The glitz and glamor of the Jazz Age lights up the stage at Danville’s Village Theater, where Role Players Ensemble is presenting “The Great Gatsby” through May 1.
Once again the RPE crew created miracles . . . Overall direction by Eric Fraisher Hayes produced a well-coordinated show that covered the wide-ranging tale with a quick series of linked scenes.
