FITCHBURG — Stratton Players and the Fay Club will present a unique immersive theatre performance “Supper with George and Lucy Fay at the Fay Club”, at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Fay Club, located at 658 Main St.
Stratton Chair Sally Cragin, an award-winning writer, has written the script in which audience members meet Lucy Fay, her father, George F. Fay of Crocker Burbank, and mural painter Charles Howard Walker, along with “downstairs” members of the Fay home staff.
“The Fay Club was built as a unique and marvelous family home,” Cragin said. “The local builder also helped construct Fitchburg City Hall, and the architect, Richard M. Upjohn is the son of the architect who designed Christ Church Episcopal, our gorgeous Gothic church on Main Street.”
“Our audience will see Lucy Fay as a young woman — with ideas about hospitality, the improvement of circumstances for working women — and her father, George, who was one of the most dynamic business-people in Fitchburg,” Cragin added.
The performance will take place downstairs and also upstairs in the Fay Club and the audience is welcome to interact with actors during the supper buffet, “which is modelled on a Gilded Age Banquet,” Cragin said.
Members of the cast include Phil Cormier of Gardner, Michael Knight of Leominster, Carolyn Salter of Winchendon, Margo Thompson of Hudson, and Fitchburg High School students Daniel Hoecker, Kaya Hidanovic, and Sandra McGahan.
Tickets are $75 per person and there will be a Silent Auction and a 50/50 raffle, plus much merriment. For more information, or to make reservations, call 978-345-4537 or visit thefayclub.org.
