Beware the concession lemonade: Troupe 5590 will be reviving its award-winning production of Urinetown at 7:30 pm. Friday at Morsani Hall at the Straz Center. The satirical musical, which features Jimmy nominee and Walker's Rising Star acting finalist Tim Hart as Officer Lockstock, takes place in a world in which citizens must pay to pee in public amenities or face the ominous fate of being taken away to Urinetown. The show, which has been selected for the second time in a row for Palm Harbor to air before thousands at the state convention this year, will be the final production under the direction of Graham Howard. Retiring after the end of this school year, Howard leaves a legacy of award-winning productions and actors who look up to his many accolades. Photographed along with senior Hart are juniors Nina Andjelic, Kayley Kinports and Kylie Couture. Lena Schwallenberg, tb-two* staffer


Fairy tales can come true: The school's annual Relay for Life took place last weekend, with a fairy tale theme that featured the Cheshire Cat from Alice and Wonderland and Team Shrek (photographed here during a tug of war contest), which won the coveted "Most Spirited" honor. King's relay, the largest student-run event in the Southeast, raised more than $100,000 for the American Cancer Society, with results still being tallied at press time. Team Shrek captured the most spirit points for the overnight event by re-creating the ogre's swamp home on its campsite and winning "She's So Hot" with entrant Princess Fiona. Second photo is of the relay's midnight rave. William Harvey, tb-two* student editor


Keep calm and solder on: The Pinellas Education Foundation's annual Career Education Breakfast, where community, business and educational leaders raise funds for career education initiatives in Pinellas County Schools, recently honored lots of smart students. The winners of the Next Generation Entrepreneurs Program, a year-long business planning competition for juniors and seniors, are Jason Wilkinson, Shea Akerman and Jason Williams from East Lake High. These whiz kids developed a "Universal Soldering Attachment" that enables soldering to be done with one hand instead of two. The win plan has netted them $10,000, which will be awarded as they meet various milestones. Four high schools received 2014 Academies of Pinellas Outstanding Achievement Awards, earning $2,000 toward each school's programs: Dunedin High, Countryside High, East Lake High and Pinellas Park High. Pictured are members of the Dixie Hollins High culinary academy, which showcased its work. tb-two* staff
