Kitson Library Annual Benefit Giving Back in Paradise
By Becca Williams

Rehearsal Kathy Santeiro and Buzzy Maxwell

  Theatre in Nosara is a far cry from Broadway but our local version packs more “heart” than any professional stage production. This year’s annual benefit to support Nosara’s library is a staged reading of Neil Simon’s comic Broadway hit, The Sunshine Boys.

This effort to raise money for the David Kitson Library is primarily a Gringo event that, according to producer Alice Olson, is a way to say “thank you” to the residents of Nosara. “Here we are living on their beach in their community really enjoying a fabulous life,” she says, clearly moved.

“There are lots of places in the world where ex-pats go to live but where they are not welcomed. They have to live isolated, where they are despised, envied or otherwise resented by the local community. And that is just not the case here. The people of Nosara are our friends.”

The stage reading will follow cocktails and dinner and will be held at the Club House at Selvamar in L Section, near the Del Mar Academy, on Sunday, February 21 beginning at 5 p.m. Buzzy Maxwell and Don Savage will read the parts of the Sunshine Boys, a former vaudevillian comedy team, and supported by a cast of local amateur actors. Kim Shook directs it and Marlin Bill’s will cater the dinner.

According to Olson, the event’s proceeds support the operation of the library and its many community programs … including a high school diploma program (most adults in Nosara haven’t finished high school), English classes, reading groups for school kids, and gatherings for senior citizens. “It has grown into a marvelous program and this annual benefit event is one of its primary sources of budget support,” she adds.

Reservations and advance ticket purchase are required. The cost is $75 per person; a US tax receipt for $50 will be given to anyone requesting it through Friends of Nosara. For more info or reservations call 2682-0091 or visit Biblioteca David Kitson, behind the Ebais Clinic in Nosara.
