'Leading Ladies' comedy coming to Danville's Village Theatre

Show runs through Nov. 15

The Role Players Ensemble will present performances of "Leading Ladies" at the Village Theatre running through mid-month.

Ken Ludwig's "Leading Ladies" will be performed from Oct. 31 to Nov. 15 at Danville's Village Theatre under the direction of Scott Fryer.

The play, a comedy that premiered in 2004 and written by American playwright Ken Ludwig, is about two struggling Shakespearean actors in 1950s Pennsylvania who pretend to be an elderly woman's female relatives -- all for a scheme to con her into giving them part of her inheritance. Their plans go comically awry in a play called "one part Shakespeare, two parts 'Some Like it Hot' and full of laughs," according to a statement from the Role Players Ensemble.

"Leading Ladies" will feature actors Zara Benner, Carter Chastain, Alan Coyne, Caitlin Everson, James Frankle, Ann Kendrick, Jerry Motta and Damien Seperi.

Tickets range from $20-28 and are available for purchase online at www.RolePlayersEnsemble.com and by visiting the Danville Community Center, 420 Front St, Danville or by calling 314-3400.
