Fully staged, “A Little Night Music” is directed by Scott Wise and accompanied by the SummerFest Orchestra, conducted by Walter Morales. SummerFest presents this Sondheim treasure Sun., July 7 at 2:30 pm at the Twentieth Century Club, 4210 Bigelow Blvd., in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Oakland (15213).

Zimbabwe intends to seek the extradition of American dentist Dr. Walter J Palmer who killed Cecil the lion after luring the lion out of a national park and shooting him with a bow and a gun. The doctor violated the Parks and Wildlife Act Which controls the use of bow and arrow hunting. Palmer released a statement early last week stating he relied on his guides to ensure the hunt was legal. There is an extradition treaty between Zimbabwe and the United States.
