Bonnie CruzelleMyram, TNRD Director for Area ‘O’, presented a cheque for $500 to the Thompson Valley Players (TVP) last week.  Accepting the cheque was TVP rep Bev Murphy, who said the funds would go towards the group’s youth program.  TV Players are currently putting together their annual Mothers Day production.  This year, the three night event will include two one act action packed comedies. “The Babysitter’s Story” by Peter Lancaster Walker will take you on an adventure with a reluctant babysitter and a menacing cat burglar. Then the Red Hot Mommas are back with the play “At The Border” by Bob Wilkins, a story of a town hall with the border running through the middle of the office.

The group is also gearing up to host a talent event at the Barriere Bandshell, which will be a series of talent competitions for all ages with lots of great prizes!

The youth division of TVP will be will be performing in their own production coming in July.
