PORT McNEILL-Gate House Players plot April performance of original piece, Revenge of Smee

PORT McNEILL—After a brief delay, the Gate House Players are back on track for a production of the original musical, the Revenge of Smee, the last week of April at Gate House Community Theatre.

Originally planned for the fall of 2014, the imagined sequel to Peter Pan is now ramping up for rehearsals, and support roles are still available in production, set design and construction, lights, sound and special effects, assistant director, stage manager, musical director and musicians, choreographer, promotion and front counter.

This will be the second original production performed at the theatre, following three showings of The Coffee Clutch in 2013.

Gate House Community Society founder Terry Eissfeldt invites all North Islanders interested in community theatre to take part. She added the society is also looking to update the theatre’s stage, sound and lights — as funding and volunteers allow.

Meanwhile, the theatre continues to show pre-release feature movies each Friday evening and some Saturdays. To check the show lineup or learn more, visit the society’s blog at gatehouseca.org or Gate House Community Association on Facebook.
