Holiday spirits of celebration persist as Possum Point Players prepare a musical revue, called Sweet Sounds of the Season, to open Friday, Dec. 4.
Directed by Kenney Workman with Music Director Stacey Hartman, show dates are Friday to Sunday, Dec. 4 to 6, and 11 to 13. Friday and Saturday evening shows are at 7:30 p.m, and matinees are scheduled at 2 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays. Following COVID-19 protocols for seat spacing of audience members results in fewer available seats and smaller audiences for each performance. The players added Saturday matinees to ensure that more people can enjoy the show.
Workman said, “Bright lights, decorated trees, colorful packages are all part of the season, but we think that nothing spreads the feelings and tells the stories of Christmas like music. Even in a stressful year of disease and unease, the Possums take great pleasure in sharing warmth, love and open hearts with Sweet Sounds of the Season, a revue of Christmas and holiday music.”
The cast for Sweet Sounds of the Season combines a wide range of ages and experiences, but most are familiar faces and voices at Possum Hall. Included in those appearing are Alonzo Dixon, Bridgeville; Steven Dow, Felton; Steve Givens, John Hulse and Morgan Whittam, Rehoboth Beach; Andrew Hertzberg, Milton; and Devon Lynch, Georgetown. Also in the cast are Beth Howlett and Ashlie Workman, Millsboro; Shayla Macklin, Seaford; Julianna Markel, Smyrna; Abbie Porter, Laurel; Sarah Rose, Lewes, and Missy Spangler, Milford.
