‘Don’t Drink The Water’ A ‘Don’t Miss’

If you’re in the mood for a good comedy, don’t miss the Oswego Players’ current production of “Don’t Drink the Water,” written by Woody Allen and directed by Sherri Metz.

This writer saw a tech rehearsal last night and deems it hysterical.

The pace is fast and the laughs just keep coming.

Among the fine talent contributing to the frenzied family trapped in a foreign embassy behind the iron curtain is Jennifer Snow.

Snow has been involved in the Oswego Players for over more than 12 years.

She made her debut breakout role as the rascally dog “Sylvia” in the play of the same name, directed by Bobby Fontana.

Since then, Snow as played a plethora of roles including, Suzanne in “Don’t Dress for Dinner,” Chris Gorman in “Rumors,” Esther Smith in “Meet Me in St. Louis,” and Elaine Harper in “Arsenic and Old Lace,” to name just a few.

She is also a talented director, and has in the last seven years some dozen shows under her belt.

Not content with just acting and directing, Snow serves on the executive board of the Oswego Players as recording secretary and chairwoman of the Scholarship Committee.

Professionally, she is a reading teacher for the Camden Central School District.

Other cast members include, Nelson, Sherri and Chris Metz, Brian Pringle, Joannie Anderson, Julia Dighe and Juan Lamanna.  Additionally, kudos to Eric Cronk.  Cronk stepped in last-minute to cover two performances for Knate Roy.  Cronk will play the part of the Ambassador’s Aide on September 13 and 14. He does a yeoman’s job on short notice.

The show is scheduled for production September 13 and 14, 20 and 21 at 8 p.m. and September 22 at 2 p.m.

Reservations may be made at the box office (315-343-5138)  The Players are grateful for the support from Pathfinder Bank toward the Oswego Players’ 75th season productions.
