Andover Hub to host live play
Delivered to home computers
The premiere of an original one-act play, to be performed by its authors and delivered "live" to its audience via a link to their mobile and desktop devices, will be available for one-time viewing beginning at 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 13, to those who sign up in advance. Viewing is free, but limited to the first 100 who sign up by e-mailing The Andover Community Hub, the event host, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Title of the play is "The Misadventures of MarMar: The Case of the Stolen Ingredient." Co-authors and performers are the husband-and-wife team of Mark Vashro and Maryssa Wanlass, professional actors and filmmakers who recently moved to Andover from San Francisco. Vashro is a new member of The Andover Hub board of directors.
The home viewing is powered by Zoom, a user-friendly technology compatible with most computers. The Hub is currently using the technology to distribute its monthly Community Coffeehouse concerts to virtual attendees
Described as a "comedic culinary mystery" by its authors, and "aimed especially at children of all ages," the play's plot line is described as: "Someone has taken all the yeast....What is yeast? Why do we need it for pizza? Who took it? And what's up with DJ Baby O???"
As an added attraction, one viewer's name will be selected at random before the play begins, and a pizza -- donated by Pizza Chef of Andover -- will be delivered to the winner.
The evening's entertainment is being offered by The Andover Community Hub as the first event in a once-a-month series designed to engage families in the Andover community in new ways, such as family movie nights, Andover history presentations, and family musical performances. If social isolation continues, these events will be held on line. If restrictions are removed, they may be held at The Hub or other local public places. Area residents with ideas for public events of any kind may contact The Hub via the internet address above 603-735-5509.
