Nine Start 'Virginia Woolf' Set Build

Posted: Wednesday, October 4, 2017, 5:25pm

Curtain Players recognizes the Set Build Saturday volunteers who began constructing the set for the community theatre company’s upcoming staging of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Set construction supervisor Neil Aring, along with Curtain Players technical director Booth Muller, led the September 30 event at the Harlem Road playhouse. Volunteers participated in a full day of building and painting, along with camaraderie and a free pizza lunch.

The day’s crew included Jeff Cramlet, Denise Dumouchelle, Jack Halada, Jan Halada, Carol Jakubczak, and Alice Young. Set work continued this week with Rob Cooperman joining the roster of volunteers.

A second Set Build Saturday is scheduled for October 7 to address finish work and to paint the set. Work will begin at 9 AM. All volunteers are welcome regardless of experience. To make for the most efficient work day, volunteers are asked to register with Muller at tech.director@curtainplayers.org

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opens its eight-performance run Friday October 20. Tickets are on sale now. Click here to order. Patrons are advised that Virginia Woolf is recommended for mature audiences because of adult themes and language.

Michael Day directs this Curtain Players production. He is also set designer.
