Nancy Curvin Playground Players Perform on Geneva Lakefront


Today, Wednesday, July 19th at 5:30 p.m., the Nancy Curvin Playground Players perform in Lakefront Park in Geneva. The ensemble is a joint venture of the Geneva Theatre Guild and Geneva Recreation Department. Since 1998, the group has brought together high school actors in the summer to perform for children and senior citizens. This year, Luis Figueroa, a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges is directing the group, which has chosen a new take on a familiar story.

Figueroa is a veteran of many productions at HWS and is a member of the colleges’ Mosaic NY social justice theatre company. But, his work this summer has given him a new appreciation for theatre as a collaborative art.

The Nancy Curvin Playground Players production of “Country-Ella” happens in Lakefront Park in Geneva tonight, Wednesday, July 19th at 5:30 p.m. The production is free and appropriate for all ages.

Kelly Walker started his public radio career at WBAA in West Lafayette, Indiana in 1985 and has spent some time in just about every role public broadcasting has to offer. He has spent substantive time in programming and development at KWMU in St. Louis, WFIU in Bloomington, Indiana, and Troy Public Radio in Alabama before his arrival in Geneva, New York. In addition, his work has been heard on many other public radio stations as well as NPR. Kelly also produces The Sundilla Radio Hour, which airs Sundays at 1 p.m. on Finger Lakes Public Radio and is distributed to public radio stations all over the country through PRX.
