Village Players presents Ring Round the Moon by Jean Anouih (adapted by Christopher Fry), Feb. 9 – 17, 2018. Village Players is located in the lower level of the Ft. Thomas Woman’s Club, 8 North Ft. Thomas Ave, Ft. Thomas, KY 41075.
A number of guests arrive for a party at a country chateau. Their intertwining relationships create a mix of emotions, with comic results. A play “of many moods…wistfully romantic, satirical, fantastic…To make his points about love (the author) has invented a fable about twin brothers—Frederic, who is shy and sensitive, and Hugo, who is heartless and aggressive. Frederic is in love with a hussy who is in love with Hugo. To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing to a ball a beautiful dancer who masquerades as a mysterious personage and becomes the triumph of the occasion. She is a susceptible maiden in her own right. She not only breaks up all the cynical romances that have been going on before she arrived, but loses her own heart as well.”
Ring Round the Moon is directed by Allan Karol, produced by Barbara Karol and features the talents of Steve Phelan, Michael Gettinger, Kiya Fix, Nisrene Langenbrunner, Will Lindsey, Barbara Karol, Jennifer Davis, Tim Carney, Fred Murrell, Amanda Szarmack and Dava Lynn.
