Cocktails is a thought provoking play with comedic overtones.

Retirement, the idyllic life George has imagined for many years is finally a reality – or is it? Unfortunately, “Life is what’s happening while you’re making other plans”. After events spiral completely out of his control, will he get a second chance to live out his dream?

Cocktails, written by Nancy Preston Stark, will star Denise Bartalo as Sylvia Sharpton, Diane Chevron as Elizabeth Darling and Peter Elliott as George Sharpton. This is the same cast who were featured in last year’s successful Fringe Festival production of Ping .

Tickets are available July 16th at the Rochester Fringe Festival website. For more information call 585-325-3366.

News about Marie Long

Marie Long

If someone began to describe a person who has immeasurable talent, gives more than 100 percent of herself to every project, does the work of at least two people, asks for nothing in return, suffers no fools because she is so capable, that someone might be talking about Marie Long. To her family and friends, Marie is the most loyal, dedicated, generous and warm-hearted person anyone could ask for. If a person is lucky enough to have Marie as a friend, that person is lucky enough indeed.

Marie has been a part of the GRRC group for several years. She has worn many hats. If mailings needed to be done, she was there. If furniture was needed for a set, she did her best to either build it or go out and get it, if hands were needed backstage or on- stage, you could count on Marie. She painted, moved furniture, swept floors, you name it. She served as costume dresser, handmaiden to the “stars”, prop lady, and whatever else needed to be done. And she did it all with timeliness and precision. She was the consummate professional.
