Possum Juniors...
What Makes the Possum experience unique? Possum Juniors are an affiliate group here at Possum Point Players. The purpose of our group is to provide opportunities for young performers and theatre artists to develop skills and friendships within the world of theatre. Membership is free and open to any student currently enrolled in grades 5 through 12. The "PJ's" (as we affectionately known) meet on the 3rd Monday of every month from 5:00p - 7:00p.

Each monthly workshop meeting focuses on a different aspect of the theatre world, along with improvisation and games to build confidence, creativity, and comradery. We cover topics such as makeup, lighting, costuming, choreography, playwriting, auditioning, as well as a focus on acting techniques and the fundamentals of theatre.  Our workshops are offered from September through May.

Experiment: A Work In Progress is a project started by young thespians who decided that "the show must go on." COVID-19 made it incredibly difficult for the arts, but that would not stop them.

A team of talented writers collaborated to write a show. Through weeks of work, Sincerely, Francis Ochidere was created. Director Gianna Voges, assistant director Abby Pamplona, and stage manager Rhys Humphreys, our amazing actors, and the rest of our hard-working team brought this show to life.

A classic murder mystery, Sincerely, Francis Ochidere follows the death of detective Ochidere and those who are tasked to solve his murder. Through trials and tribulations a team of crime solvers must learn to work together before it's too late.

Sincerely, Francis Ochidere is a show about betrayal, secrets, friendship, romance, growth and an touch of comedy, written, performed, and completely executed by the youth of today--the Possum Juniors 2021.

PJ's also have the opportunity to work with Possum Point Players in a variety of other roles such as assisting backstage, helping with tech needs, ushering, and of course performing in main stage productions.
