Benefit theatrical production tackles serious issues by Tucker Hottes

SPECIAL TO THE TRIBORO BANNER

Weighty issues like mental illness and suicide are difficult to discuss — but the Misfit Players and Act Out Theatre Group aim to bring audiences a frank portrayal of one family’s struggles in NEPA’s first production of the Tony Awardwinning rock musical “Next to Normal” Friday through Sunday, Sept. 25-27 and Oct. 2-4 at the Act Out Theatre in Taylor, with tickets $20 at the door or $15 for students or advance purchases. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. Director Heidi Germaine Schnappauf said the spark for production came two years ago during a discussion about mental illness with Alice Y. Lyons, a longtime friend and a lead actress in the production. “There is such a negative connotation, people can be afraid to speak up,” said Schnappauf. “Even though there are suicide prevention lines and resources, we have people we know who have lost their lives. It was our hope to produce this show someday, and maybe somebody will call the hotline, or reach out to a friend.” Schnappauf and Lyons history with the Misfit Players is a long one. “I started the Misfit Players when I was 15,” said Schnappauf. “At the time, I had so many talented friends in all facets of theater — not only actors and singers, but lighting people, musicians, stage crew, painting, building, all of it. “I turned it into a senior project for school. We made an effort with that show to use the proceeds — I didn’t want to keep any of the money — to give to charity.” After moving out of the area to attend New York University and follow her career, Schnappauf said Lyons continued the tradition at home.

“Alice kept the Misfit Players going,” said Schnappauf. “She went on to become a high school teacher at Coughlin, and she kept the group alive.” Recently, Schnappauf suffered an injury and was unable to return to work during therapy. It was then that the “Next to Normal” production became more than just a project to help organize from afar. “I was going nuts, I couldn’t work to the extent I wanted to,” she said. “I ended up taking over as director of the show, and immersed myself in the play.” After discussing options for the charity donations, they decided on the Children’s Service Center in Wilkes-Barre, after learning the organization was building an outpatient unit and seeking additional funding. “It was a perfect opportunity to pair the arts with the community, especially since they have a specific project they’re working toward,” said Schnappauf. “We know where the money is going and we want to help make a difference.” From left, seated: Willie Demyan and Ericka Law.

Schnappauf said “Next to Normal” will touch “We felt it was a passion project and the show people who have personally experienced mental wouldn’t have come about without Alice, and it’s health issues or have friends and loved ones who more than just ‘I want to be a lead in a play,’ ” have dealt with issues of their own. said Schnappauf. “It was ‘I want to do this because “It’s a very heartbreaking, but very real story,” it means so much to me in my life.’ We started she said.

Main Street Bridge Reopens

The Lackawanna County Commissioners Jim Wansacz, Patrick M. O’Malley and Edward G. Staback cut the ribbon last week to officially open the newly constructed Main Street Bridge in Moosic, allowing traffic to flow once again through a vital downvalley artery. The bridge, which is being renamed Moosic Veterans Memorial Bridge, had been closed since April of 2011. The structure was built in 1956 after being wiped out in a flood. It was originally a 112-foot long, two-span bridge. Lackawanna County replaced the span with a new 50-foot-6-inch single-span

steel I-Beam bridge that is 30 feet curb to curb. The new bridge used an existing abutment on the east side and a new abutment on the west side. All of the utilities were relocated off of the bridge, landscaping was done and a bronze plaque was incorporated to mark the opening of the span and its reconstruction. The original span was upgraded in the 1970s through a Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection project. One of the spans was filled with earth and a concrete channel was built through the other span.

OPEN AT NOON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. FOOD AND DRINK SPECIALS ALL DAY SUNDAY. CHECK SOUTHSIDEBOWL.COM FOR ALL THE DETAILS.
