Possum Point Players prepare for 'Wonderland' Possum Point Players is prepar- ing for its next production, "Alice in Wonderland," sponsored by Delaware National Bank. The play is being produced by the Possum Juniors, the teenage-arm of the Players. All aspects of "Al- ice" are being managed by teenagers between 13 and 17. The director, Luke Sizemore of Georgetown, and the assistant di- rector, Laura Belcot, also of Georgetown, are both under 16. "They may be young," said Players' president John Hulse, "but they are talented and organ- ized." The classic tale of Alice's adventures will bring many beloved characters to life, includ- ing Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Mad Hatter, the Queen and of course, Alice. "This is a show for the entire family," Hulse said. "Starting with an exciting tea par- ty one hour before each perform- ance, we hope to transport our au- dience into Wonderland as they enter Possum Hall." "Alice in Wonderland" will be performed at 7 p.m, with the tea party beginning at 6 p.m., July 21, 22, 28 and 29; and at 2 p.m., with a 1 p.m. tea party, on July 23 and 30.
