In The Wings

  • In The Wings: Crimes of the Heart

    Crimes of the Heart, The three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.

I was not expecting much when I entered the doors of the Village Players of Hatboro, but I was absolutely astounded by... the performance of "She Kills Dragons." It was amazing in all details. The story was inventive, the acting was incredible, the fight scenes were well done and overall it was just a great night out for my family. I have a 12-year-old daughter in who I am trying to spark an interest in the theater and last night's performance went a long way toward that goal. Do yourselves a favor and go see, "She Kills Dragons" and any other show they stage. They do community theaters proud. Way to go, Village Players of Hatboro! Please keep up the good work.read more

Great place for a fund raiser. Every seat is close to the stage and actors are very passable. Tax deductible 501c3

A great community theater that is run 100% by volunteers. You’d never know it, though, by the professional quality of... their shows. I am a member of the theater, and so glad this gem is close to home for me. They are such a fun and friendly group to be a part of.read more

A petite, historic, all-volunteer theatre in Hatboro, was recently renovated and has comfortable seats to watch... hilarious comedies and heartfelt dramas. The quality of selected plays and performances has increased in recent years. It's great to see such talent at a community theatre. I was so moved by some of the performances, I began to volunteer and audition myself. They do offer season tickets, convenient for locking in seats for each show, as they do sell out, and they permit you to migrate them if you can't make your chosen night.read more

My wife Judy and I, as well as many of our friends, have been long term season ticket holders at Village Players. We... are always amazed at the quality of the acting, the enjoyable performances, and the overall fine experience.We had been ticket holders for years at Walnut St. Theatre in Philly, but I can honestly say the shows at VP are just as entertaining, for a LOT LESS money and hassle!Keep up the great shows, and please do more to market yourselves, as VP is one of the best kept secrets in the area.John Quatriniread more

New seats, new lobby, new restrooms, great shows, fantastically talented and dedicated Board members. The latest show... The Murder Room was a fast paced, hysterical romp. No slouches in the cast. All spot on. By the way I'm not on the Board or in this play so my observations are unbiased and true.read more
