John Muir Middle School's auditorium holds some special memories for me. When I was 4, my older sister had sewn matching dresses for us in her clothing class, and we modeled them in a fashion show on the auditorium stage. Years later, when I attended Muir, Allan Burnside was the principal. Not your grim or stoic school administrator; Burnside was cool. He was approachable. He would start up a conversation with the students passing in the halls and had a jovial manner. He also drove a wood-paneled station wagon, circa 1940, known as a Woodie.

Maya Kukes MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- In the old days, the female roles in Shakespeare's plays were performed by men. The drama department at Burbank High School turned that idea on its head with its production of "Henry V," where many of the females will be playing men. Even Henry will be played by a girl -- senior Selin Mehrabian. "It's really different from traditional versions where guys played all the parts," Mehrabian said. The cast has been rehearsing for the play since early March.
