The Village Players of Fort Thomas is kicking off its season in two weeks with “The Taming” by Lauren Gunderson.
“‘The Taming’ is a witty take on politics from both sides of the aisle and the causes that bring us together,” said Betsy Bossart, director and member-at-large on the Village Players board. “You can expect an irreverent, hilarious evening at the theater, best for anyone over 18 due to some language. Gunderson’s characters draw you in from the very beginning and Village’s intimate theater space makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of the story.”
Along with a new show, Village Players last month announced a capital campaign for the Fort Thomas Cultural Arts Center.
In August, Village Players hosted an open house of the building, complete with art-themed activities called the Arty Party, and over 200 people attended.
“We are raising funds towards building updates such as ADA-compliant restrooms, HVAC upgrades, a more accessible entrance and back stairway, and an elevator,” Bossart said.
Village Players’ theater is in the lower level of the building. The street level floor has an art gallery, and the second floor of the building has a stage for dance classes and other creative activities.
Village Players’ building was previously owned by the Women’s Club. In 2018 the Women’s Club gifted the property to Village Players.
