Every Christmas Story Ever Told—and then some!
Written by Michael Carlton, Jim FitzGerald and John K. Alvarez
cast sets out to perform A Christmas Carol but one cast member has other ideas
and sends the whole crew on a romp through every Christmas Story you can
imagine. It’s a non-stop ride with
audience participation, dancing, Christmas trivia and lots of holiday classics.
Kids will enjoy the fun, but ages 10 and up only please. Bring a
non-perishable food item for the Boys and Girls Club food pantry and receive $2
off your ticket. Show dates:
December 7, 8 and 14, 15 at 8pm at the Boys and Girls Club, 471 Atlantic
inaugurated our theater space at the auditorium in the Boys and Girls Club of
Bellport with a staged reading of Our Town by Thornton Wilder, on September 21
and 22, directed by George Loizides. In addition to many long time
Playcrafters, George included in the cast several members from the Boys and
Girls Club, in the younger roles, making this production truly “our
town”. George commented that this is his seventh production of Our Town,
and for him one attraction of this piece is the brilliant way that Mr. Wilder
strips away the façade of the theater with no scenery or props, so that the
ideas of the play take center stage. Thanks and congratulations to the
many Playcrafters who participated in this successful production, both on and
Boys and Girls Club Auditorium
continues our efforts to develop the auditorium into a functional theater space.
For our upcoming production of Every Christmas Story Ever Told, we have
acquired a large black velour drape to cover the back wall, to create more of a
theatrical image for the space. In
addition, we are cooperating with the Boys and Girls Club to solicit bids on two
rigging projects – a “front-of-house” truss for hanging lighting
instruments, and a main drape to complete the proscenium.
In addition, we are working
with the Boys and Girls Club to provide the electrical circuits required to
power the lighting instruments for the space.
We regret to announce that long time Playcrafter Pat Corn passed away
suddenly at her home in Houston, TX. She apparently suffered a heart
attack and passed quickly. Pat was very active in Playcrafters, especially
during the seventies. Among her many starring roles, she played the lead
in "Mame", 'Gypsy", and "Hello, Dolly!". She was
singer and actress, and great fun to be around.
She also served on the Board for several terms, directed and produced
numerous shows, and hosted some great cast parties at her home in Bellport.
