The shows are "A Funny Thing Happened oh the Way to the Fo- rum," "Twelve Angry Jurors,"' "The Importance of Being Ernest," "Moon Over Buffalo" and "It's a Wonderful Life." The players will open and close their season with musicals. Harvey Williams, board vice- president and member of the play reading committee, said that the selections will provide entertain- ment and thought-provoking the- atre for a wide cross section of the theatre-going audience of south- ern Delaware. He said a few ol' the shows have been performed in the area, but most have not been seen locally in several years. "We have quite a bit of comedy in here. 'Forum' is a very funny musical that has filled houses for community and professional the- atres. It's recent successful return to Broadway reminded us that it is always funny, and fun to do," Williams said. The Stephen Sondheim musi- The following movies are now playing in the resort area: The Wizard of Oz: Dorothy's house is whisked away by a tornado into the land over the rainbow. Produced in 1939, the classic movie was revolutionary for its time and remains the influ- ence for such modern tales as "Pleasantville." Written in 1900 by Frank L. Baum. Rated G.

The .play was written as "Twelve Angry Men"; however, it lends itself well to having women in some of the roles. In following the course of a jury attempting to render a ve[dict in a capital case, the play focuses on the weighti- ness of coming to a decision, and how issues that were so clear can suddenly become clouded. Another classic comedy, Oscar : Wilde's "The Importance of Be- ing Earnest' takes the action to turn-of-the-century England " where the only class that counts is upper and opinions and deeds are kept shallow and held in place by a tongue in cheek. Production dates are 'slated for July 23, 24, 25, 30, 31 and Aug. 1. An off-the-wall comedy that takes well-aimed potshots at the denizens of the theatre world, ,Moon Over Buffalo" will make a community theatre premiere at the players' Riverfront Theatre. The raucous and rowdy play had a successful run on Broadway and a road company recently brought the show to the Playhouse when they prf0rm the musical version of"It's a Wonderful Life." . - All the familiar characters that movie audiences, have loved for generations are here, this time ac- companied by songs that add to the warmth and sentimentality of the Christmas favorite. ' The musical is to be performed Nov. 26, 27, 28 and Dec. 3, 4 and 5. Season tickets are $47 for all five productions and may be or- dered by calling 422-0220. Debbie Tappan, the players' managing director, said that giv- ing season tickets as a holiday gift is becoming a popular idea.
