Wage Warfare Wraps Up the Season for the Kings Players

by Joseph Katz


Join us as The Kings Players at the Temple Theater wrap up their 2022 season with the light-hearted comedy, Wage Warfare. Young Hope finds herself sandwiched in between prim Bonnie and surly Louise, with the only apparent ‘hope’ for relief a sudden opportunity for promotion. Antics ensue when the three women all vie for the promotion and do their best to undermine each other, as Hope is reluctantly drawn into the other two women’s skulduggery.

Happily Haunted at Children’s Storybook Garden & Museum

by KJ Roberts


The Hanford Children’s Storybook Garden & Museum in Historic Downtown Hanford, CA will host Happily Haunted on October 22, beginning at 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. This family event – though designed for the kids’ enjoyment – will be a fun-filled spooky (but not creepy-ghoulish) evening adventure with T-Rex and a pirate as well as contests for kid’s costumes (costumes are not required) and Jack-o’-lanterns. There will, of course, be Trick or Treating, so attendees should bring their own bag or sack to collect goodies.

A Summer Classic On Stage In Hanford!

by Louella Moreland



The Curious Savage by John Patrick has been one of my favorite plays since I was a sophomore in high school. When Kings Players was searching for plays for the 2022 season, this little gem was chosen. and I was delighted to step up to direct it. Then I wondered what I got myself into because our stage is TINY and all eleven actors need to be on it in a rather chaotic scene toward the end! And there are lighting challenges for a small theater such as ours!

Kings Players’ second play of the season continues their Family Friendly Entertainment with The Widow in Mink. Margaret Osgood finds herself a recent widow and quite wealthy. She adjusts to her new life by buying herself a mink coat and joining the Wandering Widows’ Club where she creates a new social life. She soon finds herself pursued by her late husband’s business partner who questions her desire to donate much of her money to charity.

Since theatre on stage is on hold right now (check out our recent article that checked in with many local theatre companies on what they are doing during this time), it seemed like a good time to feature some local actors who have also been acting on our podcast, Mysteryrat’s Maze. This week we chatted with local actor Sean Hopper who has been the voice of several of our episodes. Mysteryrat's Maze features mystery short stories and first chapters read by local actors.

Theatre in the Valley During Shelter-In-Place

by Lorie Lewis Ham


This has been a difficult time for everyone. Not only are businesses closed that aren’t essential, but all events have been canceled as well. Many of those events have found creative ways to happen virtually, providing mostly free entertainment for those of us stuck in our homes. Community theatre has been hit particularly hard, canceling their shows has not only been disappointing for everyone, but they also don’t have those ticket sales coming in to help pay the bills.
