THE SPRING musical presented by the Deersville Community Players (DCP) was recently announced by Executive Director Joyce Lannuam.
"I Married an Angel" is scheduled for six performances June 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26 and auditions will be held next Sunday, March 13, at 2 p.m. in the Deersville Theater.
The production is under the direction of DCP President Richard Hodkinson who will be assisted by Judy Bear.
Cast requirements include the following: principals, three women and three men; featured, 10 women and one man; and a large singing-dancing ensemble with numerous small roles. The chorus can be of all ages; however, no children under the age of 10 are needed.
"I Married an Angel," is produced through special arrangement with Rodgers and Hammerstein Theater Library of New York.
The play centers around a wealthy banker who become disillusioned with women an vows the only one for him would have to be an angel. It is only a song or two before his "dream" girl flies in the window.
He marries her and soon finds that angels can sometimes be troublesome, having none of the human failings that all mere mortals need to tolerate in one another.
Angel's ability to be in any way dishonest results in her successfully alienating everyone from the Banker's biggest depositor to society's dame.
Through some side-splitting shenanigans, Angel is brought down to earth, for what is, naturally, a wedding made in heaven.

ALTHOUGH it is nearly spring, the Harrison Coal and Reclamation Historic Park (HCRHP) has something you might be interested in!
The group has gathered pictures which have been combined to make a very interested calendar for 2011.
Photos of the Mountaineer, the first Marion Power Shovel #3760 in a series of giant strip mining shovels to work this area, are featured in the calendar and range from the constructing of the behemoth in 1955 to its "walking" to Egypt Valley.
These calendars, which are available in a limited number, may be obtained at the Cadiz/Harrison County Visitors Center, 143 South main St., Cadiz; The Puskarich Public Library on East Market St., Cadiz; The Scio Library in Scio; the Freeport Branch Library in Freeport; or by contacting Dale Davis at 740-391-4135.
You may also order by mail at HCRHP, P.O. Box 403, Cadiz, 43907.
Cost is $10 per calendar. Shipping is an additional $3.
Members of the group are planning to create a series of these calendar and will feature others giant earth movers such as the Gem of Egypt and The Silver Spade.
The project is sponsored by the Cadiz Insurance Agency, Butter Ridge, Custer Pharmacy, Clark-Kirkland Funeral Home with photos provided by Dale Davis.
