River City Community Players
River City Community Players (formerly Huguenot Community Players) announces its 2017-2018 season. The newly renamed theatre company will now be producing plays in a variety of venues around the city. The first two productions of this inaugural season will take place at the former host venue of Huguenot Community Players
The Great Kooshog Lake Hollis McCauley Fishing Derby by Norm Foster runs September 29 – October 15, 2017 (Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO PERFORMANCE ON SUNDAY, OCT 1) at Huguenot United Methodist Church, 10661 Duryea Drive in Richmond. Investment banker James Bell gets stuck in the sleepy town of Kooshog Lake during their annual fishing derby. It's a fish out of water story that becomes a quirky and hilarious fish IN the water story complete with romance, broken hearts and a shark attack.
A Little Piece of Heaven by Matthew Carlin (part of the Acts of Faith Festival) runs February 23 –March 11, 2018 (Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm) at Huguenot United Methodist Church, 10661 Duryea Drive in Richmond. An unlikely relationship is forged in the quirky tourist shop called "A Little Piece of Heaven." Restless biker Mike, who works in the shop, finds a friend in the sassy elderly Lily, although their relationship certainly doesn't start out that way. But there's something odd about this little shop owned by the equally odd Elizabeth and Henry. Suspicion and disagreement turn to respect and trust in this place where long lost things are finally found.
Belles: The Reunion by Mark Dunn runs June 28 – July 8, 2018 (Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm) at CAT Theatre, 319 N Wilkinson Road in Richmond. The six Walker sisters, living in various parts of the country, are on the phone for another crisis-filled weekend. The most immediate concern: Mama has taken off all her clothes in the community room of her nursing home and the sisters must put their heads together and decide what to do with her.
