Peformers offer historical works

August 29, 2003

Chambersburg-based Conococheague Players is a readers' theater group that was formed close to 10 years ago, says member Pat Byers.

What's a readers' theater?

"That means we read instead of memorize," she laughs.

The small group of about 15 members, mostly retirees, reads poetry in elementary schools, nursing and retirement homes. They perform classic radio shows, and readings at special events - poetry on Valentine's Day, Civil War stories at the town's summer festival, ChambersFest.

Interested individuals are welcome, says member Bill Pukmel. For information, call Byers at 1-717-264-2247.

This fall, Conococheague Players will present a double feature appropriate to the Halloween season:

Murder They Wrote: "Sorry, Wrong Number" and "Death of a Playwright."

7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 2
