June 20, 2019, Fort Thomas, KY—Village Players of Fort Thomas is excited to announces its 2019-2020 season! All performances will be staged in Village Players’ intimate theater on the bottom level of the building the organization recently inherited from the Fort Thomas Woman’s Club at 8 N Fort Thomas Ave.

Time travel. Second chances. A musical love story told backward and forward. And also dragons. The three-show regular season can be purchased for only $45 at www.villageplayers.org. That’s 25% off the single-show ticket price! Plus there’s a family-friendly production in December for just $12, and Village will produce its annual New Works play festival in June 2020. 

Shows include:

Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, October 4, 5, 6, 10, 11 & 12. This brilliant play moves smoothly between 1809 and the present at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between classical and romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex on our life orbits—the attraction Newton left out. Directed by jef brown.

Of Dragons and Dwarves, December 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, & 15. An original, fantasy musical for children by local playwright Jack Williams and composer Linda Baumheckel. Directed by Steve Myers. This family-friendly production can be purchased individually or as an add-on to the season package. 

Room for Seconds, March 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, & 14 and is the debut full-length play by award-winning local playwright A.K. Forbes. When Zen brings his new, 24-and-a-half-year-old girlfriend home to meet his mother, a sauce made of strawberries sends her to the hospital. In the aftermath, his mother, his ex-girlfriend, and his father conspire to avoid legal culpability. Their effort proves to be ineffective but humorous, revealing hidden motives and secrets, ultimately ending with the status quo safely intact. Directed by Will Lindsey. 

The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown, April 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, & 25. An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically. The two characters only meet once, at their wedding, in the middle of the show. Directed by Nathan Henegar.
