Dr. Douglas Larche?s Newbery Award-winning play, ?Number the Stars? will get a sparkling theatrical makeover by the Laguna Playhouse Youth Theatre, which is sure to warm hearts. The story, originally told by author Lois Lowry in book form, takes place in Eastern Europe during World War II, and follows members of the Danish Resistance and a Jewish family?s struggle for survival during the Nazi invasion. For Kenzie McMillan, 16, who plays a member of the Resistance, the play has been an opportunity for her to learn about her own roots.
