Nomadic Performance Initiative Invites Audiences to “Wonder With Purpose” During THE CHILDREN’S HOUR
Set in a fictional New England town in the 1930s, THE CHILDREN’S HOUR tells the story of two women who are unjustly accused of homosexual activity by one of their students. The outraged community quickly withdraws all of their students, causing a witch hunt that ultimately forces the school to close. A relevant and haunting reminder of the power of words, lies and intolerance.
Past productions of THE CHILDREN’S HOUR featured artists such as Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine, James Garner, Elisabeth Moss and Keira Knightley.
The cast includes: Blair Godshall as Martha Dobie, Katrina Reynolds as Lily Mortar, Tony Newton as Joseph Cardin, Jennifer Trier as Amelia Tilford, Lexi Rigsby as Mary Tilford, Kayla Vogel as Karen Wright, Katie Keller as Rosalie Wells, Erin East as Peggy Rogers, Brooke Singleton as Agatha, Emily Keller as Evelyn Munn, Emma Wolfe as Lois Fisher, TBA as Helen Burton, TBA as Catherine & Ethan Glahn as Grocery Boy.
THE CHILDREN’S HOUR is directed by Farley Norman and produced by NPI founder Blair Godshall.
Performances run Sept. 5-8, 2019 at the Lincoln Grant Scholar House, 824 Greenup Street, Covington, KY 41011. Curtain is 7:30pm on Thursday-Saturday with the closing Sunday matinee at 2pm.
General admission tickets are $15. For groups of 10 or more, tickets are $10 each. Tickets are available online at https://childrenshourplay.bpt.me.
The Nomadic Performance Initiative, founded by Blair Elizabeth Godshall, started in 2019 as a way to provide opportunities for artistic expression by showcasing the complex roles women play (both onstage and off) with the hope of reaching new audiences and creating community. As nomads travel, we believe mobility is the most efficient strategy for discovering scarce resources. We strive to replace scarcity with abundance. Please join us for our inaugural production of “The Children’s Hour” as we “wander with purpose.”
