Excitement fills the room moments before the curtain rises on The Lee Players Variety Show!

PENNINGTON GAP – Our friends and neighbors in the Lee Players theater troupe delighted audiences gathered at the Lee Theatre in downtown Pennington Gap this past Friday and Saturday night as the troupe put on The Lee Players Variety Show. This show was tons of fun, and it featured something for everyone. Live music, vocal performances, and sketch comedy made up the show in a vein similar to the “Lee Haw” show of past years.

The Lee Players are Lee County’s own community theater troupe. It is made up of neighbors from all over the county, with lots of different talents. The Lee Players are always actively looking for new folks to join them. Why not YOU?

To get more information about The Lee Players, including about how to join, all you have to do is send an e-mail community@leedaily.com expressing your interest or listing your question(s). If you have always wanted to explore the world of the stage, this could be a great opportunity.
