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.
