Youth Nets Role

Beverly Campbell, 12, of Seat Pleasant, plays the part of the "chimpaboon" in the Kennedy Center's production of "The Magic Flute," which ends this week. But Campbell is already lined up to perform in another production at the Kennedy Center. She starts rehearsing next week as an extra in "Manon," which will open in February.

Campbell, a seventh-grader at St. Ann's Academy in Northwest, is one of eight local children who portray "The Magic Flute's" giant, fanciful creatures. Campbell's roles have not included singing -- so far. Said her mother, Glenda, "She's informed me she wants singing lessons now."
