"The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase" Presented by the Kings Players

 by Cynthia Maxwell

Season 2022 at The Kings Players in Hanford is up and running. The first on the list is The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase – a comedy by Pat Cook and directed by Cyndie Maxwell.

Uncle George invites his whole family for a weekend at his rustic cabin. Just as they are about to leave, having ingested who-knows-what for dinner, he reveals there is $500K hidden on the property somewhere. Well, perhaps they are not in such a rush to leave after all. What follows is a crazy combination of pettiness and greed! But, who will find the money? This and all our shows this season are appropriate for the entire family.

Kings Players is excited to welcome two brand new thespians. Pini Etchegoin will be playing George’s sister Mamie Jo who is somewhat of a bossy little thing and, of course, sarcastic a bit. Chelsey, played by Kelsie Nichols, is a young girl who is dragged unwillingly to the cabin by her parents and just knows it will be sooooo boring. Both Pini and Kelsie claim to be having a great time and are portraying their characters wonderfully.

Kris Szovati from Visalia is an accomplished singer and actress, but new to Kings Players. She plays the other sarcastic sister Margaret. Abby Mattos and Evelyn Swift are back to Kings Players after performing when they were much younger. Kids, actually! Our play also features folks you have seen on our stage before. There is Stephan DesJardins, Mike Barker, and Joseph Katz as Uncle George.
