ABOUT: "Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins" will be presented by the Village Theatre Guild. It's a comedy with music based on the real-life story of the wealthy society eccentric who believed she was a great operatic soprano, when, in fact, she couldn't sing in tune. Nonetheless, she sold out Carnegie Hall in 1944. "Souvenir" is an amusing and tender story told through the eyes of Cosme McMoon, Florence's accompanist. The show features Doug Orlyk as Cosme and Christine Pfenninger as Florence.
