If you were wondering, well, so was I: how is it that Elie Wiesel, the renowned Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Holocaust survivor and author, came to be an annual fixture on the campus at Orange County's Chapman University, founded as a Protestant institution of the Disciples of Christ?

The cast's fine ensemble work is in keeping with the original Group Theatre concept that nurtured Odets' writing.

If a crisis exists in the Roman Catholic Church, you wouldn't know it at Sacred Heart, a sturdy red-brick edifice three blocks off Main Street. The cavernous sanctuary is filled with worshipers on weekends, the parish fish fry was a smashing success, and so many youngsters have signed up to be altar servers that some have to wait three months.
