What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Marco Polo attracts local schools and the Carroll webpage describes that, “The story is set in the ’’thir­ teenth century a Venetian galley is at the dock, preparing to sail for the mysterious East. 14-year-old Marco Polo conceals himself in a cargo destined for the great Khan of Cathay. En route to Cathay, the Polos arouse the suspicions of the Khan's enemies and young Marco becomes a hostage. The play is a history-fantasy-adventure based on real and imagined events.” This play is one of the two chil­ dren shows Carroll Theater per­ forms in a season. This means that the show is not only open to the public on the weekend but also has special week long mati­ nees for local schools only. Carroll students might see hoards of first and second graders walking through cam­ pus, they are just taking in the visual feast of Marco Polo. “This is a super cast and the story has drama, magic, foreign lands and is great for the whole Carroll com­ munity,” said senior director Aaron Delman. This show is one of the few senior directed shows. Del- man is a theater major and has the privilege to direct now that he is in his senior year. “Although I am excited it will be difficult,” said Delman. “Its a fun obstacle to conquer.” This show is the finale to the 2006- 2007 theater season. “I hope this show goes out with a bang” said sophomore Alicia Davis. Davis who runs the box office enjoys work­ ing the children’s shows. “It is so fun to see kids laugh and interact with the actors,” said Davis. “I’m excited to act in front of kids because they think everything is funny,” said freshman Jordyn Auvil. “I’d like to thank Hulagu Khan and all his supporters for causing civil war in the Mongol Empire which allowed later Khans to refo­ cus their conquest efforts on China instead of Europe,” said sopho­ more Greg Mengel “So that this play is about them in the East and not us,” said Men­ gel cast to play Achmed who is defeated by The Yellow Lama played by sophomore Cassandra Rapkoch. “I’m the Yellow Lama, watch out cause here I come-a, in this epic play, I help save the day and make Achmed yell for his mama,” said Rapkoch.
