AVP MAKES A FABULOUS SPLASH WITH “SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN”

Bravo and a standing ovation to the entire cast and crew of AVP”s “Singin in the Rain!!!” Don’t miss this wonderful romantic musical comedy playing Tuesday through Sunday at the Annisquam Village Hall.

“Singin’ in the Rain” is adapted from the 1952 movie of the same name. Set in Hollywood during the late 1920s, the musical tells the story of romantic leading man Don Lockwood, his best friend Cosmo Brown, struggling actress Kathy Seldon, and Lockwood’s leading lady Lina Lamont, whose hilarious voice makes her an unlikely candidate to star in talking films.

The Annisquam Village Players have once again outdone themselves with a fantastic cast of local talent, stellar directing, musical orchestration, choreography, sets, costumes, and lighting. New this year are Rick Blue’s filmed “talkies,” charmingly telling the story of the end of silent films and the coming era of talking pictures.

A witty and zany comedy, the play is perfectly cast. Leads Rockport High School senior Ben Fuller (Lockwood) and Gloucester resident and recent Pingree School graduate Andrew Murdock (Cosmo Brown) are a dynamic comic duo, with exceptional singing and dancing chops. The lovely Emily Whalen (Kathy Seldon), also a recent Pingree School graduate, sings and dances her way into Lockwood’s heart. She is the perfect antidote to Lina Lamont, the brash and villainous diva played by Victoria Fortune.

Behind the scenes star John Hentschel

It was wonderful to see old friends Mary and Jaye, and set designer Chicki with John and Jolene Hentschel.

Tickets may be purchased on line at annisquamvillageplayers.org or at the Annisquam Exchange.

GLOUCESTER’S HANNA ANDERSON AND MASK RENASCENCE

The mask that Mayor Sefatia wore at the International Women’s Day celebration was created especially for her by Gloucester’s own Hanna Anderson. Hanna was the costume designer for the Annisquam Village Player’s Peter Pan. The Mayor was so proud to show off her beautiful mask. Usually kept in a protected place at her home, she was thrilled to have the opportunity to wear it once again. The Mayor wanted to be sure to give Hanna a huge shout out for her exquisite design.

Since designing costumes for AVP’s Peter Pan, Hanna is still involved in the theatre arts however, she is now performing and designing her own costumes. She is an aerial silk performer working in San Diego. Michelle Barclay, Hanna’s Mom, sent along these photos.

IceVelvet- Steve Rich http://www.twinlightscoffee.com/

In 2005 Steve met Amy, who had just recently moved back from Portland, the coffee mecca of the US. Coffee quickly became a hot topic between the two of them. When they married two years later and found out they were having twins, the idea for Twin Lights Coffee was born. They bought the domain name and then and there – a dream for someday.

Fast forward 8 years – Steven still, crazy about coffee: the craft, the process and the product. He perfected a small batch cold brew recipe at home – rich, tasty and so smooth it went down like ice velvet. He was so excited with the results, he mentioned it at his workout class, more than a few times — until one day his friends said, “Well, bring it in!”

HATS OFF to the Annisquam Village Players for a Spectacular Peter Pan

Sofia Gadbois, Elliot Davis, Jared Gilman, and Charlie Rousmaniere

A huge shout out to co-directors Terry Sands and Mary Curtis and the outstanding cast and crew of the Annisquam Village Players for once again creating a fabulously wonderful summer theatre event. The cast is stellar, the production flawless, and every act left you wondering, how can they top that! The children in the audience were especially mesmerized, rooting audibly for Peter Pan (played by the tremendously talented Elliot Davis), and grumbling loudly at the villainous and hilarious Captain Hook (featuring Rick Gadbois). Three Cheers and a Standing Ovation for All!!!

It was a joy to see families working together both behind the scenes and performing on stage, including the funny, fun, and talented Rousmaniere’s Will, Charlie, Julia, and Jack (Dana, when will we see you on stage?); the always entertaining Rick Gadbois with his beautiful and accomplished daughter Sofia (what stage presence!); and the charming Think Pink Flamingo, Lidi Sands, with her adorable son, Baby Rabbit Alex Sands.

With an extra special shout out to Terry and Mary for their superb direction and casting, Krisitna for her beautiful choral direction, to Chicki and her crew for yet another year of ingenious sets, to Deej Viau for brilliant choreography, and to Cem Uslu and orchestra for exquisite music. And with a special note of appreciation to Linette and her helpers for their always kind assistance to all.

An extra, extra shout out goes to costume designer Hanna Anderson and the very adroit costume committee for their utterly fantastic ensembles. Every costume was pitch perfect and beautifully executed. Hanna grew up in Annisqaum and now lives in Boston. She is only 21 years old. We’ll be saying—we knew her when…

And, to AVP’s newest stage manager, GREAT JOB Deb Michel!
