CAPE GAZE'IriS, Friday, June 13 - June 19, 2003 - 95 Tickets still available for Possums' ']]rlahton Beach Mcmolra' Three performances remain of Possum Point Players' production of Neff Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs". The play opened June 6 with nearly full houses for each performance on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Tickets are still available for all three remaining performances, 8 p.m., June 13 and 14 and 2 p.m., June 15. "This has been a great experi- ence for me," said director Nina Galerstein, "It's been so much fun to see this group of people pull to- gether. We've worked hard, learned a lot, really bonded and had a lot of fun in the process. I think we've all come to really love this show." The group of people to whom she's referring is the cast and crew of this show, as well as the numer- ous volunteers bekind the scenes. The cast and crew together form a diverse group, with different backgrounds in and out of theatre. "This is Susann's first show with Possum Point Players," said Georgetown-native Cat Baker of her fellow cast-member, Delaware newcomer Susann Studz "Sue is a great addition to Pos- sums - what a trooper." Props mis- tress Nancy Peipher praised her assistant, Lucy Carter of Laurel, too: "This is only Lucy's second experience with us, and we love having her. She comes in consis- tently, works hard, and brings a positive attitude. She has been a great help to me on this show, do- ing both props and set painting." The way this cast has bonded with each other makes the charac- ters of this heartfelt play come to life as a family. "This really is a play for every- one," said Cassandra Petersen, a member of the Players, "This cast is very believable as the Jerome family, and the relationships are applicable to anyone who is a part of any family - It's universal. Each member of the cast and au- dience could come away with a unique interpretation of the same show." In "Brighton Beach Memoirs", as in all Possum shows, a person's level of "theatre" training or expe- rience doesn't matter. People of- ten come in offering nothing more than interest and a desire to be in- volved. "A perfect example," pointed out Galerstein, "was on the spring cleaning day we had here at the hall. Lucas, one of the PJs [Pos- sum Juniors], was here with his dad to help clean. We enlisted them instead, to help spread dirt on our 'sidewalk'. hey had a great time - father and son - mak- ing our set appropriately dirty." There is much to see and hear in this Possum's production. In addi- tion to Simon's unique way with words, audience members are be- ing treated to the vision of Nina Galerstein and Esther Friend.

J. for the championship of the Mid Atlantic District and with the potential to compete next summer in Louisville, Ky. for Internation- al recognition. The First State Harmonizers won the Intermedi- ate Chorus Championship on May 17 in Smyrna with its 56 man cho- rns. They believe that if they can add 10 more voices, they can be very competitive with the larger choruses. Vocally they can assign with a part with which men will be comfortable. Men who enjoy singing melody or harmony are especially needed. They will be holding guest night at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, June 17, at the Calvary United Methodist Church in Milford.
