Have a ‘Wilde’ time at Oscars party

If you love the Oscars, make plans now to attend the second annual Oscar Wildewood party on March 7 in the Cedar Room at the Lake Wildwood Clubhouse.

The LWW Theatre is in full gear to provide the best Academy Awards celebration around. It will feature lights, red carpets, hors d’oeuvres, lots of bling and “real time” Oscar Awards shown on three big screens set up in the Cedar Room.

The event starts at 4:30 p.m., and you can walk the red carpet in your own finery or come dressed as your favorite movie character or actor or actress. A photographer will be on hand to create lasting memories of your costume … and you may even win a prize for creativity.

During the Oscar program intermissions, our LWW clubs and committees will show their own one-minute pre-recorded commercials and compete to win your vote for the coveted Oscar Wildewood statue. You will also have a chance to vote for Best Picture and possibly win your own golden Oscar.

An adults-only event, tickets are $25 each and can be obtained by calling Vicki Goss at (530) 432-3533. Tickets include hors d’oeuvres and one ballot to cast your vote for best picture. A no-host bar will be open, and additional ballots can be purchased at the event.

In addition to planning the Oscar Wildewood party, the LWW Theatre is working on their spring play.

Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple, Female Version,” will run from April 21 through May 1 in LWW and then again at the Grass Valley Off-Center Stage Theatre the last two weekends in May.

Neil Simon is well known for “The Odd Couple,” but many folks may have missed his “Female Version,” which he wrote in 1985, 20 years after the male version.

In the “Female Version,” the roommates play Trivial Pursuit instead of poker. If you had fun with Trivial Pursuit when it came out in the 1980s, you will love watching what these gals do to the game.

The ensemble production includes actors Merilee Imamoto, Laurie Jo Guastavino, Carolyn Winters, Cathy Jones, Trudy Tyrrell, Kathy Goldie, Ward Thompson and Kenn Rutledge. Tickets for the LWW show will go on sale March 22 in the administration office.
