“Cole” is a revue based on the words and music of Cole Porter.
Devised by Benny Green and Alan Strachan
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
The opening show of the 61st season was dedicated in Memory to Ron Smith. Ron was a past president and trustee of the Community Players. A lover of music and the arts, Mr. Smith understood the spirit of the word “community” and shared that spirit with the Community Players.
The 1983-1984 season expanded to six productions: two musicals, two comedies, a drama and a children’s show. “Cole” was the first time that Players had done a musical revue. It was also Jane Thomley’s first opportunity to direct a musical.
