Local musicians hold concert to benefit Action Inc.

By Gail McCarthy
Gloucester Daily Times Staff Writer

A night of music will take place Saturday at Gloucester Stage Company to benefit Action Inc., the local anti-poverty agency which helps a range of residents from the homeless to the elderly.

Singer-songwriter James White, a native of England who is a long-time resident here, organized the benefit for Action.

There will be a rich assortment of local musicians, he said.

The line-up includes a solo performance by Chris Lyman on aquaphone, and two bands, James White and Friends, which features Hal Hirshon, and Chris Armstrong.

Dr. Thomas Pearce, a local physician also known as “Dr. Tom,” will perform on bass with Armstrong, a local singer-songwriter and artist.

“Action is providing what is a really good service, helping the homeless, feeding people, educating people and taking care of people. If you’re going to have a benefit in this current time, we want to help those who are hit the hardest, and we want to do what we can to help out,” said White.

Lisa Doucett, of Action, said the organization is appreciative to the musicians who wanted to volunteer their time for the concert.

“We’re grateful that they thought of us and made us the recipient,” said Doucett. “We’re happy and we hope people turn out for it. It should be a fun time.”

The concert takes place Saturday at Gloucester Stage, 267 East Main St. at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Attention- Casting Call For Gorton’s Commercial This Saturday!

Gorton’s is pleased to announce that it will be shooting new TV commercials right here in Gloucester next month. In preparation for the shoot, Maura Tighe Casting will be holding an open casting call for extras this Saturday October 17. They’ll be looking for residents of Gloucester and surrounding towns (Rockport, Essex, Manchester by the Sea, etc.) to be extras in the commercials. They’re looking for people of all ages, from kids to older folks to everything in between – Moms and Dads, fishermen, teachers, doctors, chefs, grandpas, you name it! You don’t have to prepare anything or do anything special. Just come by and tell the casting agency a little about yourself and what you love about where you live. (And they’ll put you on tape when you are talking to them so they can remember who you are.) The open casting call is on Saturday October 17 from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Blackburn Performing Arts Center, located at 1 Washington Street (the corner of Main St. and Washington St) in Gloucester. The agency will take a picture of you when you get there, so don’t worry about bringing a picture. Just bring yourself (and a friend if you like). For more information regarding the open casting call, you can email Maura Tighe Casting at info@mauratighe.com. You may also see people from the production company around town over the next month preparing for the shoot and continuing to be on the lookout for potential extras.
