Pontine Theatre At Chichester Library
For the third year
running, the Chichester Library is pleased to sponsor the Pontine
Theatre’s New England Christmas. This year’s presentation is
scheduled for January 7th at 7 p.m. at the Grange Hall, 54 Main
Street in Chichester. The production is an adaptation of Frank
Stockton’s 1895 Christmas story, Captain Eli’s Best Ear.
Cap’n Eli Bunker, a
retired sea captain and lonely widower, is inspired to try his hand
at celebrating Christmas once again. After much thought, he talks
with his friend and neighbor, Cap’n Cephas Dyer, to determine how to
bring about a fitting holiday event. An orphan girl and Mrs.
Trimmer, whose husband “sailed away in a schooner and never
returned,” fill out the cast of this charming tale.
The characters are played
by a cast of beautifully crafted bunraku-style puppets created by
Pontine Co-Director, Greg Gathers. The production is performed by
Pontine Theatre’s Marguerite Mathews and Greg Gathers. All who have
attended in the past two years have truly enjoyed the puppeteering,
puppets and scenery. Join us for some mid-winter fun.
