Audiences exiting Northgate High School's spring musical production of "Mary Poppins" will leave the auditorium with more than just the lyrics of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" lodged in their minds.

They'll also have visions of Laken Burns, portraying Mary Poppins, in full flight across the stage, as well as other students performing some athletically demanding choreography throughout the show.

Of course, Laken will have some help in navigating Mary's flight, that coming from "Flying by Foy," a company based in Las Vegas, with offices in London, and Philadelphia.

As the eyes of the world turn toward Pittsburgh and international leaders prepare to meet in the Steel City, few will have any idea how far and wide the impact of the G-20 Summit will reach locally.

While most resources will be focused within the City of Pittsburgh, the suburban areas will not be left unaffected by the Summit and its related events.

For school children throughout the North Boroughs, the Summit is providing an opportunity to learn everything from economics to geography to statesmanship. For municipal officials, however, the darker side of the Summit must be addressed. For others, the event is providing a renewed commitment to community involvement.
