The Dorset Players is a vital community theatre which presents first-rate productions during the fall, winter and spring. They rent their theatre to the Dorset Theatre Festival in the summer. This offers Dorset and the surrounding area quality theatre all year round. The Dorset Players schedule includes, comedy, drama, musicals, one act plays and children’s theatre. Bob and I have enjoyed their productions over the years. We also enjoy talking with the casts and directors about their work since they provide a unique perspective on the value of community theatre.
For their upcoming production of Mothers and Sons, we spoke with the producer Cheryl Gushee, the director Sherry Kratzer and the cast of the play with the exception of the two boys who share the role of Bud, the young son of Cal and Mike, played by Paul Michael Brinker and Mike Cutler. Lynne Marcus plays the mother of Andre, Cal’s deceased lover. Once again we were treated to an insightful discussion of the process of putting on a play. Sherry Kratzer talked about the process of directing helping us understand and appreciate how the magic of theatre happens.
