The Penfield Players, a not for profit community theatre, is one of oldest continuing theater groups in this area, having been established in 1965. The group presents four productions a year — two full stage production shows and two readers' theatre. Penfield Players are sponsored by the Penfield Recreation Department.
This year, for the first time, the Penfield Players are producing a fifth show, “Impossible Marriage,” for the annual Rochester Fringe Festival. You can see it on September 15 and 7:30 p.m. in the Multi Use Community Cultural Center at 142 Atlantic Ave. Pandora Kingsley is to be wed to Edvard Lunt, a worldly artist more than twice her age, in a beautiful ceremony outside of Savannah, Georgia. Her family and friends, however, are less than thrilled at the match. Harboring their own secret hopes and desperate desires, they conspire to end the marriage even before it begins. Full of witty observations, this comedy of manners and modern marriage pits passion against social norms. Which will win? A hilarious Southern gothic comedy!
Then, in October, we present the second of our full stage productions, “Rex’s Exes.” It opens on Friday, October 25, and runs through Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Penfield Recreation Center, 1985 Baird Road in Penfield, New York. The Verdeen cousins are teetering on the brink of disaster again! A surprise birthday part, a hastily thrown-together funeral, an unexpected return, romance, and hilarity all play a part in this sequel to the wildly successful production of “The Red Velvet Cake War.”
The Players welcome anyone who has an interest in theatre whether it is acting, directing, costuming, or any other aspect of a production. Join Penfield Players for a rewarding theatre experience.
