AUBURN – The Edward Little High School Drama Club and the Society of Southern Maine Craftsmen are joining forces once again to sponsor a craft show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, at the school cafeteria.

The event is a fund-raiser for the Drama Club and a venue for some of Maine’s crafters. On sale will be hand-crafted jewelry, wood, food, fabric and pottery. There will be no resale items or kits. All vendors are members of the Society of Southern Maine Craftsmen.

The Drama Club will receive the rental fee paid by the association for the use of the gym and the income generated from the sale of concessions. The income, along with funds already in the treasury, will be applied toward the purchase of a portable light board, light trees and lighting instruments.

The EL Drama Club takes productions “on the road” to some of Auburn’s elementary schools and Auburn Middle School. Because their venues do not have theatrical lighting, the club must rent lighting equipment. With an investment of about $3,000, the club will be able to do basic lighting at those productions.

The Society of Southern Maine Craftsmen is a nonprofit, juried craft organization. Founded in 1968, the organization is self-governed. It provides its members, who are seriously interested in producing quality hand-crafted products, venues for selling their products.

The society sponsors a number of craft shows in southern, central and mid-coast Maine as well as a retail store, Stone Soup Artisans, in Saco. The shows are open to the public, free.
