STUDIO VII THEATRE CO.

A FOX ON THE FAIRWAY

Show dates are January 16 th , 24 th , 25 th , 30 th and 31 st at 7 PM and on the

January 18 th at 2 PM. A tribute from Ken Ludwig to the great English farces

of the 1930s and 1940s, A Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious

romp, which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a

private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors and

over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it’s a furiously paced comedy that

recalls the Marx Brothers’ classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about

love, life and man’s eternal love affair with...golf.

“I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE!”

Show dates are January 17 th , 18 th and 23 rd at 7 PM and on the January 25 th

at 2 PM. This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths

behind that contemporary conundrum known as ‘the relationship.’ Act I

explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while

Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the

family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue

pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on

their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, ‘Say,

what are you doing Saturday night?’ Suitable for audiences ages 13+.

Both held in the intimate Black Box Theatre. Tickets: www.studiovii.org/tickets

Spaghetti Squash

You could make this on National Spaghetti Day January

4th! Everyone is trying to be a little healthier these days,

so instead of a pasta spaghetti, try using spaghetti

squash:

DIRECTIONS:

1. To start, cut your squash in half lengthwise. This is

definitely the hardest part of making spaghetti squash,

but with a sharp chef’s knife and some determination

you’ll do just fine.

2. Remove the seeds. Drizzle the cut sides with olive oil

and season with salt and pepper. Flip the squash cut-side

down on a baking sheet.

3. Pop it in a 400°F oven for 40 minutes. Depending on

the size of your squash, this could take more like an

hour. If 40 minutes have passed and you’re not sure if the

squash is ready, pull it out of the oven and drag the tines

of a fork on the cut side. If spaghetti-like strands easily

release from the skin, it’s ready. If not, continue baking

and check on it every 5 to 10 minutes. Over-roasting can

lead to soggier “spaghetti,” so it’s best to keep a close eye

on the squash.

4. Shred it! When it’s ready, let cool slightly before creating

“spaghetti” with your fork.

Top with spaghetti sauce or for an even healthier and

lower calorie option, go with a marinara sauce.

Tips

!

Gardening

Happy New Y ear fro m

• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of

water than from lack of food.

• Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering.

• Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms.

• Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and

old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into

heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate

and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before

planting.

• Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete

fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six

inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal.

Water in.

• Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze

damage to crown.

• House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off

leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce

water for poinsettias.

• Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture.

• Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as flowers

open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature will

be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed

manufacturer’s directions before spraying.

• Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings

of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semishaded

until rooted.

• Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape.

Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs

before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape

myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting

unwanted canes out at base of plant.

• Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the

spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old

beds, keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of

new beds for roses.

• Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody

plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be

expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural

needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid

crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet

soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist.

• Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about

50% humus, including rotted manure.

• Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender

plants. Water. Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature

rises. Protect low plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but

remove when weather warms.
