Enjoyed parts Glendale resident Megan A. Kelly, 12, will be a seventh-grader at Rosemont Middle School in the fall. I enjoyed parts of "Chicken Run," even though I'm not a fan of claymation. Some of the jokes were funny, but it was the average story of good prevailing over evil. In this case, the good part was the chickens escaping the evil Tweedy's farm. I have to warn you, it's a very old-fashioned chicken farm. You stop laying eggs and it's curtains for you. If you decide to see it, don't leave the theater before the credits end, they have a special ending that you won't want to miss.

He continued in the class, but was presented an ultimatum -- audition for the spring musical or get an F. Park auditioned, and now hopes to continue his acting career at the Guildford School of Acting Conservatory in the United Kingdom -- if he gets the money.
