Cast Announced For Series Finale

Actors Emiley Kiser and Nick Trengove, under the direction of Artistic Director Linda Fortunato, will present Last Train to Nibroc, by Arlene Hutton, Peninsula Players Theatre’s final play reading of its 2024 “The Play’s The Thing” series.

In Last Train to Nibroc, May and Raleigh meet in 1940 on an eastbound train from California and discover they are both from Kentucky. This funny and touching boy-meets-girl period romance follows the couple over time as they search for happiness and what their hearts truly desire. 

 Hutton’s masterful storytelling has garnered widespread acclaim, drawing comparisons to the cinematic storytelling of Frank Capra and the literary prowess of Pulitzer Prize Laureate William Inge. She was twice honored as the Tennessee Williams Fellow in Playwriting at the University of the South and a William Inge Fellow in Kansas. Last Train to Nibroc – the first installment of Hutton’s The Nibroc Trilogy – was nominated for Best Play by the New York Drama League in 2000. 

The reading will be Trengove’s Peninsula Players Theatre debut. Kiser debuted in last season’s Trying by Joanna McClelland Glass.

Last Train to Nibroc will be performed on Monday, April 1, at 7 pm at Björklunden. There is no admission fee, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Donations are welcome. 

Björklunden is located at 7590 Boynton Lane in Baileys Harbor.
