Sutton Wooddy, on display March 6-29, 1998. Wooddy's works skillfully cap- ture the calm seasonal moods of wetlands, fields and woods, rivers and creeks. In contrast are her paintings of landscapes with flashes of light- ning striking the ground. Wooddy, who lives in Port Tobacco, Md., is a longtime member of the Re- hoboth Art League. Her special kinship to nature began with her youth in the apple orchard country of West Virginia. She grew up with the backdrop of.the Blue Ridge Mountains, in sight of meadows of wildflowers. She began painting at the age of 9. Her bronze sculptures capture the spirit of the animals she played with as a child - hunting dogs and Tickets for Possums' 'The Secret Garden' on sale now Maybe the unseasonable weath- er that brought out daffodils and forsythia early has also put people in the mood for lyrical music and a tale of hope, friendship and growth. Or maybe southern Delaware theatre patrons just know that they can't pass up the opportunity to see the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, "The Secret Garden" in their own backyard. Whatever the reason, something has set the ticketline at Possum Hall ringing since tickets went on sale March 3. Lynn Maloy, Possum Point Players' executive director, said that reservations have been com- ing in steadily since sales were an- nounced. The award-winning musical is based on the classic children's book by Frances Hodgson Bumett and the stage version has played to sold-out houses on Broadway and in regional and community theatres throughout the world. Kenney Workman, director, said that the Possum's production features several well-known area actors including John Hulse, Maryl Thompson, James Keegan, Jacob Norfleet, Sandy Browning, Jim Hartzell and Georgiana Sta- Icy. The large cast also gives young Rosie Seagraves and Jack Her- holdt a chance to act like brats and still be in character as they portray central characters Mary Lennox and Colin Craven. Many of the cast members said that the reputation of the popuhr show attracted them, and they are intrigued by the challenging, but hauntingly beautiful songs. Most have seen at least one version of the story that went on to be one of the most successful Broadway shows. The characters overcome loss and physical and mental challenge as they come to realize that there is life and joy all around, even in the midst of dormant, untendled feelings or gardens. The statge must also reflect this growth amd change as the secret, locked gar- den, all overgrown and dead,, is coaxed to show life and inspi]ra- tion. The production dates are April 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. All tickets are $12; senior citi- zens and students pay a $10 dis- count price for matinees only. Those wishing to reservetickets can call the Possum Point Players' ticket line, 856-4560, at any time. horses.
