Second Street Players suggest season's gift To tuck into a stocking or wrap up under the tree, season tickets for the Second Street Players 1999 season are available for holiday giving. Members of the players think that the season tickets are a great gift idea that gives all year long. The Second Street Players se- lected five plays for the regular season, "A Funny Thing Hap- pened on the Way to the Forum," "Twelve Angry Jurors," "The Im- portance of Being Earnest," "Moon Over Buffalo" and "It's a Wonderful Life." The players will open and close the coming season with musicals. The season runs from the first show in March through the final show that ends the first weekend in December. Season tickets are $47 for all five productions and may be or- dered by calling 302-422-0220. Senior citizens and students who reserve for Sunday matinees pay $42. 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 as well as give audiences a chance to see many actors that they know from their own com- munities. He said a few of the shgws have been performed in the area, but most have not been seen locally in several years. "There's a little something for everyone here; lots of comedy, but we're also performing a strong drama that should please the audi- ence and challenge our actors. 'Forum' is a very funny musical that has filled houses for commu- nity and professional theatres. It's recent successful return to Broad- way reminded us that it is always funny, and fun to do," Williams said. "People are talking about our season, there's a lot of excitement and we expect to sell a lot of tick- ets." • The Stephen Sondheim musical comedy version of politics and personalities in Nero's Rome is scheduled for March 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28. A classic drama set in the closed jury room of a murder trial, "Twelve Angry Jurors" will be presented May 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 and 30, 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 verdict 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 July 23, 24, 25, 30 and 31, and August 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 suc- cessful run on Broadway and a road company recently brought the show to the Playhouse in Wilmington. Show dates in Mil- ford are Oct. 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17. Finishing the season with a hol- iday classic, Second Street Players also present another premiere when they perform 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 musi- cal is to be performed Nov. 26, 27 and 28, and Dec. 3, 4 and 5. Debbie Tappan, the players' managing director, said that giv- ing season tickets as a holiday gift is becoming a popular idea. She said having a season ticket guar- antees holders the seat of their choice, even when players' pro- ductions are sold out. Gift certifi- cates for season tickets can be re- served now.
