Possum Point Players is seeking directors for two upcoming shows...
The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus
written by Pat Cook is based on the book by L. Frank Baum and will be presented December 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10, 2023.
For those who may have wondered just where Santa Claus came from, L. Frank Baum knew. The same man who created “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” discloses the secret story of Saint Nicholas as told to him by a nymph who actually raised Claus in a world of Faeries and other magical, mystical beings. The true story of why the generous elf decides to live among humans and make toys to make children happy finally comes out. Once and for all, this tale answers how Santa Claus made the first toy, why he climbs down chimneys and, most of all, how he learned to laugh that great “Ho, ho, ho.”
book by George Furth with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Production dates are April 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14, 2024.
From one of musical theatre’s most renowned composers, it is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-day musical genre and was the winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book. A confirmed bachelor spends much of his life surrounded by a rambunctious and well-meaning group of mostly married friends. The pros and cons of marriage are acted out with an energetic score that contains many of Sondheim’s best known songs. It can be told as effectively with a full complement of set pieces as it can with a chair or two.
There are two application forms for potential directors, one for those who have directed for Possum Point Players before, and one for those who would be directing for the Players for the first time.
Anyone wishing to be considered for directing either of these shows, or needing more information can contact Les Ferguson, Director Selection Chair, for application forms and further information, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 845-544-5027.
