S

ometimes even the most
intelligent, soft-spoken and
refined young woman needs
to find her inner Keith Moon and
pound the drums to "Won't Get Fooled
Again."
Maybe after performing she'll need
to relax with a good, old-fashioned
game of pinball with a dizzy silver
globe that spins and dives and jumps
amid vivid lights. Ding! Clang! Ting!
Then it's off for a fresh, hot soft
pretzel and a movie, followed by a
quiet hour of study.
And it's all in one place: The Jewish
Community Center of Metropolitan
Detroit's Beverly Prentis Wagner Teen
Center will hold its grand opening
from 8-11 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 17.
In addition to the facility's already
diverse collection of games and
activities, as colorful as a bubble-gum
machine, the evening will include
entertainment by Star Trax and a

chance to play Boogie Heads, which
creates a DVD of a person singing
— his or her real head atop a funky,
dancing cartoon body. (Adults: Do not
consider for even a single moment try-

"I am so excited for the grand open-
ing of the Teen Center:' says Lindsey
Fox, coordinator of Center Day Camps
and Teen Services. "This is a wonder-
ful opportunity for the teens in our
community to have a place to call their
own."
Before it became the Teen Center,
the area housed the former Holocaust
Memorial Center. The space underwent
extensive renovations designed and
overseen, top to bottom, by the teens
themselves.
Erica Sachse, a student at Berkley
High School, and Ben Goutkovitch,
who attends the Frankel Jewish
Academy, are co-chairmen of the Teen
Center student board.
As they planned the Teen Center,
Sachse and Goukovitch met with
