- Gary Sredzienski has been commissioned to write and star in the upcoming world premiere of “Creek Man: The Unbelievable True Story of the Accordion-Playing Merman.” The play/dinner theater at the York Harbor Reading Room is a blend of storytelling and music written by, about, and starring Gary Sredzienski, an accordion master who’s earned the nickname Creek Man for his four-season swims in the tidal creeks of the Piscataqua River on the Seacoast. Sredzienski, who is listed on the State Arts Council’s Artist Roster, was commissioned for “Creek Man” by Harbor Light Stage of Kittery Point, Maine. The play will be launched on a regional tour throughout New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts later this year. More information is available at www.harborlightstage.org.
