64 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 24 - December 30, 1998 Second S trq:et Players are seeking directors for new snow:; Second Street Players commu- nity theatre group has announced the 1999 season and the group is taking applications for directors. Anyone who wants to be consid- ered as a director is encouraged to submit a rrsum6 or letter of inter- est to Second Street Players, PO Box 470, Milford, DE 19963, or call the theatre, 422-0220. Board members recently voted to produce five plays for the regu- lar season in addition to the annu- al fund-raiser gala and children's productions. The shows are "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," "Twelve An- gry Jurors," "The Importance of Being Earnest," "Moon Over Buf- falo" and "It's a Wonderful Life." The deadline for applications to direct "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" is Wednesday, Dec. 28; applications to direct all other plays must be received by Friday, Jan. 29, 1999. "Forum" is a musical comedy that has filled houses for commu- nity and professional theatres. It was recently reprised for success- ful return to Broadway. The Stephen Sondheim musical ver- sion 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 seemed 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 t Light show debut at : L First Night ' Visitors to First Night Wilming- ton '99 should keep their eyes on the lights around Rodney Square and Market Street as a display of artistic ingenuity will begin the festivities for the Thursday, Dec. 31, annual event. A spectacular display of light- ing will accompany the Shao Lin San Kung Fu Dance Troupe per- formance, as First Night Wilm- ington '99 is opened by Wilming- ton mayor James Sills Jr., News Journal publisher Curtis Riddle, Miss Delaware USA Jackie Pilla and Miss Teen Delaware USA Ashley Coleman. The event kicks off at 5 p.m. on Rodney Square. "The lighting will create a brand new atmosphere for downtown Wilmington," said professional lighting designer Marcus Abbott. "Hopefully, it will become some- thing people will look forward to each year." The Providence, R.I., native has produced similar lighting displays in San Francisco and Dallas. "I'm planning to take full advantage of Wilmington's unique architectural structures," Abbott said. "Rodney Square is an absolutely beautiful location to work with."
