Springwater Players prepare production

Group has done 18 comedies and melodramas since 1994


by: NEWS PHOTO: SCOTT JORGENSEN - Cast members rehearse for the upcoming production of 'Holder Posey, the Felonious Photographer.'Holder Posey has big plans.

The felonious photographer has every intention of coming into the small town of Holeinroad and stealing all of its wealth.

But luckily, Sheriff Freddy Katt and citizens like Ida Claire Yawl and Drew Deline are going to stop Holder before he can realize his twisted vision.

That’s the plotline for the Springwater Players’ upcoming March Melodrama, “Holder Posey, the Felonious Photographer,” written by Billy St. John. The dinner theater presentation of the play is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on March 15 and 16 at the Springwater Grange, with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 17 and a dessert theater set for 7 p.m. on March 22.

Rehearsals for “Holder Posey” have been going on three times a week since mid-January.

The Springwater Players have put on 18 productions since 1994, most of them comedies and melodramas. Over the years, people between the ages of 9 and 75 have played various parts and roles, with entire families participating as cast members.

This production will be no exception, as much of the cast consists of relatives. Rob Guttridge stars as Posey, and is joined by family members Marilyn, Jessica Jo, Kara, Don and Kendra, who plays Mayor Gullible. Another Guttridge, Tami, is the director.

The Souders family is well represented, as Jennifer plays Ida Claire Yawl. She is joined by relatives Kathleen, Vernon and Tabitha.

Tickets for the dinner productions are $15 each. The meal will be a pulled pork sandwich, apple salad and green beans, with ice cream and cookies for dessert. The matinee and dessert theater will cost $10.

For reservations or for more information, call Don and Tami Guttridge at 503-630-6238. The Springwater Grange is located at 24591 S. Wallens Road in Estacada.
