Shore Players, theater program, has announced its 2011-2012 season.
The original comedy, Grandma's Getting Married, opens up the season, while the Irving Berlin classic, Annie Get Your Gun, is set to be the spring musical. To conclude its season, Shore Players will be hosting an Alumni Cabaret featuring former Shore Players from the past 50 years entitled, Celebrating 50 Years of Shore Players.
Grandma's Getting Married will be the first non-musical performed by Shore players in almost 30 years.
The play, an original comedy by Dennis Driskill, is the story of a widow who is persuaded by her two daughters to go on a singles cruise. When mom comes back in love, the family is happy, until they discover that the guy may just be a rock star who is half her age. The plot thickens when the family attempts to sabotage the relationship, and a series of misunderstandings transpires.
Annie Get Your Gun is set for the spring musical and tells the love story of sharpshooters. The musical features classic tunes such as There's No Business Like Show Business and Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better.
Celebrating 50 Years of Shore Players will feature an evening of Shore Players alumni including some who have made a name for themselves on larger stages. It will also have medleys from years gone by, group numbers and featured soloists from Shore Players.
The group is still looking to reach out to all alumni of Shore Players for the 50th anniversary show. Those interested in being a part of the celebration, whether it is behind the scenes or performing on stage, should contact Assistant Director Jay Giberson, at Shoreplayers@shoreregional.org.
