Possum Point Players producers helping "Cactus Flower" to growl Gail Dusbiber of Milford and Jim Hartzell of Georgetown are producing the Possum Point Play- ers upcoming dinner theatre pre- sentation, "Cactus Flower. "Ac- cording to them, it's a challenge of major proportions that goes on behind the scenes and is not as ob- vious to the audience as the come- dy that occupies the stage. "Producing any show is a major undertaking," Dusbiber said. "But a dinner theatre which is also be- ing offered at a location away from the Players' own hall in Georgetown brings additional re- sponsibilities." Producers in Possum Point Players productions are responsi- ble for over-seeing sale of tickets, publicity circulation, production of programs and staffing of volun- teers for operation of the house on play nights. In other words, all the areas which are not concerned with the actual play being per- formed on stage. The fact that it is a dinner theatre also gives the pro- ducers responsibility for arranging for food service. That task has been essentially assumed by Hartzell's wife, Louise. But that doesn't relieve the producers of their responsibili- ty to make sure that everything is accomplished. "We are providing Louise with plenty of assistance," Dusbiber said. "Gwyn Sharp of Lewes, Ken Workman and Rosanne Pack of Milford, as well as Jim, myself, and my husband, Martin, will be spending a lot of time in the kitchen of the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center helping Louise make sure that the dinner runs smoothly," she added. Members of the Players and their friends volunteer their time to serve the meal. This requires a significant amount of effort in ob- taining, coordinating and instruct- ing the servers. With only two weeks to go be- Checking seating charts and volunteer Hsts, Jim and Gaff Dusbiber are in the thick of the action of ready for Possum Point Players' dinner theatre, Flower.  The two Possums' board members are serving as Beach Convention Center Thursday, Jan. 30 Feb. 2. fore Thursday, Jan. 30 opening night, signing up volunteers and tying up loose ends is shifting into high gear. "While Jim makes the phone calls and schedules the volunteers, I oversee the seating charts and serving operation," said Dusbiber. "Since we will be serving over 40 tables of eight people, our vol- unteers will number between 25 and 30 for each of the four perfor- mances of the show," she added. Because the Players will be per- forming the show in a facility away from their "home" in Georgetown, liaison with officials in charge of the show space must be handled. That responsibility is being assumed by Martin Dus- biber, former assistant city man- ager for Rehoboth Beach. "Martin is one of the major rea- sons the Players decided to return to Rehoboth for dinner theatre," Hartzell said. "He was extensively involved in the renovations to the convention center, and convinced us last year it would be an ex, :el- lent facility for our dinner the, Ire. He was right, and we're glad t, be returning again this year. S) it made a lot of sense that he she uld be our connection with the tdwn during the run of the show." ] Another major responsibility for this production is the handling of the bar. | Hartzell said Jon Sharp has agreed to assume this task. Hebas supervised the bar for most of the Possums' dinner theatres andhe has always done an excellent jO b . The remaining areas of res r on- sibility for the producers are the program, which is being tacen care of by Gail Dusbiber, and I: ub- licity, which will be tackled by Joel Johnson of Georgetown,  he is the Players' board membe" in charge of publicity. Hartzell rill also lend a hand in this area.
