        Stanley Nichols is a successful writer of children’s stories under the pen name of “Grandma Letty.” When he is voted “Grandmother of the Year,” his house is suddenly besieged by reporters and photographers.
        Afraid that exposure as a juvenile fiction author will jeopardize the chances of his serious new novel, Stanley has to produce a Grandma. After all else fails, he impersonates the lady.

        The staff includes stage manager Dru Clementz, tech director Jennifer Kingry, and light and sound operator Mike Skiles, all of Geneseo; and costumer Jean Melillo of Atkinson.
        Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays the doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 pm. Sundays are 3 p.m. matinees with the doors opening at 2 p.m. (please note new matinee time on Sundays.)  Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling the Richmond Hill box office at 944-2244 or by visiting their website at www.rhplayers.com.
