Olympic-size visit. Just in time for the opening ceremonies this week, gymnastics fans from the Perimeter Gymnastics team and the Marcus Jewish Community Center’s gymnastics camp were treated to a visit from Nastia Luikin.
The Russian-born 2008 Gold Medal winner visited with the children earlier this month to share her career experiences.
Concert for scholarships. The fourth annual Tim Redovian Scholarship Concert is scheduled for Fri., Aug. 10 at Dunwoody Baptist Church.

Just in time for the Dog Days of Summer. How about a “Spring Awakening?”
It’s the title of the 2012 teen summer stock production by Company J at the Marcus Jewish Community Center and its focus is the trials, tears and exhilaration of the teen years.
Billed as a groundbreaking fusion between morality, sexuality and rock and roll, the show is recommended for mature audiences and features mostly local teen actors. As one of the show’s many underlying messages of teenage angst, all of the adult roles in the story are played by two actors, clarifying the characters’ belief that all adults are, in the ways that matter to an adolescent, inherently the same.
The show opens Aug. 8 and runs through Aug. 19. For tickets, visit companyjatl.org or call 678-812-4002.
