THUNDER BAY – Entertainment – Cambrian Players is set to raise the curtain on their latest production. Jenny’s House of Joy, by Norm Foster takes to the stage November 21-23 and 27-30.
When a tireless young runaway comes begging for a job, the girls at Jenny’s house might just have to leave their lingerie behind. A delightful new comedy about the oldest profession.
The play is directed by Nathalie Roy, and features a local cast that includes Janis Swanson, Jesica McNabb, Beverley Gravelle-MacLeod, Jessica Krasnichuk, and Naomi Duvall.
Says Nathalie Roy of the show; “We visit Baxter Springs in 1871 as we meet Jenny and her girls who work at Jenny’s house of Joy. A innocent young run away is given a job but causes some dissention when her business sense is underestimated. Everyone has a story of how they came to work at Jenny’s and it may not be what you first expect. We learn that hastily passin
g judgment can be dangerous.”
Roy, who is no stranger to the stage, is making her directorial debut with Cambrian. “When I was stage managing I made many decisions but the final word was always the director’s. Now that’s me! I am fortunate that I have had many mentors and I can draw from my experiences from working along side them and the many lessons I learned from them. I have a very supportive and hard working cast and crew.”
Jenny’s House of Joy will show at the Paramount Theatre on Court Street. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors/students. The show is not recommended for children. Tickets are available at Calico, Fireweed, Steepers and at the door.
