Four Weddings and an Elvis Presented by the Kings Players

by Annie McGrath

Viva Las Vegas! Come join the Kings Players at the Temple Theatre for Four Weddings and an Elvis. Opening August 18 and running through September 3. When we were selecting plays for the 2023 season, the second I read this play I knew I wanted to direct it; the only trouble is I had never directed a play before! I am so very glad that I decided to make this play my first.

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!

by Sarah Peterson-Camacho

Threading the digital byways of paranormal blogs and websites, ghostly urban legends spring up with surprising regularity. And for every alleged supernatural encounter, there is a Woman in White—or a Vanishing Hitchhiker. These legends linger and mingle in the comments of anonymous storytellers around a virtual campfire, blurring the boundaries of fact and fiction, life and death.
