  1. The Diaries of Adam and Eve | Glen Arbor Players

    Comments Off on The Diaries of Adam and Eve | Glen Arbor Players

    The Glen Arbor Players [GAP] perform “The Diaries and Adam and Eve,” an adaptation of two Mark Twain stories about a couple in Paradise. The performance is July 27 + 28, 7:30 pm at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church, 4902 W. MacFarlane Road, Glen Arbor.

    GAP regular Ron Smith wears many hats in this production. He adapted the work, directs and performs in it with Janet Stipicevich. “Diaries” is a witty, charming work in which Mark Twain retells the Garden of Eden story in the first person, presenting the separate perspectives in diary form of the legendary father and mother of the human race. Adam is a grouchy couch potato, Eve is a talkative, curious experimenter. Brief appearance by other familiar, Biblical figures, too.

    “The Diaries of Adam and Eve” is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. GAP is a project of the Glen Arbor Arts Center. For more information go to GlenArborArt.org

    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.
