Star Wars Saga encouraged Junior
The evil Darth Vadcr's destroyer overtook Princess Leia's blockade runner. As he entered. Darth took the princess captive. Leia sent a message with R2D2 to Obi Wan Kcnobi on Tatoone. which asked for him to rescue her from evil hands.
Not long afterwards, the names Darth Vadcr and Princess Leia became household words. Little brothers and sisters owned Darth Vadcr dolls and Princess Leia sleeping bags and Halloween night produced an ocean of pint sized Darth Vadcrs and Princess Leias. Needless to say. the movie was a million dollar seller.
Over half of the Rock Island High School student body observed this congla-moration of both visual effects, which took
years to perfect and months to tape, at least once. They simply amused, enlightened, but one. Steve Bailey was encouraged.
As Steve watched, the special effects came to life and flowed together as if it were merely his imagination.
At the time Steve was not a stranger to the dark room. Photography was his "second language.” During his sophomore year Steve made a film relating to the mythology unit his class was engaged in and allowed them to share in his creation.
Steve's interests increased and so his equipment needs also conformed. He made films for three years, and had built his hobby from camera to synthesizer. The films have only been 5-10 minutes, mainly because the price (12 dollars for about 5 minutes of film including the sound that Steve mixed himself)- l|l

Gold discovered in Shawn Mlekush
"He is a pro" stated Charles Sanders, entertainment editor for the Quad-City Argus. As he starred in Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse's production of "On Golden Pond”, Shawn Mlekush appeared professional. Shawn played Billy, the youth who brought sunshine to Golden Pond during that special summer in Maine. Along with a couple of Circa's favorite actors. Pat Jeffery as Ethel and Jim Miller as Norman, they brought tears, giggles, and joy into the audience's heart.
During his freshman year, Shawn got stuck in acting class instead of woodshop. After he fought to get out of acting. Mr. Marshall assured Shawn he'd like it. This was Shawn’s beginning and became his first love. Appearing in a short dialogue called "If Thoughts Could Speak” in 9th grade, Shawn's talent blossomed. Two days before the program. Shawn was asked to be the Master of Ceremony for the 9th grade talent show. Making up his jokes while he went along. Shawn's punch lines were totally off the wall.
Yet his freshman year did not seem enough. Shawn appeared in all the school productions last year. From the reporter in
"The Solid Gold Cadilac" to Eugene Gant in ''Look Homeward Angel" to singing in the "Music Man's” quartet, Shawn's talent gleemcd through. Still, this did not equal what Shawn wanted. Creating an "off the wall" comedy act. he made the audience cry with pain in the Drama club’s annual talent show. After this craiy presentation, Mrs. Gcndc handed Shawn an opportunity he just couldn't have refused.
Under Mrs. Gende's recommendation. Shawn tried out at Circa ‘21, received the part, and became a "pro". Having been his first professional part, Shawn did not blink an eye in nervousness. Having appeared in many other school productions. Shawn's talent went growing and glowing. Whether a reporter, teenager. Master of Ceremony, or comedian. Shawn played the part with extreme skill. Acting came from the Arts, while Shawn came from the administration's goof.
Gise me a break! Placing a special much and lickle 10 Norman Thayers (Jim Miller). Billy. Rocky’s own Shawn Mlekush. brings meaning 10 life for eseryone on Golden Pond in Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse's production of "On Golden Pond".
