The run of our 4th show of the 2019-20 season, GOOD PEOPLE, was shortened, and MENDING FENCES, our 5th and final show of the season, was cancelled altogether. We regret these decisions, but the safety of our theatergoers and volunteers had to be our highest priority.
We haven’t forgotten you.
The Village Players Board of Directors meets regularly to discuss the developing situation and make tentative plans for what we’ll do when circumstances permit.
Watch this space. Further news will be published as decisions are made.
In the meantime, have a look at some of our past seasons. Just click on one of the images below, and read more about that season and all the plays in it…
