Players start new troupe for the 55 and over set

SoVaNow.com / June 06, 2012
The Clarksville Community Players’ new troupe, The Double Nickel Players, staged their first show on May 20 — a preview of future works including dramatic readings, poetry, radio scripts, short stories, famous speeches and soliloquies.

Their shows, known as “readers theatre,” are interpretive activities in which readers use their voices to bring characters to life. It requires no sets, costumes, props, or memorized lines. The performer’s goal is to read a script aloud effectively, enabling the audience to visualize the actions.

The troupe includes Barry Roberts, Karon Runyon, Rich Henderson, Pete Balys, Richard Grendahl, Carol Henderson, and Molly Kratt, Nancy Barden, Dyan Willis, Irene Chapman and Sally Morgan.

The Double Nickel Players are open to anyone 55 or older who would like to try theater but is afraid of memorization, acting, and hours of rehearsing. Those interested should contact Nancy Barden at 434-738-5383.
