John Henry (Director) John dedicates this show to the memory of Patricia Kennedy and David Ward "two giants of community theatre who should be remembered."
Lynnie Heinemann (Louise) After once being a theatre major at Kent State University, Lynnie took a different direction in her life to marry and raise her family. She also changed her professional direction to pursue a career in recreational therapy and didn't become reinvolved in theatre until 1996. After a series of theatre classes at the Toledo Rep, she began what she considers to be her own recreational therapy "acting." She has appeared at The Village Players in The Female Odd Couple, Arsenic and Old Lace, Social Security, and Death Trap. This past summer she appeared in Ms. Rose's Dinner theatre production Over the Tavern.
D. Nicholas Hanson (Wally) D. Nicholas Hanson has been involved in Toledo theatre for several years. Here at The Village, he last appeared as Billy Bob in Lu Ann Hampton Laverty Oberlander. He has also been seen in The Last Meeting of the Knights of the White Magnolia, Pvt. Wars, Psycho Beach Party, and several others. In addition, he co-directed Wrong Turn at Lungfish in 2003, and directed Much Ado About Nothing in 2002. His numerous accomplishments include receiving two Excellence in Acting awards from OCTA, assistant directing the independent film In the Company of Strangers, and receiving a BA in Theatre from The University of Toledo. Derek currently works for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and asks everyone not to forget those in the South who are still homeless.
Elizabeth Palmer (Janet) Elizabeth is excited to be making her debut performance at The Village Players. Previous stage appearances include Arsenic and Old Lace and Fiddler on the Roof at the Croswell Opera House, Godspell, Honk!, and Little Shop of Horrors with the Bedford Community Players, as well as appearances on the Waterville Playshop and Toledo Rep stages. Like Lynnie, Elizabeth views drama as therapy. “I enjoy stepping onto the stage and out of the 'Beth Palmer' world, which is a world in and of itself.” Welcome to The Village Elizabeth.
