THUNDER BAY, ON ---- November 20, 2013 --- When a tireless young runaway comes begging for a job, the girls at Jenny’s house might just have to leave their lingerie behind in the new Thunder Bay, Cambrian Players production of Norm Foster's Jenny's House of Joy.
"Cambrian has been experiencing success with comedies and classics" said Richard Pepper, President of Cambrian Players. "The companion pieces of 'Outlaw' and 'Jenny' has allowed us to continue with a comic theme, while exploring the human themes Norm Foster offers in these plays" said Richard.
Director Nathalie Roy says the audience is invited to visit Baxter Springs in 1871 again as they meet Jenny and her girls who work at Jenny’s house of Joy. "An 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."
"Nathalie Roy is highly experienced in theatre, and has been a Stage Manager for many shows for Cambrian and other companies" said Richard. "However, Cambrian is extremely happy and proud to offer her this opportunity to debut as a director on this production."
The cast of Jenny's House of Joy includes some new talented faces to Cambrian Players such as Janis Swanson, Jessica Krasnichuk and Naomi Duvall who join veterans Jesica McNabb and Beverley Gravelle- MacLeod. Beverley Gravelle- MacLeod directed the brother show to Jenny, 'Outlaw' which played at the end of the last Cambrian season.
Norm Fosters Jenny's House of Joy opens this week at the Paramount Theatre. Show dates are November 21-23 & 27-30, with a curtain time of 8pm. Tickets available at Calico, Fireweed, Steepers, & at the door. For more information visit: www.cambrianplayers.ca
