If you’re looking for a place to see a thought-provoking performance, check out the Fort Thomas Woman’s Club where the organization’s mission is to “create and maintain an organized center of thought and action among the woman members for the promotion of social, educational, literacy and artistic growth and to promote these interests in relation to the City of Fort Thomas.”
The history of the Fort Thomas Woman’s Club dates back to the early 1900s. The first president of the club was Mrs. Murray R. Hubbard. Today, the club’s president is Ginger Paul, who continues to fulfill its mission.
While the season has been alive and strong since September and will be wrapping up in May, you still have time to catch a show, according to Valeria Amburgey, Publicity Chair for the Village Players of Fort Thomas, a department of the Fort Thomas Woman’s Club. “Typically, our season includes three shows and a Children’s Show in December,” explains Amburgey. “The last show of the season typically includes a charity benefit and the profits from the spring show are donated to an identified charity.”
The current production is called “The Women” and it started on Feb. 20 and will finish up on Feb. 28. Amburgey says the season concludes with “Blood Relations” from April 17 through April 25 and will benefit the Hoxworth Blood Center.
“The Women” is a classic comedy follows a Manhattan socialite who recently discovered her husband is having an affair. After her friends turn out to be less than helpful, the show proves to be a hilarious, satirical look into the lives of “the ladies who lunch” and the world that determines their behavior.
