FARMINGTON – “In Due Season,” a drama set in Colonial Williamsburg during the American Revolution, features several local teens. It will be presented on Friday, Sunday & Monday, July 8, 10 and 11 at 7 p.m. at the New Hope Baptist Church, 268 Perham Street in Farmington.

The cast has been diligently working on the play since last November in order to produce this challenging story that centers around five main characters: Mr. Richardson (John Trabucchi), his arrogant son (Jon Rebert), blind daughter, Rebekah (Marissa Yates), recently orphaned English girl, Elizabeth (Janna Winslow), and indentured servant, John (Daniel Parker). Two comic relief characters, the talkative Mrs. Peterson (Megan Howell) and the demanding Mrs. Perkins (Destiney Decker) bring hilarious relief to the otherwise intense script.

Several minor characters, including Joy Andrews, Kristin Andrews, Lydia Andrews, Ruth Andrews, Abby Howell, Chris Kidder, Matthew Parker, Will Parker, Sandi Rebert, Isaac Wildrick, Jared Winslow, Kamrin Yates, Keirra Yates and Max Yates, as well as a many extras round out the play. The writer/director of the play, Sandi Rebert, said
the teens are doing a phenomenal job of acting including tackling some difficult accents.

Several members of the cast had a chance to visit Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, in February of this year. Permission has been granted by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to use some of their fife and drum music as incidental music. Some period music by Bach and Handel will also be included. Much has been done to make the colorful costumes as authentic and varied as possible with Peggy Pinkham and Michelle Winslow researching the colonial period, using existing costumes and creating new ones.

The set construction (under the direction of Max Yates) has been an incredible task. A recreation of a street in Williamsburg opens up to reveal the interior of the Richardson home and even has an upstairs room complete with simulated flickering candlelight. There are even glowing fireplaces and a shop with a moving front wall to view interior scenes.

A children’s choir, under the direction of JoAnne Doyle, will be singing at the beginning of the play.

The public is cordially invited to this event. Admission is free. For more information call 778-9696. (Look for our float in the Farmington 4th of July parade!)
