Senior College Players are in dress rehearsals this week as they gear up for their performance on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18 at 7 pm at the Gould Academy Trustees Auditorium.

Be prepared for an evening of fun and laughter as the Players delight you with six one-act comedies. Jack Kuchta, facilitator, said this year’s plays illustrate how we gain maturity as we age. "Wisdom and sensibility is a natural product of growing older. Thus, this year’s performance is entitled, ‘Antiques are old, and I’m Mature’."

Three comedies by AnnetteTrigham take place at the Chatterton Country Club, a 55+ retirement community. They include: “It’s Your Move,” with Jim McLean and Bill Schuellein; “With Friends like You,” featuring Pat McCartney and Barb Dion; and “If You Can’t Beat ‘Em,” with Lorrie Hoeh, Rosabelle Tifft, Eunice Ruby and Marianne Goff. Tineke Ouwinga, the office administrator, tries to keep order.

Three remaining comedies include: “Kindness of Strangers,” by Jim Gordon, featuring Lorrie Hoeh; “Coconut Crème Pie,” by John Clifford, with Tim LeConey and Barb Dion; and “Dinner Plans,” by Vicki Bartholomew, featuring Pat McCartney, Mariann Goff, Barb Dion, Lorrie Hoeh, and Eunice Ruby.

Summaries of these plays were in the past two blogs: Oct 31 and Nov 6

Western Mountains Senior College offers Senior College Players as a course, open to anyone age 50 and over. Now in its eleventh year, many players are veteran thespians who have been with the troupe for several years and are able to assist in production. Admission to the performance is free. However, donations will be appreciated to offset royalties. Refreshments will be available at intermission. Make plans to join us for a fun-filled evening.
