The Nancy Curvin Playground Players was founded in 1998 in memory of the late Nancy Curvin and is jointly sponsored by the Geneva Theatre Guild and the Geneva Recreation Department. Each summer, two college-age students are hired to direct a small company of high school actors in a short, interactive play for audiences of young children and senior citizens. The play tours the area in late July and early August, giving free performances at parks, playgrounds, day care centers and nursing homes. The student actors are paid a stipend for their work.
This year the Nancy Curvin Playground Players will present The Big (Not So Bad) Wolf written and directed by TJ Bogart. A public performance will take place on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 at 5:30 at the Geneva Lakefront in front of the Gazebo.
In this short play, the story of a misunderstood wolf is written and directed by TJ Bogart. Emma Thomas is the assistant director and the cast consists of Mellissa Wright as the Narrator, Own Brown as the Wolf, Griffin Brown, Lily Mager, Moriah Pilet as the pigs (Clay, Chuck, and Winnie), and McKenna Bleakley as the Mayor.
