In just a little less than a month, the Players will be holding auditions for their next production, It’s a Wonderful Life-A Live Radio Play!! Plan on attending them on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 24 and
25 from 6:30 to 8 pm at the CS United Methodist Church. We need kids 12 and up; men and women of any age. Performances will be at the Kent Theatre on Dec. 8, 9 and 10. It’s a holiday classic recreated live and onstage.
Terri Riggle – Director
The Foreigner opens on October 13th at the Kent Theatre!
Here are some photos that have been taken during rehearsals and the Red Flannel Festival.
The Cedar Springs Community Players are both honoring the past and trying something new with their upcoming production of The Foreigner. The show is being dedicated to Jack Clark, a longtime member, who died earlier this year. The Foreigner was Jack’s favorite show and he would travel all over the state to see productions of it. There will be displays of photographs and stories about Jack’s participation in past productions at the theater. If you have photos or a memory to share, please contact Bob Clifford at email@example.com.
The Players are also offering some fun sponsorship opportunities for their theater patrons. The Foreigner is a play with a single set and there are a number of items that appear on the set or are mentioned in the play – some of them quite humorously. Sponsors will receive special pins that they can wear during the play to show they are an official Croquet Mallet, Carrot, Spoon Rack, etc., sponsor. Sponsorships are as follows:
Sauerkraut – $5
Carrot, Spoon Rack, Candle, Fork, or Lamp – $5
Apples or Fireplace – $5
Croquet Mallets, Harmonica, Suitcase, or Key to Room 7 – $5
Sponsorships can be purchased at the theater on the day of the performance or in advance from a Players member or cast member.
Friends of the Players and the cast and crew can also send well wishes to them in the program for $10 and local businesses can advertise in the program as well. Please contact Bob Clifford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for your help in getting the word out about auditions, however, after two nights, we still do not have a full cast for The Foreigner. Many of the main roles are still open. ( Cast: 4 men 1 teen. 2 women)
So if we want this timely comedy to happen for us and as a tribute for Jack Clark, please ask as many actors, actresses, and technicians to look at their schedules (Performances are Oct 13, 14, 15, 2016) and come tomorrow night – Thursday Aug. 25 – at 6:30 PM at the CS United Methodist Church for a final night of auditions.
Thanks again for your help with OUR show! 🎭
