68 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August I - August 7, 1997 Baystar sets auditions for "Black Comedy Aug. 10-11 Baystar Production, Inc. will hold auditions at the Sea Horse Restaurant in Rehoboth Beach on Sunday, Aug. 10, at 2 p.m., and on Monday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m., for "Black Comedy," a one act British farce by Peter Shaffer that will run in the Baystar Dinner Theater on Thursday and Friday evenings from Oct. 2 through Oct. 31. The play gets its name from all that happens to a struggling young artist's important evening-a mil- lionaire art collector is coming to look at his work-when the lights go out and everything goes wrong does so in the dark. To the audi- ence, the characters are in the light; to the characters, they are in the dark. There are five roles for men aged 25 and up and also three roles for women aged 25 and up. Those who cannot make the scheduled audition dates or who are interested in working with the show in a technical or other ca- pacity should call Geoff Thomp- son, director, on 645-0404 or 644- 2270. The Baystar Dinner Theater is located in the Sussex Room the Sea Horse Restaurant which is on Rehoboth Avenue in Rehoboth Beach. For more information call 227- 7451. Possum Point Players' Theatre Arts Summer Camp participants build the set. PPPs Theatre Arts Camp ends with a bang Possum Point Players' Theatre Arts Sumhaer Camp came to a dramatic conclusion on July 26 with the production of "Further Tales of the Arabian Nights." The show was performed to an audience of family and friends. Campers learned everything it takes to put on a show, from set construction, props, estumes, makeup and acting. Rhonda Sharman, director of the camp, calls the children in- volved "just amazing. They do everything that needs to be done in five days and their performance is excellent. They are incredibly focused and have fun at the same time," Sharman said. A number of years ago, Possum Point Players put together the camp in an effort to teach young people about theatre and to pro- vide them with a reprieve from the summer doldrums. "We are a community theatre," said Jim Hartzell, president of the board of directors of Possum Point Players, "and that means the entire community. The Camp al- lows us to reach out into the com- munity to help create the 'players' of tomorrow." Thirty-nine children from across Sussex County are in the camp which is broken into two' age groups. Boys and girls enter- ing grades four through six work in the morning and those entering grades seven through ten have af- ternoon sessions. "Both groups put on the same play, and it is very interesting to watch the different approaches to the same material," Sharman said. "The younger group is very literal. They perform exactly as they are directed. "The older children like to put their own experiences into action, improvising and adding dimen- sion to the characters." Patti Kriegel of Millsboro is co- director of the camp. "This experi- ence impacts the children's entire life," she said. "They learn prob- lem solving, thinking on their feet, commitment and team playing. After this experience, the kids will never watch a video or movie in the same light again," said Kriegel. Carey Cahill, a sixth grader from Sussex Central Middle School said .she's doing thing she's never done before. Her fa- vorite aspects of the camp are makeup and costumes. Possum Point Players will hold the camp again during the 1998 summer season. Anyone interested in learning more about the camp may call 856-3460 on Tuesdays and Thurs- days. 00'00Prinled T-Shirls & Sportswear Geoff Vernon is now in independent operation as Artwork  Logo Design Quick Service.
