Fred Applegate, musical theater actor, visited the young cast.
Woodland Hills High School musical cast members got some tips from a pro last week. Fred Applegate—an American actor, singer and dancer—surprised students while he was in town performing in the "Anything Goes" national tour.

Assistant Superintendent Alan Johnson has been acting as deputy superintendent since. School board member Jeff Hanchett said going out for a search would be "very unfair" to Johnson. "He's worked very hard during this period of …
