What happens when summer theater expands into the winter? Everything's upside-down!
Normally, when Endless Mountains Theatre Company holds auditions for its crowd-pleasing shows, the plays are selected in advance. But for EMTC's upcoming winter 2004 productions, there's going to be an exciting inversion of this process.
"We're keeping our options open regarding the choice of play," explains EMTC Chair Bob DeLuca. "We may get some different people going out for theater at this time of year, and once we can assess all the talent at our disposal, we'll be in a great position to pick a play that's just right." Among the plays that the Company is considering are Steel Magnolias (which EMTC presented in 2000), Love Letters, The Nerd, Same Time Next Year, and The Diaries of Adam and Eve.
This winter production will actually be twin productions a weekend of performances at the Carriage Inn in Tunkhannock (weekend of February 15, in conjunction with the Endless Mountains Council of the Arts), followed by a return to Susquehanna County the weekend of March 6, when the same play will be performed at Blue Ridge High School in New Milford. The arrangement with EMCA follows EMTC's successful production of their summer hit "Figments," in Tunkhannock this September.
The New Milford production will serve as a fund-raiser for EMTC's important summer youth program, the Ed Lonzinski Middle/High School Theatre Camp. Like the 3-year-old theater camp, the presentation of winter shows demonstrates how much this community theater group has grown since its inception in 1999.
Open auditions will be held on January 3, 6:30 p.m. at Blue Ridge. Show and casting decisions will be made quickly, and rehearsals will kick off on January 5. EMTC encourages all adults and teens with a dramatic flair to escape the winter doldrums by taking to the stage!
As of January 5, 2004 the Register and Recorders Office in Susquehanna County will begin scanning documents.
To help the public adapt to the new system, the office will be offering training sessions, at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., on January 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12, 2004.
If you are interested in attending, please call Mary Evans at (570) 2784600, ext. 113 or 112.
The public is invited to attend the First Universalist Church of Brooklyn, PA which will be hosting its ninth annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial on January 11, at 6 p.m.
This is the only Dr. King memorial scheduled in Susquehanna County this year. In the past, speakers from many areas within Pennsylvania, and out of state, have paid special attention and tribute to Dr. King. His stirring words at the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963 in Washington, DC brought special attention to the plight of Black Americans who were denied their dignity and their rights. Because of the work of Dr. King and many who walked with him promoting non-violent demonstrations for equal rights, the United States began a new chapter in its history promoting equality for all.
The church has announced Rev. Edna Parker, formerly of the Hartford, Connecticut AME Church, and presently serving as the Senior Pastor of the AME Church in Scranton, will be the guest speaker. Rev. Parker has been located in the Scranton area since December, 2002 and is pleased to share her warm thoughts regarding the slain civil rights activist who was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
There will be special music that evening presented by the AME Gospel Choir, which promises to leave all in attendance with a true appreciation of the stirring hymns they have prepared. Light refreshments will be shared after the service. There is ample parking.
For further information, call Rev. Ralph Christianson at 289-4603.
Harrisburg State Senator Roger A. Madigan (R-23) will host outreach events in January, to give Susquehanna County residents a chance to ask questions or discuss issues concerning state government.
"Constituents are invited to stop by and discuss any problems or questions they might have about state issues or state programs," Madigan said.
The senator said on January 9, a staff member will be available to speak with constituents, from 11 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the Susquehanna County Offices Annex, 31 Public Avenue, Montrose.
They are then available to meet with constituents from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Great Bend/Hallstead Public Library, 201 Franklin Street, Hallstead.
