Possum Juniors, the youth affiliate of Possum Point Players, will take on the task of creating an original production for its annual summer show this year.
An initial interest and information meeting is set for 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 6, in Possum Hall, 441 Old Laurel Road, Georgetown. The meeting is open to all area young people in sixth to 12th grades who are members or wish to become members of Possum Juniors.
Officers and advisors of Possum Juniors will be present. Seating will be appropriately distanced and masks will be worn.
In previous years, Possum Juniors summer productions have included "Annie," "The Addams Family," "Bus Stop" and "The Jungle Book."
After a year like no other, for summer 2021, Possum Juniors announce a production like no other, "Experiment: A Work In Progress,” a project that will lead to the summer show. To carry out all aspects of a full-scale, original production, Possum Juniors are seeking any and all creative minds to join the effort.
Possum Juniors invites participation and input from all area youth who are interested and willing to take on project responsibilities including actors, writers, dancers, artists, musicians, set design and construction, and technical crews.
Gianna Voges, project coordinator, said, "We welcome those who are in grades six through 12 to help us produce a show entirely from scratch. We will be holding an interest meeting Tuesday, April 6 at 6 p.m. at Possum Point Players. We will go over what this project is and how you can be a part of it."
Voges said those unable to make the meeting in person will be able to join over Zoom. Those who can't participate either way can request an interest form to fill out by emailing email@example.com. The Possum Juniors would like to hear from all who are interested in joining and helping with this experiment.
Possum Point Players values diversity and inclusion in casting, and in all other areas of the organization.
