Diana Funaro As a third-generation actor/producer/owner of the Glendale Centre Theatre, Tim Dietlein wears many hats and even several costumes. "When I was just 6 months old, my parents put me on stage playing the part of a baby -- type-casting, of course. Since 1981, I have been working here full time on the production side as well as acting," he said recently at his New Orleans-style theater complex. Dietlein and his actress/producer wife, Brenda, run the playhouse and are involved in every facet from casting, to production, to acting, to choosing the plays.

Saro Sarkisian GLENDALE -- Two teams who had similar records and offensive production last year, will meet to kick off the new season, as both Verdugo Hills (6.9 points per game) and Hoover High (7.5 ppg) look to turn things around at 7 tonight at Glendale High's Moyse Field. Like Tornado Coach Rob Swartz said, "The game is apples versus apples." Verdugo Hills -- which finished 1-9 last season and tied for fourth place in the Sunset Six League -- will face a Hoover team, winless in 2000, finishing last in the Pacific League.

JOYCE RUDOLPH Artistic directors of A Noise Within see a parallel between themselves and the quest the company is on to fund a new building and the characters in their new season. All are in fierce pursuit of truth and fueled by a daring spirit. All the plays surround the notion of characters learning the truth about themselves, said husband and wife Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez Elliott. Thus, the season has been titled "Truth and Dare." There is no fixed formula for choosing plays each season, Geoff Elliott said.

After grabbing the final automatic playoff berth out of the Pacific League and winning a postseason match, the Hoover High boys' tennis team achieved satisfaction last season. While the Tornadoes will eye a return trip to the postseason, the expectations have been raised this season under coach Julie Hoppe. “We want to go farther than we did last season,” said Hoppe, whose team dropped a first-round match to second-seeded Santa Monica. “We feel like we have a team that can do that.

The 2012 Major League Baseball season began halfway around the globe in the wee hours of Wednesday morning with a pitch thrown by Glendale's very own Brandon McCarthy. It was a mixed bag for the right-handed pitcher when it came to firsts, as he was responsible for the first hit, run and homer of the young season, but also the first strikeout. McCarthy's Oakland Athletics suffered a 3-1 loss in 11 innings to the Seattle Mariners in baseball's season opener in Tokyo, in which McCarthy put forth a solid effort, but didn't factor in the decision.

Last season, St. Francis High and Crescenta Valley were the most successful boys' soccer programs in the area, with both squads advancing to the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division I and IV playoffs, respectively. The Golden Knights and Falcons will look to keep things running smoothly and senior leadership and depth could well be the keys for both. The Golden Knights have depth in goal, key pieces back in the midfield led by senior Austin Frank and a pair of dangerous strikers up top in seniors Eric Bocanegra and Billy McCreary.

A strong 1-2 punch has kept the Glendale Community College men's cross-country team in the thick of the chase for Western State Conference, Southern California and state titles over the past several seasons, whether it was Frankie Quijada and Jonathan Alpizar leading the squad to third in state two years ago or Rico Gutierrez and Ricky Avila pacing last year's squad to sixth place. This season will see that trend continue, as the Vaqueros will have another strong combo at the front of the pack in sophomore captain Alec Nelson and freshman Mizrael Mendez.

The various anomalies in the Hoover High football team's 2011 schedule include an abundance of home games, more Thursday night games than ever before and a double dose of civic rivalry. The latter is the most notable difference from previous Tornadoes' campaigns, as for the first time ever, the regular season will kick off exactly the same way as it customarily ends — with a clash against archrival Glendale. "It's interesting, it will be a fun way to kick off our season and get everybody going," said first-year Hoover Coach Andrew Policky, who took over for Chris Long in March when the schedule had already been arranged.

GLENDALE — For the second time in as many years, a veteran major leaguer with local ties has retired. Just as St. Francis High graduate Mark Loretta hung up his cleats before the 2010 season, Loretta's former high school teammate and Glendale resident Gregg Zaun called it a career in early March after 16 years in the big leagues. As Opening Day approaches on Thursday, the number of area products set to occupy major league rosters has dwindled to its lowest number in years. Crescenta Valley High product Trevor Bell figures to be back up with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim sooner than later, but will begin the season in the minor leagues and Glendale Community College product Marco Estrada has an outside shot at cracking the Milwaukee Brewers' Opening Day roster after impressing as an invitee from minor league camp.

GLENDALE — With nary a league title or a playoff win among local softball teams a season ago, the 2011 season that opens today will be one in which improvement is sought across the board. Crescenta Valley High, the area's most storied program, finished just a game away from claiming the Pacific League title despite going through what many deemed a rebuilding year, while Flintridge Prep and Holy Family worked their way into the postseason only to fall in the wild-card round.

GLENDALE — From sprints to relays and jumps to vaults, the five local boys' track and field teams appear to have their bases covered. With the first starter's pistol set to go off Thursday, the athletes are ready to step to the starting line and hunt down a league championship and qualify for the CIF division finals. To get there, they must first get through an assortment of nonleague and league meets and invitationals. Each team will soon find out where they stand.

While going from hole to hole, Loughrie, who will begin his 25th season in charge of the Rebels, gained additional knowledge about the sport from Bouchard. Loughrie also liked the way Bouchard, a sophomore, remained composed when hitting the ball. "He's a dream player," Loughrie said of Bouchard. "Every drive he hit, his trajectory was perfect.

GLENDALE — For all the success that's been achieved of late by the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team, Coach Pete Loporchio could only marvel at what the future might hold. The Falcons captured the Pacific League championship last year and advanced to the quarterfinals for the third consecutive season. While past teams featured a talented cast of athletes, the Falcons weren't always blessed with a wealth of depth. That might change in a big way for Loporchio and the Falcons, who will look to win another league title and perhaps advance a round or two farther in the postseason.
