Dear Friends of NPTG, Spring is finally here! New Players Theatre Guild ushered it in with our vibrant and thought-provoking production of The Secret Garden at the end of March. We have heard so many wonderful comments about the music, voices, moving scenery, and look of the show. Thank you to all who came to watch our garden “unfold”!
But now we are on to other things! On Saturday, April 26, Sunday, April 27, Saturday May3 and Sunday, May 4 NPTG will hold a Spring Garden Fundraiser at our 15 Rollstone Street building from 9AM-1PM each of the days. We’ll be selling top quality factory over stock and slightly blemished items at below wholesale prices. Items for sale include (among other things) benches, arbors, trellises, bird feeders, wrought iron fire place items, floor mats, etc. The products are being supplied by Minuteman/Achla Design. They are the sponsors of Fitchburg’s Blacksmith Art and Music Festival. Google Achla Designs or Minuteman International to get an idea of the types of items that will be available. Don’t miss the opportunity to get some quality merchandise at discounted prices!
Coming up next are two one act plays written by Kevin Baldwin of Worcester. Kevin was introduced to New Players Theatre Guild when he applied to direct our production of Harvey last year. Since then he has also directed The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged in February and is presently in production with two of his own one-act plays - Running of he Brides about five engaged women talking about their men, their hopes and their visions as they wait for a store to open, and Bottom of the Ninth, a play dealing with Alzheimers Disease. Both will be presented on May 10 at 7:30PM and May 11 at 2:00PM. Stay after the performance and meet with Kevin to ask the play writer’s question: “What were you thinking!?!” Or perhaps you have play writing tendencies yourself and Kevin may have some helpful advice that will move you forward in your own quest to be published. Whichever it is, come ask some questions and Kevin will accommodate with some answers.
Following closely on the heels of Mr. Baldwin’s one-act plays is a completely different theatrical event - the presentation of Cosi Fan Tutte or How I Met Your Mother on the new Players Theatre Guild stage, performed by members of the Greater Worcester Opera. This will be a costumed concert version in English with Elaine Crane (Lily in Secret Garden), and Sammy O’Neil (Mary in Secret Garden) returning to our stage.
Tickets for the two one-act plays and Cosi Fan Tutte can be reserved by calling 978-345-6570 or purchased online at nptg.org.
