Second Set Build Day for 'Woolf' on Oct 7

Posted: Sunday, October 1, 2017, 1:57pm

Rome was not built in a day, and neither will be the set for the Curtain Players staging of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

A second Set Build Saturday has been announced for October 7 to allow volunteers to complete finishing work on and to paint the set for the community theatre company’s next production opening October 20. Director Michael Day designed the set. Neil Aring is construction supervisor.

Work is to begin at 9 AM and continue into the mid to late afternoon. Volunteers are welcome for all or part of the day. The theatre provides pizza for lunch.

Booth Muller, the theatre’s technical director, said volunteers should bring along drills with #2 Phillips bits if they have them, and should wear painting clothes. No experience or equipment is required for participation.

To best plan for an efficient work day, volunteers are asked to register by contacting Muller, at tech.director@curtainplayers.org

Questions about Set Build Saturday may be directed to Muller at that address.

Edward Albee's Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? plays at 8 PM Fridays and Saturdays October 20-21, 27-28, and November 3-4, with 2 o’clock matinees Sundays October 29 and November 5. Tickets are on sale now. Click here to order. Patrons are advised that Virginia Woolf is recommended for adult audiences because of its mature themes and strong language.

In Albee’s award-winning iconic play, a middle-aged college professor and his wife invite into their home an unwitting younger couple for drinks after a late-night faculty party. The resulting evening is a wicked jumble of mind games, attempted seductions, and shattering revelations.
