PPP presents A NIGHT AT THE OSCARS...
LET IT GO
Georgetown, DE – February 18, 2019 - It’s countdown time for Academy Awards and for “Night at the Oscars” fundraiser at Possum Hall. With a look backstage and under the stage lights of Oscar night, Possum Point Players’ share their idea of what the scene at the Academy Awards is really like. “A Night at the Oscars: Let It Go” is set to take the stage Saturday, February 23. The evening features entertainment, food and drink and a live auction of exclusive items; tickets are limited, $80 for an individual or $150 a couple, and can be purchased at 302-856-4560 or www.possumpointplayers.org.
“Let It Go” celebrates Oscar-winning music and includes songs such as “My Heart Will Go On,” “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “Moon River,” “The Way We Were” and “Beauty and the Beast.” The music choices and script creation came from a collaboration by well-known area theatre personalities Donna de Kuyper and Doug Yetter… Or is it Yetter and de Kuyper? Even they can’t agree. The two are co-directors and Yetter is the music director.
After writing themselves in as longstanding also-rans in the winning song category, the duo assembled a cast that includes Claudius Bowden, Max Dick, Cheryl Graves, John Hulse, Dulcena Kemmerlin and Lorraine Steinhoff. Also appearing are Dawn Conaway, Kyra Cutsail, Alonzo Dixon, Val Harmon and John Zinzi. Jim Hartzell and Don Megee serve as dapper hosts for the night of Oscar presentations. The show switches back and forth from backstage bickering of de Kuyper and Yetter characters to the hosts keeping the songs coming with the talented cast.
Possums’ “Night at the Oscars” begins at 6:30 p.m. with heavy hors d’oeuvres and complementary cocktails which can be enjoyed after the paparazzi greets everyone entering on the red carpet. Dress is black tie optional and all are encouraged to be comfortable and as imaginative or as understated as the mood strikes them. Following happy hour of meeting and greeting, audience members are invited to refill their beverages and settle in the theatre for a selection of Oscar winning songs that range from decades ago to those from recent years.
Before leaving their seats to share champagne and dessert with the cast, audience members will have a chance to pick up some exclusive items in a live auction. Among items to be bid on are a week in a resort vacation location, a painting by area artist Kim Klabe, a collection of potables from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, designer accessories, Baltimore Ravens’ game tickets and a one of a kind handmade collector’s item quilt. A generous member is donating two season tickets for ten years of Possum Point Players’ productions. The list of live auction items is not long, so audience members have a chance to move quickly and score a treasure.
Complimentary champagne and dessert and visiting with the cast will provide a sweet close to a sumptuous evening.
