The basement apartment has been built. The lines have been memorized. Possum Point Players’ production of the comedy "The Psychic" by Sam Bobrick is coming together as opening night, Friday, Jan. 25, nears.

"The Psychic," directed by Patrick Erhardt of Seaford, is being performed at 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Jan. 25 and 26 and Feb. 1 and 2, and at 2 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 27 and Feb. 3 at Possum Hall in Georgetown.  Tickets are $18 for adults, and $17 for students and seniors. Tickets are on sale at and also by phone at 302-856-4560.

In the show, Adam Webster (played by Steven Dow of Milford), a down-on-his-luck writer, puts a sign in his apartment window in desperation to make the rent: "Psychic Readings $25." Of course, Adam isn’t a psychic - or is he? As more and more of his “premonitions” seem to be true, there’s no telling where the hilarity will end!

The animated characters who visit Adam include the lovely and conflicted Laura Benson (played by Judy Venturini of Lewes); her shady husband Roy (played by John Zinzi of Harrington); Roy's mistress, Rita Malone (played by Kim Klabe of Rehoboth Beach); a gangster named Johnny Bubbles (played by Sam Vasquez of Bridgeville); and ace detective Norris Coslow (played by Jim Killion of Lewes).

"The Psychic" is being produced through special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

Possum Point Players is supported, in part, by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
