When a handful of locals joined together in 1966 to provide entertainment for themselves and the young community of Elanora we don’t imagine they considered the long-term outcome. In the following years hundreds of members have performed on stage, worked in the many technical and backstage areas and quite a few have directed. They have learned new skills, developed and shared them, many going on to professional work, and many spending a small part of their life with us. Some of us have been around for quite a while and hopefully will be here for many years to come.
We assure you Elanora Players are following all government guidelines. We are no different from any other theatre company: COVID has restricted our current ability to put on performances. Fortunately our group of enthusiastic thespians are working towards a goal of a 2021 production. We will keep you updated.
It is the summer of 1953, and the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centres around fading broadway stars George and Charlotte Hay, who are performing Private Lives and Cyrano de Bergerac in repertory within their run-down touring company in Buffalo, New York. Disaster is imminent, on-stage harmony is compromised, relationships on the brink all caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingenue.
The Elanora Players have been a second home to me. They have taught me how to build sets, attach lighting brackets, work with folks of all backgrounds, and given me a home away from home. They have entertained me, encouraged me and accepted me, foibles and all. The way they treat their patrons, actors and volunteers continues to make me smile. The Players are not just a hobby, they are an outlet, an escape.
