CNY Arts Center is staging a reunion of veteran actors Krissy Cook, Beth DeRousie, Bobby Fontana and Dan Williams for a fifth anniversary performance of “John, His Story” at State St. United Methodist Church in Fulton.
The 90 -minute performance will take place Sunday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m.
The play has been performed in area churches around Oswego County since 2007 when it first debuted under the direction of Nancy Fox and Port City Theatre.
“It has proved to be an unexpected delight with audiences every time it is performed,” said Fox, now president of CNY Arts Center. “When they hear the familiar stories of the miracles of Christ brought to life through 25 characters portrayed by only four actors the comments always include pleasant surprise. Performances of the popular play are requested often and it’s wonderful to realize audiences are still asking for the play five years after its debut.
A fire! Oh, no! It might be Lynn and Dennis’ house on fire and somebody might still be in it! The phone call had said as much.
My heart pounded as Ed and I grabbed our coats that bitter cold January day only to quickly realized we couldn’t get anywhere near the raging fire on County Route 85 where they lived because the road would be blocked off.
So we paced the floor and anxiously waited by the phone to hear from somebody — anybody — to let us know what was going on.
Yes indeed folks, Sweet Thing and I will be back in your midst next week.
We have been in the process of shutting things down in Florida and packing everything that has to go home.
As I write this column, we are figuring out how to stow the items in the truck that must make it back north. I have finally gotten to the point that we no longer look like the Beverly Hillbillies once we are ready to leave. We have Florida things and Fulton things and each pretty much stays put
When packing for the journey, the dog and cat are givens, and so is my computer, but thank goodness Sweet Thing bought me a lap top for our 50th anniversary, so packing my computer is now a snap and takes up almost no space.
The Oswego County district attorney has been asked to investigate how an ethics complaint filed against a legislator was leaked to the press. Now, the district attorney will be asked to investigate a second leak in the same matter.
Legislator Shawn Doyle said he was taken by surprise when a news reporter telephoned him to request an interview in regard to the dismissal of the charges.
At the time of the call, few people were in possession of the dismissal and Doyle had yet to review the ethics board decision with his attorney.
