Historians have called it The Panic of 1893. Today we would call it a recession or, even worse, a depression. It was so bad then that panicky people were lined up outside their banks to recover the money they had invested. The problem was the banks had no money to give back.

 The show’s finale. The show’s finale.  Wildwood Crest Memorial School presented Disney’s “My Son Pinocchio Jr.” in December and it was a smashing success. The play was directed by Marilyn Glenn and Alyssa Gannon, as always.

“My Son Pinocchio” is the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto’s little wooden puppet who is given life in the toy workshop. The students presented the junior version of the play. Pinocchio is played by Alexa Lord, and Geppetto is played by Alan Rendzak. Both give wonderful performances. The story tackles what it means to be the “perfect child,” and what it means to be a “real father.”
