The Key Players hosted community members to a free theater, song and dance show at its Open House Aug. 23 at the Key Largo Lions Club. The volunteer thespians gave guests a preview of the upcoming entertainment season.

The season kicks off Oct. 2-4 and Oct. 16-18 at the Murray Nelson Cultural Center, mile marker 103 bayside in Key Largo, with three one-act plays: A Mad Breakfast; The Bathroom Door and Three Tables, all light-hearted according to Key Players vice president Jonelle Kop.

Tickets for performances are available at the door as well as at a few area businesses, PostNet in Islamorada and Shear Paradise and The UPS Store in Key Largo.

In November, Jon Peterson plays George M, an upbeat one-man play about song-and-dance man, George M. Cohan. It was so popular the previous time it played in Key Largo, Peterson has been invited back to delight audiences again.

In January and February 2015, the musical, Nunsense Jamboree, with three talented vocalists highlights a wacky nun who pursues her goal of being a country singer. Funny and fast-paced, this is the continuation of Nunsense I and II.

To close the winter season, Red, White and Tuna, a comedy, plays at the Lions Club April 29 and in May. Red, White and Tuna portrays a small town in Texas as residents and visitors convene for a high school reunion and celebrate the Fourth of July.
