Come see John Gravel in "The Nerd" by the Essex Community Players!
 Essex Community Players concludes its 2010-2011 season with "The Nerd"  a comedy by Larry Shue author of "The Foreigner" produced through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. It is directed by Donna Boisselle and John Gravel will play the part of Warnock Waldgrave, Hotel Mogul or Terre Haute, Indiana.

The story of Willum Cubbert, an unassuming young architect, friends Tansy and Axel, and unexpected houseguest Rick.  Rick saved Willum's life in Vietnam and Willum has promised Rick he could come to him for help at any time. Rick shows up while Willum is hosting a dinner party for his boss. His awkward manner and inappropriate behavior throw the occasion into shambles. Then, to top it off Rick decides to move in. At his wit's end, Willum decides he has no alternative but to take a chance on Axel's scheme to get Rick to move out.

Chandler announces auditions for its inaugural Summer Pride Festival. The Festival's director, David Zak - Executive Director of Pride Films and Plays in Chicago - will cast actors from the region during open auditions at Chandler on May 14 and 15.


Mr. Zak will be in residence in Randolph July 5 - 17, working with regional actors to produce two full weekends of theatre focused on gay and lesbian issues on the Main Stage in Chandler's Music Hall. Headshots and resumes for men and women in their 20s to 50s should be sent to


David Zak has won many Jeff Awards for directing and writing, Chicago's equivalent of the Tony for New York theater. He is an adjunct faculty member at both Roosevelt University in Chicago and Korea National University of Arts in Seoul.  Zak has directed in Chicago, London, Dublin, Seoul and New York, and he is excited to link artists and audiences from Vermont with PFP's international group of writers working on new gay and lesbian material.


Chicago's Pride Films and Plays and Chandler Center for the Arts are proud to partner in producing this innovative series at Chandler. Using gay and lesbian characters or themes, the Festival will highlight human stories of parenting, marriage, faith, and love with the goal of deepening cultural understanding.
