The basic sto- PPP getting into the ry is one 0f a typical American family on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. spirit of the holidays Possum Point Players will be presenting a holiday show in De- cember full of song and dance, the perfect combi- nation to bring the spirit of the season home. Lee Cook, a local talent who has ap- peared on vari- ous stages in Sussex Coun- COOK ty, will direct "Home for the Holidays." Ac- cording to Lynne Maloy, execu- tive director of the Players, "Cook's rtsum6 is long and di- verse. He is a director, actor, singer, choreographer, model and general all-round theater man. When he directs a show, there is no detail that is too small for his attention. The sets are going to be quite spectacular, and the singing and dancing, well hold on to your hats," she said. Maloy noted that Cook "surrounds himself with tal- ented people and then he brings out the best in all of them." "Home for the Holidays" is a family affair.

Possums seeking seamstress for musical '1776' The Possum Point Players will be reviving the smash Broadway hit "1776" next spring and they are looking for a lot of help in- eluding a seamstress for each of the 28 cast members. According to Louise Hartzell, costumer for the show, this re- vival does present some of the same problems for the players as it did the first time it was pro- duced in the fall of 1975. "The first time the players presented "1776" our planning began a full year prior to the production," she said. "With a show of this size and historical significance, things such as wigs, costumes, set and furniture pieces needed to be au- thentic. We needed the commit- ment of a large group of dedicated volunteers to make it happen," she added. According to Hartzell, this time it is no different; the players still need all those people to help, and the costume area is no exception. "We would like to have one seamstress for each member of the cast. That way, seamstresses can concentrate on only one out- fit. The "southern" gentlemen wore costumes which were more elaborate than their "northern", but each one should have a special touch. Fortunately, a few of the origi- nal costumes still exist, but, in ad- dition to alterations to those, there will still be a significant number which will need to be made," Hartzell said. The players are asking anyone - with an interest in helping them recreate this memorable musical, to get in touch with director H. Barlow at 856-4154 or the players at 856-3460. HartzeU, of course, is interested in hearing from any- one willing to volunteer their time to create a costume. She will be conducting a costume construc- tion workshop in early January. People with questions about this aspect of the show may call her at 856-6166. f Need some work done | In your home or garden? | Square Club 22 tohost auction, bazaar Dec. 7 The ninth annual Christmas Bazaar and Auction, sponsored by Square Club 22, will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Dec. 7 at the Mid- dletown Fire Hall, West Green and South Scott Streets, Middletown.
