“Eat Your Heart Out”

Director Mike Hobson is readying his cast for the Players’ late March production of Eat Your Heart Out. The show will run March 24, 25, 31 and April 1 at 7:30pm and on April 2 at 2:00pm.

The show tells the story of Charlie, played by newcomer Jonathan Flower, an out of work actor currently working as a waiter. The scene is a series of hilarious encounters in Manhattan restaurants both elegant and shabby. By changing the tablecloths in the course of the action, the basic setting of three tables and six chairs becomes another place. The action is uninterrupted and the comedy never stops. The other performers play several parts - the girl (Alex Keyes) desperately trying to eat snails and oysters to please her fiancÚ (Tony Pfaff), the middle aged lovers (Mike Towle and Vicki Watson) so intent on each other that they cannot order dinner; the rich, embittered astrologer; the timid man who never gets a waiter; the agents, directors, actors, and waiters; an amusing gallery of characters whose stories intertwine and finally involve Charlie.

The show is directed by Mike Hobson, and produced by Jon Martin. Margot Keyes is stage manager, assisted by Richard Hackman as stagehand. Carole Neveux is costuming the show, and Justin Hartley will be handling lights and sound. Mary Sartwell is props manager and publicist. Tickets for the show, which are $15 per person, are on sale now and will be able to be purchased by clicking on the "Buy Tickets"  button, or by calling 435-8852 and leaving a message.

DEADLY IMAGE In Rehearsal

 Director Carole Neveux held auditions for The Players’ spring show, Deadly Image, on Monday and Tuesday, March 6 and 7, at 7 pm both evenings. The murder mystery will run at the Scenic Theatre May 5, 6 and 7. Carole needs to cast 5 men and 9 women in various roles.

The plot involves powerful billionaire industrialist Wentworth Jefferson, who fears for his life. When he phones private investigator Joey Reynolds, he’s in for a shock: Joey is not, as he assumed, a man, but a female detective—and what a female! Joey. Short for Jo Ellen, is a smart, attractive and self-assured young woman who is good at her work, and proud of it. Jefferson invites her to a party at his mansion where she meets, and secretly photographs, the people in Wentworth’s life whom he suspects might wish to see him dead.

Frozen for a moment, as if caught on film, we meet the suspects: his flighty wife, Mamie; her children, playboy Sam Kane and sculptress daughter, Selena; his bitter ex-wife, Julia Jefferson; society columnist Felicia Phillips, whom he once jilted; Debra Mason, his spinster-ish personal assistant; and a senior executive in his firm, Paul Carter, and his genteel southern wife, Mary Jane. Also present are a trio of servants who are not fond of their employer. Before the evening is over, one of those present kills Jefferson. But which one? Joey, along with police detective Al Reynolds, her ex-husband, use her photos to uncover an important clue to solve the murder.
