County FM’s “In The Loop” Update
Although we’re still waiting to hear back from the CRTC re approval of our license application (hope to hear very soon!); we wanted to check in and let you know, it’s been “business as usual” for us, The Board, and we’ve been busy scouting locations for our studio space and making plans for further fundraising efforts.
On that note, we have been given a very generous offer from Prince Edward County Community Theatre re donating proceeds of their 50/50 Draws from their one-act plays being held on Sunday, Nov 18 & Sun Nov 25 to County FM!
Prince Edward Community Theatre will be donating proceeds of their 50/50 draws being held on Sun Nov 18 & Sun Nov 25 during their one-act play “2 Across” to County FM!
“2 Across” by Jerry Mayer, a romantic comedy about two people who couldn’t be less alike but who discover a common longing during an 80 minute commuter train ride, played in real time without intermission. Mayer uses the crossword puzzle conceit to draw these two people into an exchange of confidences about their lives & the direction they seek to follow. Opposites can attract, the play suggests, and despite their difference, these former strangers come together in a shared hope of friendship, perhaps even love. Founder Lynn Fennell shares the stage with Cheryl Singer who has performed with the group since season 2. Two performances only, November 18th & 25th at 2pm.
Tickets for the “Sunday Matinee mini-series” are $10 at the door, from 1pm the day of performance (no advance sales). All seats are General Admission. Something new as well: proceeds from the 50/50 ticket sales at each performance of “2 Across” will be donated to Prince Edward Community Radio.
If you’re planning on attending (and we sure hope you are….our own Ange Stever is making her directorial debut with this play so would be great if we could all come out and show our support for Ange and Prince Edward County Theatre!) please let them know at the door that you are a member of County FM…if this 50/50 draw is successful, they will do it again for their May “One-Act” Production.
We will back in touch with further updates soon, but in the meantime, hope you can make it out to one the Sundays!
