Possum Point Players Fundraiser Takes You Back Stage At The Oscars
All the nominations are announced and tension mounts; for a sneak peek at the real scene at the Academy Awards presentation, join Possum Point Players for Let It Go: A Night at the Oscars Saturday, February 23. The evening features entertainment, food and drink and a live auction of exclusive items; tickets are limited, $80 or $150 a couple, and can be purchased at 302-856-4560 or www.possumpointplayers.org.
Set just a day before the televised evening of Oscar presentations, Let It Go celebrates Oscar-winning music with an original revue that takes you backstage as well as front row center to hear some of your favorite stars croon song winners as recent as Let It Go and as memorable as White Christmas. Possums' Night at the Oscars kicks off at 6:30 with a stroll down the red carpet and a hearty helping of hors d'oeuvres and even a complementary cocktail or two.
Whether you are in black tie or black goth, be prepared to smile for the paparazzi and maybe pose with a larger than life Oscar himself. Remember, Bjork swanned about in feathers and Gaga wore metallic Versace; dress as you please while exercising a little decorum and modesty. Included in this wonderful evening will be a live auction of terrific high value items! Get set to bid on offerings such as a resort vacation location, designer accessories, jewelry and a one of a kind handmade collector's item quilt.
Let It Go was created and directed by Donna de Kuyper of Lewes and Doug Yetter of Rehoboth Beach. Yetter is also music director. Cast members of the revue include Claudius Bowden, Georgetown, Max Dick and John Hulse, Rehoboth Beach, and Dulcena Kemmerlin and Lorraine Steinhoff, Milford. Also appearing are Dawn Conaway, Seaford, Kyra Cutsail, Laurel, Alonzo Dixon, Bridgeville, Val Harmon, Millsboro, and John Zinzi, Milton.
Georgetown residents Jim Hartzell and Don Megee are Oscar night hosts.
