SUMMER SHAKESPEARE IN JULY
A condensed version of Twelfe Night, Or what you will, by William Shakespeare, wil be performed on the front lawn of the
Concord Free Public Library, at 5:00 p.m. in the afternoon of each
Saturday and Sunday, July 12-13 and 19-20. Free admission. Adapted and
directed by Robert Runck, with Tom Sikina as Stage Manager, and
featuring Mike Lague, Ed Bernard, Elizabeth and Bill Hoermann, Brigid
Battell, Andrew Harrington, Nick Meunier, Lexi Deschene, Kamela Dolinova

comic shenanigans in one of Shakespeare's best-known plays.

|THE CONCORD PLAYERS WIN AN OSCAR
union of two Concord Players families (the McConchies and the Kinsmans)
just added a new member to their combined family. Lindsay McConchie
(daughter of Linda and Jim) and Johnny Kinsman (son of Corinne and
Artty), welcomed a new baby boy into the fold on May 16th, weighing in
at 8 pounds. Good thing he was a big boy ... he has a lot of names
to carry ... Oscar James Arthur Kinsman.
Grandfather Artty with Grandson Oscar.
Dad and son had a quick chat and decided they would keep each other.
Artty was President of Concord Players, and has designed or constructed
sets for a number of shows. Corinne has run Membership, publishes the
Yearbook, was Subscription and Ticket Manager, does all the program
content for our Playbills, has produced and is producing many of our
shows, and is stepping down after eight years on the Players board, just
as Linda comes on. Linda has handled PR, lobby decoration, props,
and set dressing, for which she has earned many DASH awards.
Johnny and Lindsay recently co-founded Anthem Theater in Boston, and
Johnny has appeared in Players productions of Amateurs (2012), Evita
(1992) and Lysistrata (1991). Oscar is a true Concord Players' baby.
