Gerritsen Beach

Congratulations to Danielle Felicetti. The brainy beauty is none other than the brilliant daughter of very proud mom, Tina Felicetti, operations associate at this paper and proud pop Sal Felicetti. Standing O pal Danielle graduated cum laude from St. Francis College where she is a member of Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society — with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. She is currently continuing her education at Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus, striving for a Masters of Science in Physical Education.

The really amazing feat is that our pal Danielle graduated the four-year program in only three and a half years. Yes — she’s that smart.

Mom Tina told Standing O (we’ve been bosom buddies for years), “She got the brains from her dad, but the looks from me.” I don’t know, mom is a pretty smart cookie, too.

Standing O wishes Danielle much success, and can’t wait until she’s wearing the Masters’ hood when she graduates in approximately two years.

Split personalities

Nothing spells fun like a production of the Robert Louis Stevenson’s book, “The Strange Tale of Jekyll & Hyde.” Drama students at IS 87, Christa McAuliffe Intermediate School, are dusting off their tails, donning costumes, and polishing up their English accents for a performance of “Jekyll & Hyde” on March 8, 9, (two showings) and March 10. That’s right, you have four chances to catch these rising stars and future Broadway thespians in this musical adaptation of the classic story, directed by drama teacher Susan Huizinga.

Performance times: March 8 at 7:30 pm, March 9 at 2:30 and 7:30 pm, and March 10 at 2:30 pm.

IS 1876 Christa McAuliffe Intermediate School [1171 65th St. at 12th Avenue in Dyker Heights, (718) 236–3394].

Bookworms rejoice

Can’t get to the library? Don’t worry! The Brooklyn Public Library just launched its first mobile app for iPhone and Android smartphones. The app is free — yippee! — and allows readers to personalize their library experience on-the-go, as well as find new titles from recent arrivals and New York Times Bestseller lists.

Users can search the library’s catalogue, save to-read lists of e-books and e-audiobooks, manage library accounts (renew materials and place holds on titles), find detailed branch information including GPS mapping (which is really great for Standing O), and scan an ISBN with the smartphones to search collections.

Find the free iPhone app by searching the iTunes Store with the key words brooklyn library, bpl, or mybpl. To find it on Android phones, search Google Play Store and type in brooklyn bibliocomons or bibliocommons.

Boerum Hill

It’s all about the play

You’ve got to see it, even if you don’t know boards from donuts about basketball, you will be at the edge of your seat in the New York premier of “The Play About the Coach,” a one-man show that takes the audience into the final minutes of a high-stakes game through the eyes of a desperate man. The play is written and performed by borough son Paden Fallis.

As the clock ticks down in the final three minutes — talk about sudden death! — a coach’s world comes crashing down around him. The coach comes head-to-head with a backstabbing assistant, a gifted adversary, and a god-like referee. This thrilling one-man show takes the audience to the final crucial minutes.

“Coach” runs from Feb. 27 to March 17 at the Fourth Street Theatre in Manhattan. I know you have to take a trip over the bridge, but it’s worth it.

Tickets are a steal at $18 and can be purchased at or by calling (212) 868–4444.

Read Standing O every Thursday on!
