Journey into the Wild West in the year 1890, in this classic story of good versus evil, law versus the gun, one man versus Liberty Valance.

NICE GIRL Runs April 19-May 5

DTG_Nice Girl logoNICE GIRL
Dayton Theatre Guild
April 19-May 5
[Dayton]

Directed by Debra Kent
Produced by K.L.Storer

Cast: Carly Risenhoover-Peterson as Josephine (Jo), Cassandra Engber as Francine,Heather Atkinson as Sherry & Scott Knisley as Donny

In suburban Massachusetts in the mid-1980’s, thirty-something-year-old Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job as a secretary and still lives at home with her hypochondriac mother. She started college but never finished, and has settled into a life that doesn’t offer much hope for the future. But when a new friendship at work and a chance flirtation with an old classmate give her hope for the possibility of change, she dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life. This is a play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.
