‘Miss Homles’ Delights Audience

Peninsula Players Theatre presented a reading of “Miss Holmes” by Christopher M. Walsh before a crowd of more than 125 at Björklunden Monday, April 3. “Miss Holmes” was produced as part of The Play’s the Thing, a winter series of play readings organized by Peninsula Players Theatre.

Audience members enjoyed the evenings performance by Peninsula Players veteran company members Cassandra Bissell (“Around the World in 80 Days”); Neil Brookshire (“The 39 Steps”); McKinley Carter (“The Game’s Afoot,”); Amy Ensign (“Who am I this Time (& Other Conundrums of Love”)); Anne Herring (“Go Back for Murder”); Maggie Kettering (“Outside Mullingar,”); James Krag (“Witness for the Prosecution”); Chad Luberger (“The Who and the What”); Mark Moede (“The Hollow,”) and Greg Vinkler (“Alabama Story”). Bissell performed the role of Miss Holmes and Kettering Dr. Watson.

“Audiences have been very supportive of the winter play reading series since its inception,” said Brian Kelsey, Peninsula Players Managing Director. “Each event has been close to room capacity with some attendees joining us from as far away as Green Bay for these special performances. We are grateful for the support of the foundations and organizations who helped fund this programing for our community. We are thrilled the public enjoys the experience of the readings and appreciates the performances of the talented casts Artistic Director Greg Vinkler assembles. We are looking forward to next winter!”

The Play’s the Thing 2017 season was funded in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin, as well as generous grants from the Door County Community Foundation, Door County Medical Center, Friends of Door County Libraries and operating funds from Peninsula Players Theatre.
