Christmas moose still performing at Chief Theater this weekend

-A A +A

Players hold auditions for Phantom on Saturday

By The Staff

Suwannee Valley Players announces the second weekend of its production of “Not a Creature Was Stirring ... not even a moose,” a comedy written by Pat Cook.

Only four chances are left to see this heart warming Christmas play.  Editor JJ Garnes of the Herald Tribune makes sure to use the holiday to his own advantage, whether it be to expose a crooked mayor or sell a few more issues with just the right angle. And he thinks he finds it when he finds a letter from a small boy who "don't want no more Christmases." Delilah and Sarah, his assistants are equally cynical until they find a "Wish Moose", a Christmas ornament that grants their wishes. Do they believe? It is up to Barney, the janitor, to show them how to develop the Christmas Spirit.

Wishes do begin to come true - with hilarious consequences.

The cast will be performing again on Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 for students in grades pre-kindergartern through 12th and seniors, age 65 and up; $10 for general admission; and free to children under age 3.

All shows are at the Chief Theater, 25 E. Park Ave. Chiefland.

Players hold auditions

 for Phantom

Suwannee Valley Players announce auditions for the spring musical “Phantom of the Op'ry,” a musical stage show from Skunk Creek, Nev.

This is a musical re-staging of Gaston Leroux's famous mystery. No heavy stuff, just fun aplenty as the Phantom in this country version laughingly makes a star of "too good to be true" Christine Swansong.

The show features eleven musical show stoppers; lots of suspense and action with the music; "dead" bodies fly across the stage, a chandelier "drops" on the audience, the mysterious phantom disappears and reappears.

Auditions will be Saturday, Dec. 12 at 10 a.m. and Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Chief Theatre.

Show dates are March 4, 5, and 6, 2010 at 8 p.m.,  March 7 at 2:30 p.m., and March 12 and 13 at 8 p.m., and March 14 at 2:30 p.m.

The show will be directed by Susan Lastra, president of the Suwannee Valley Players.
