History Revival | The Bickersons at Sea

History Revival | The Bickersons at Sea



As part of the History Revival: Coastal Chronicles lecture series join us for a re-creation of an old-time radio broadcast from the 1940s as Possum Point Players presents a fun-filled program of merriment and laughs. After a brief introduction to some of the popular shows of the “Golden Age of Radio,” they will present The Bickersons at Sea, followed with a pair of laugh-out-loud features: The Man Who thought of Everything and St. George and the Dragonette.

The show cast includes Andrew Hertzberg, Carole and George Mason, Bernie Noeller, Marilyn Ransom Noeller, Tony Pierantozzi, Jennifer Schultz, Anna Toyna, and Andy Rollman at the sound effects table.

A branch of the Possum Point Players of Georgetown and brainchild of the late David Palmer, the Possum Point Players Radio Theatre was founded in 1996. Its mission is double-pronged: to read plays aloud at monthly meetings and to present for the public staged readings of dramatic material. The group creates a networking studio, complete with microphones, sound effects, and transcribed music.

The History Revival: Coastal Chronicles lecture series is a collaborative effort of the Zwaanendael Museum and Lewes Public Library. The Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay have been an integral part of Delaware’s history, and have connected the small state to global events and issues. Maritime communities and industries have taken advantage of Delaware's coast for centuries. Delawareans past and present have benefited and struggled against the water's constant change. Through lectures, music, and historical theater, the goal of History Revival: Coastal Chronicles is to widen the understanding of maritime history within Delaware.

This lecture series is partially funded by the Delaware Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
