        THE JUNKMAN COMETH
              
By Anonymous

If audience reaction is any measure, Seymour Collins and his intrepid troupe of thespians delivered a stellar performance in their presentation of "The Junkman Cometh" at last Friday's Forum. 
 

Among the highlights: Sue Severin opened and closed the performance singing  "Wintertime" (and the livin’ ain't easy). What a voice! And she narrated also, sharing that task with Annie Taylor. Morgan Silbaugh once again stood out (or, if you prefer, was outstanding) as a tree. Perhaps the very tree immortalized in "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn". Dropping his last leaf was a very poignant moment. Morgan also portrayed, among others, the Little Hitchhiker, and Rabbi Avi. 

 

Don Stone portrayed and sang Jake, the Junkman, as well as several other characters, not the least of whom was God. Possibly the applause will convince Don that he he might move to Mountain Meadows after all. And Lisbeth Wynn-Owen portrayed Seymour's niece and correspondent in his search for the true meaning of the junkman's refrain. Seymour claims to have cast her because of (in addition to beauty and talent) the similarities between Welsh and Yiddish. See the comments in the program for more details. In fact, see the program anyway,  even if you missed the performance. It's a joy to read.
