Sept. 3, 2004 Epiphany Theater Company in St. John is giving residents the opportunity to help fund the theater's 2004-2005 performances.
"We provide entertainment all year long," publicist Carole DeSenne said in urging residents to support the island's only community theater group.
The group will hold a Sept. 10 fund-raiser at Sputnik Restaurant/M&M Donkey Diner in Coral Bay. A Sept. 11 event will be held at the Inn at Tamarind Court in Cruz Bay. Both times are 7 p.m. Drinks will be available from a cash bar.
The events also features raffle prizes, including dinners at the island's restaurants, recreational trips, hotel stays, professional services, works from local artists, and merchandise from the island's shops.
Your $15 donation gets you free munchies as well as two short performances that hark back to the nostalgic days of radio. They incorporate convoluted plots, narration, and special effects.
The first is "Temporarily Humboldt County." This is a short history of an American Indian's search for the "true white brother" promised to him by the "great spirit."
The second is "Cut 'em Off at the Past," which is episode number 666 in the film noir detective Nick Danger series.
"They're done just like a radio show would be done. We make all the noises," DeSenne said.
She said it's all done in front of the audience in the same manner as old radio shows.
The characters are portrayed by Epiphany Theater cast members DeSenne, Michael Beason, Ruthellen Mulberg, Jeff Crokin, Ted Scheer, James Julien, Sandy Stein, and Paul Devine.
Epiphany Theater Company organized in 2000.
