HAMILTON-GIBSON POSTPONES “THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT,” CANCELS “A CHRISTMAS CAROL” AND CONSIDERS LIVE STREAMING “IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE”

Hamilton-Gibson Productions announced late Tuesday night, Oct. 27 following a meeting of the board of directors that “The Lifespan of a Fact” has been postponed indefinitely, “A Christmas Carol” has been cancelled and live streaming is being considered for “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

“The board made the decision based on community cases of COVID-19,” said Operations Coordinator Bev Dochstader after making the announcement by email at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27. “In the interest of safety for our audiences, we have decided to not hold in-person productions,” she said.

“We want to do ‘The Lifespan of a Fact” as soon as we can, but have no idea when that will be,” said Dochstader. Performances of this production were originally scheduled at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 6 and 7 and 13 and 14 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sundays, Nov. 8 and 15 in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.

“We are also cancelling “A Christmas Carol” entirely,” Dochstader said. “A Christmas Carol” was scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3, 4 and 5 and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6 in the Warehouse Theatre during Dickens of a Christmas weekend. One of the world’s most enduring holiday stories, “A Christmas Carol” was written by Charles Dickens 177 years ago. It is the tale of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, a coldhearted man who learns the value of love.

“‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ will be streaming, but the details remain to be seen,” she added. This beloved American Christmas classic performed as a radio show is currently scheduled for Dec 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20. It is about a man who has problems and is thinking about ending it all. Instead, he rescues his guardian angel, Clarence who then shows him what his town would have looked like if it hadn’t been for all of his good deeds over the years.

LAST WELLSBORO GROWERS MARKET IS THIS THURSDAY, OCT. 29

The last Wellsboro Growers Market is this Thursday, Oct. 29 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the front lawn of the First Presbyterian Church at 130 Main Street in Wellsboro, weather permitting. If there is heavy rain, the market will be cancelled.
Gary and Cheryl Keeney will be at the market with winter squash, cauliflower, onions and Roma tomatoes along with pumpkins, gourds, ornamental corn and popcorn bunches from the Keeney Farm.

Kathy Siegrist of Bakery 303, known as the pound cake lady, is bringing classic butter, lemon with lemon glaze, serious chocolate, coconut, and blueberry-cranberry pound cakes and cake pops dipped in Ghirardelli chocolate.

Liz McLelland of Yorkshire Meadows will have her freshly made apple dumplings, pecan sandies, salted caramel shortbread, pumpkin bars, lemon bars, scones, shortbread cookies, ginger cookies, peanut butter cookies, tarts, carrot cakes, lemon and lime curd, triple berry jam and orange marmalade.

Jean LaCroce of Heart Dog Delectables is bringing her freshly made and decorated dog bones, paw prints, dog and cat faces, spiders, bats, mummies, skeletons, green and fall colored leaves, pink ribbons and orange pumpkins specially decorated for Halloween and for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. She will also be offering stained glass suncatchers in different designs, such as hearts, paw prints, dogs, cancer ribbons, moons and bears.

Frank Maffei, owner of Staggering Unicorn Winery and a winemaker for almost 30 years, will host free tastings and sell wines he has created, such as cranberry, pineapple strawberry, raspberry, lemon, peach, and mint chocolate as well as other flavors.

Customers are asked to wear masks and maintain social distancing. For more information, call Thomas Putnam at (570) 439-2000 or email wellsborogrowersmarket@gmail.com.
