  1. Sunset Boulevard | June 1

    Comments Off on Sunset Boulevard | June 1

    The Glen Arbor Arts Center’s Glen Arbor Players [formerly Readers’ Theater] head back in time to Hollywood in its next production, “Sunset Boulevard.”

    Performances are June 1 +2 at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church, 4902 W. MacFarlane Road, Burdickville. The performance is free.

    It’s 1950’s Hollywood, and the obscure screenplay writer Joe Gillis is not able to sell his work to the studios, is full of debts and is thinking of returning to his hometown to work in an office. While trying to escape from his creditors, he has a flat tire and parks his car in a decadent mansion on Sunset Boulevard. He meets the owner and former silent-movie star Norma Desmond, and, suddenly, Joe Gillis has something to write about. The GAP script was adapted by the production’s director, Ron Smith, from a 1951 radio broadcast and from the 1950 script used in the Hollywood film.
