The Gallery Players To Perform at Riverwood Studios in Senoia


Noted Improv Troupe Part of Susan Steadman's Offshoot Productions

     This year the arts suddenly exploded in the Coweta County City of Senoia and they show no signs of stopping.  The latest exciting news is that the highly acclaimed Fayette-County-based improvisation troupe The Gallery Players (which is part of the prestigious Offshoot Productions of Dr. Susan Steadman) will be performing in Senoia at the Riverwood Studios.  And one of these performers is none other than Senoia's own Joey Waldrop, who was one of the previous Senoia arts news-makers when he was accepted into this improv troupe earlier this year!  
    This latest arts news triumph for Senoia was announced yesterday by Senoia's Claudia Wood, who was one of the leaders in Art Senoia earlier this year, one of the greatest of the explosions!  Here is her news release:

For Immediate Release
Senoia Hosts Improv Performance
     Take a little time out of your busy fall schedule to enjoy a funny, refreshing afternoon of professional comedy right here in our own area. The Gallery Players, an improvisational troupe from Offshoot Productions, will perform "Senoia Autumn Improv" at Riverwood Studios in Senoia on Sunday, November 16th at 4:00 p.m.
     An "improv" performance is a series of scenes in which the actors improvise everything - from characters to events to lines - so that each performance is unique. The actors rehearse for many hours to prepare for whatever details the audience might throw at them. This is the premise of the TV show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and the shows that The Gallery Players perform.
     Ranging in age from their twenties to their fifties, The Gallery Players boast a wide variety of credits in theatre and music. Members are Elizabeth Clausen, Andy Fleming, Kristi Israel, Betty Mitchell, Paige Steadman, and Senoia's own Joey Waldrop. The Director of Offshoot Productions and The Gallery Players is Susan M. Steadman.
"Senoia Autumn Improv" is sponsored by the Cultural Arts Committee of the Senoia Downtown Development Authority. Tickets to the performance are $12 and can be purchased Tuesday through Friday at the Welcome Center on Main Street in Historic Downtown Senoia or by phone. Seating is extremely limited, and light refreshments will be served after the performance. For tickets or more information, contact Suzanne Helfman at 770-599-8182 or Claudia Wood at 770-599-0047.
