    Parents brawl at kids' play

    The Christmas spirit turned sour yesterday when two parents fought over seats to watch their children perform at a holiday pageant inside a packed Great Kills pre-school auditorium.

    Venus Guerrieri, 59, and her son, Charles H. Balducci, 29, both of East Augusta Avenue, Great Kills, were arrested on the grounds of St. Clare's parish and charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

    According to police sources, Mrs. Guerrieri and Balducci had attacked a woman who said the duo -- along with Balducci's wife, Sabrina, and their 1-year-old son -- were sitting in seats she had claimed at the pageant in St. Clare's Pre-School, located on Nelson Avenue.



    The show went on after the incident.

    The victim, whose full name was officially withheld by police, was treated at Staten Island University Hospital, Prince's Bay, for minor injuries and released, officials said.

    Her husband is a retired police officer.

    "My neck, face, hair -- my whole body hurts," said the woman, who identified herself only as Cathy, speaking with the Advance at her Tompkinsville home last night. She'd gone to the event to see her 3-year-old daughter perform, she said.

    Another documented case of theater rage.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
