Step into the world of the wild, wild, west and watch as women of the 1870’s make their way in life in a brothel. This comedy is sure to entertain. From the superb costumes, the excellent set, the professional delivery of the actors, and the quick witted comedy, Jenny’s House of Joy is sure to become a favorite. Director Jean Miller sheds light into the world of directing such a great work.

“Directing a Norm Foster play is very rewarding. Provided with the script alone-no set design or stage direction from previous productions- you are able to make it your own. Up front you work really hard on set design, stage direction and preliminary blocking that will enable your cast members to begin to envisage their roles right from the first rehearsal and make it easy for them to start developing their characters while they are still learning their lines and blocking. Then, as it all comes together you feel almost as if the great man himself personally put you in charge of interpreting his creative. So, it really is a good experience,” commented Miller, a semi-retired career writer in advertising and marketing copy and design in addition to ghost writing and having three published novels of her own. “I’m very grateful for all the enthusiasm shown by the cast and crew in making this the hit production of the season that all Shelburne should come and see!” commented a very proud Miller.

Clearly the town of Shelburne will reap the benefit of talent, professionalism and ultimate entertainment from start to finish as the Tipling Stage Company performs Norm Foster’s, Jenny’s House of Joy.
