Possum Point Player Juniors finish 1997 summer season Something very special hap- pened recently at Possum Point Players in Georgetown. The youth theatre group - Possum Juniors (PJs) - held their production .of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." After every performance the children in the audience made their way to the stage with their program in hand and 'gently mobbed' the cast asking for auto- graphs ind'pictures. snow White, the Dark Queen and the Prince were special favorites. "This is the first time I can re- member such a phenomenon tak- ing place," said Jim Hartzell, pres- ident of the Possum Point Players. "The Juniors put such a great package together from sets, cos- tumes, acting and lights that the audience was truly transformed to the time and place of Snow White. It was a thrill to observe both the audience and the ensemble. I'm not so sure who was more excited - the little five-year-old looking up at the Dark Queen or Nicole Hoffman from Georgetown, who played the Queen." PJs are the student arm of Pos- sum Point Players, the 24-year old Georgetown Community Theatre. In existence since September, 1995, the PJs are a drama organi- zation created for and by teens. The members, who serve as ap- prentices for several Possum Point Players' shows, also mounted a full-scale theatrical production in 1996 ("Winnie the Pooh") and Big Dogs supports Sea Witch Halloween Festival Big Dogs Sportswear has com- mitted to over $1,000 in sponsor- ship prizes for the Best Costume Pet Contest which is part of the Eighth Annual Sea Witch Hal- loween & Fiddler's Festival.
