Real-life drama
Rocky Hill's Monica Lange takes her cameras inside CHOP
   A local filmmaker is taking viewers inside CHOP.

   Monica Lange of Rocky Hill is the writer, producer and director of “Twice Born: Stories From the Special Delivery Unit,” a three-part series airing on PBS stations WHYY and WNET, beginning March 31. The series shares stories of families whose children undergo fetal surgery at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment and its special delivery unit.

   Ms. Lange has been a TV producer for 25 years and has worked for Discovery Communications, Bill Moyers and WNET. She has made previous films on health and family topics, such as autism and conjoined twins, and her interest in sharing CHOP’s story began when she started to learn about fetal surgery.

A Screwball Comedy
Bucks County Playhouse is kicking off a new season with an old-fashioned show
   IT’S a story you’ve heard a dozen times or more: A kid’s baseball card collection gets thrown out or sold by his mother, and he spends the rest of life dreaming of the memories and riches that were lost when those little cardboard rectangles were discarded.

   It happened to Albert Tapper, but he did something about it.

   ”I reclaimed my baseball card collection,” he says “When you get to be 15, 16 years old, baseball cards don’t look as good as girls. My mother asked me if I wanted them, I said, ‘No throw them away.’ Everybody’s mother threw their cards away.”
