Program Notes

James Huneker, for years drama critic for the defunct New York Sun, after reading the last act of Candida growled, “You grind your teeth over it, as Mr. Shaw peeps across the top of the page, indulging in one of his irritating dental displays,” We wish your dentures no harm, but we do hope to arouse such a feeling tonight. This is the fondest dream of the Community Theater, to create an experience the audience must take home. We’re not professionals -though we have had and will have highly professional performances – we must try to reach our goal with enthusiasm, patience, and most of all a love of theatre. Many of you share our dream – We wish you would include your time, energy, talents, and ideas by joining our group.

Before the weather forces us to leave this barn for which we have so much affection, one lore play is scheduled. It’s “The Pot Boiler,” a free one-act curtain raiser, directed by Harold Brown and appearing September 25 and 26.

The first play of the indoor season will be a mystery (to be announced), directed by Marvin Katz. It’s scheduled for the Junior
High School, October 30 and 31. This will be followed by three more plays, dates will be announced after September 1.

Anyone will be wishing to be put on the mailing list or to become a member may sign up at the refreshment table during intermission or call JoAnn Yorks, ADams 8-9527.

The Highly successful Festival of Foreign Films, here in the Barn, has three more films coming up. They are “Genevieve” (in English – a comedy about antique cars), “Stairway to Heaven” (in English – a W.W.II fantasy film), “The Sheep Has 5 Legs” (in French with subtitles – a comedy with 5 Fernandel’s). Because of the popularity of these showings, the group is making plans for a winter series.
