Winds of Change hit­ting the stage

Queens County the­atre group presents Hon­ey­moon at Grave­side Manor

It is Hal­loween night and Mar­ian Thorn­craft is look­ing for­ward to her hon­ey­moon with her new hus­band, Tyler. She pic­tures some­where ro­man­tic, and gets a sur­prise when she dis­cov­ers that her des­ti­na­tion is ac­tu­ally a one-time mor­tu­ary known as Grave­side Manor.

So goes the sto­ry­line of Hon­ey­moon at Grave­side Manor, which will be pre­sented this Novem­ber by the Winds of Change Dra­matic So­ci­ety at the As­tor The­atre in Liver­pool.

This ghostly farce is a pro­duc­tion put on by lo­cal thes­pi­ans, where no one per­son is the star of the show, says Sue Beau­mon­trud­der­ham, the show’s pro­ducer.

The Winds of Change, an amateur the­atre so­ci­ety based in Liver­pool, was formed 40 years ago as a way to sup­port not only lo­cal ac­tors, but also new lo­cal play­wrights, di­rec­tors, and pro­duc­ers.

Ac­cord­ing to An­nette Burke, pres­i­dent of the Winds of Change Dra­matic So­ci­ety, the group tries to stage two pro­duc­tions each year, prefer­ably one drama/com­edy and one mu­si­cal.

The best part of the show, says Beau­mont-rud­der­ham, is work­ing with a team of ded­i­cated peo­ple who strive for ex­cel­lence and of course, see­ing the end prod­uct.

This fall’s pro­duc­tion, Hon­ey­moon at Grave­side Manor, takes place at the As­tor The­atre in Liver­pool from Nov. 23-26 at 8 p.m. Tick­ets are $20 for gen­eral ad­mis­sion and $15 for stu­dents. Ac­cord­ing to Beau­mont-rud­der­ham, the show is ap­pro­pri­ate for any­one over the age of five.

If a show with a dis­ap­pear­ing maid, a hatchet wield­ing ghost, three high school kids work­ing up a party prank, an ab­sent-minded cop, and an es­caped lu­natic sounds ap­peal­ing, make sure you catch the per­for­mance of Hon­ey­moon at Grave­side Manor.
