On Borrowed Time enters second weekend

The second weekend of the Oswego Players latest show, “On Borrowed Time,” directed by Richard Mosher will begin at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22.

There will be two other chances to catch this production – 8 p.m. Saturday Nov. 23 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24.

Paul Osborne adapted the Broadway play version from the novel by Lawrence Edward Watkin.

Joannie Anderson, who plays Marsha, is a recent graduate of SUNY Oswego, concentrating on the study of musical theatre. This is her third show with the Players, having had roles in last summer’s successful “Mame” and the Woody Allen comedy, “Don’t Drink the Water” in September.

Anderson is trained in voice as a mezzo, and has experience with jazz and modern dance. In her spare time she enjoys drawing, dancing and studying the Japanese language and culture.

She is interested in a wide array of things, including film theory, classical theatre, folklore, and sociology.

Norman Berlin, III, requires no introduction to Oswego audiences. He joined the Players in 2003 as a young lad, and has participated in nearly every production since that time in some way, shape or form.

“Normie,” as he is affectionately known, is currently a junior at SUNY Oswego, majoring in history and museum studies. His most recent on-stage roles were Sheldon Marcus in “The Best Man” and as Junior Babcock in “Mame.”

Berlin has a passion for theater and is always willing to fill in wherever needed on or back stage. He enjoys giving back to the community and plans to continue with the Oswego Players for many years to come.

Other cast members are Anne Raynor, Wayne Mosher, Peter Mahan, Matthew Oldenburg, Beverly Murtha, Jim Oldenburg, Michael Moss, Kyle Walton, Jonathan C. Altman, Troy Pepper, Zach Dumott and Tippy (Betty the Dog).

Location is the Francis Marion Brown Theatre in the Oswego Arts Center at Fort Ontario. Ticket prices are $10/adults; $8/seniors and $7/students.

Reservations are advised and can be made through the Box Office at 343.5138.  Check the Oswego Players website at www.oswegoplayers.org for additional information.
