Biggs collection of 19th century landscapes spans the dra- matic representational work of such luminaries as Albert Bier- stadt to later lyrical scenes created in a soft generalized manner by George Inness. If readers have not seen the collection they will be delighted at its breadth and depth." Philip D. Zirnmerman,-nati'onal- ly recognized on American an- tique furniture, describes the Big- gs furniture collection as " est resource for the study and ap- preciation of Delaware furniture available." His insights reveal what is unique to work such as the dis- tinctive clock case designs of the Janvier cabinetmaking family of Odessa. He explores what early Delaware furniture elusive ac- knowledging the vision and sharp century English to stylized ghosts and phantoms, some looming larger that mere mortal life.
