At 82, life is still a stage

By Heidi Bitsoli

A feature story chronicles the busy life of 82-year-old Wayne State University student Lois Bendler. She’s active in the theater community — most recently designing the set for the Grosse Pointe Theatre’s upcoming production of “Hairspray” — but she’s also attending WSU full time for a degree in set design, teaching piano and directing the Pointe Players at Grosse Pointe South High School. “I like a challenge,” she said. “I like to grow. The world is such a huge place with so much (to discover). I’m consumed by curiosity.”

The Ugly Duckling at WSU Hilberry Theatre in Detroit

By Dolly Moiseff

Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling has been popular for more than 150 years – and that’s why Wayne State University’s Hilberry Theatre is picking a musical version – featuring “Udrich,” an unquestionably “ugly” duck –for its annual summer kids show, which will be running on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from June 19 to July 7, 2012.
