‘Army’ knows how
to party!


CUTTING THE CAKE, 'CAMELOT' STYLE: "Camelot" was the theme of Tom and Holly Holowach's wedding, and their 25th anniversary fell on the opening night of Army Community Theatre's revival of the Lerner & Loewe classic. Tom, who plays Sir Dinadan at ACT, made ready to use his sword as the couple celebrated in the foyer after the show.


PARTY MUSIC:Zaff Bobilin, left, and Lisa Gomes provided Medieval music during the opening night pre-show reception outside Richardson Theatre. Sponsors and other VIPs enjoyed ribs and spicy shrimp courtesy of Dixie Grill, but the music was free for all. Gomes and Boblin returned to entertain during intermission.


CONGRATULATIONS!: Tom and Holly Holowach, center, celebrated with "Camelot" cast members Jakara Mato, left, and David C. Farmer during their anniversary party after the opening-night performance. Farmer, who plays the wizard Merlin, was given a lighted "wand" that inspired much off-color humor.


READY FOR THE PAGEANTRY: Maria De Ysla, center, was one of several costumed characters who gave a "dark ages" ambiance to the colorful pre-show party outside the theater. Reneta and Fred Dreyfuss admired De Ysla's armor and lethal-looking sword before going inside with Eddie and Patti Sherman.


THE PARTY BEFORE THE PARTY: "Camelot" musical director Darren Kimura, second from left, treated his orchestra members and a few special guests to dinner before the show. Urara Morioka, left, Jennifer Lai, Angela Schoen and Nate Richardson arrived early to help him set things up.
