Valley Players find a home

Napa Valley Register, May 9, 2018

The Valley Players, the Napa-based nonprofit theater troupe, will be performing their 2018-19 season of shows at NVPAC’s performance venue in Yountville.

In July, they will perform Horton Foote’s “The Old Friends,” set in Harrison, Texas, and exploring the theme “being rich means never having to say you’re sorry.”

 A world premiere follows in October with “Ordinary Day” by Bay Area playwright Lorraine Midanik, in which Henry and Maggie struggle with their future amid a swirl of memory problems, sleeping pills and a promise.

In February 2019, they present “Farce of Habit” by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. This comic Southern romp takes place at the Reel ‘Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks.

The first show of the 2019-2020 season will be “Women in Jeopardy” by Wendy MacLeod.

Valley Players is a community-based group from the Napa Valley whose focus is to produce quality affordable theater from plays of both the classic and contemporary genres that provide roles and opportunities for women over 40. They strive to include as many women as possible in each aspect of theatrical production — from writing to acting to directing to design.
