Frank and Mary Settles were planning to move from Louisville to Missouri, where they would purchase a farm and raise a family. But when Frank left Mary and the children at Pleasant hill to get the farm, he never returned.  She taught at Pleasant Hill for 27 years and was the last member to live there.  Janet Scott will portray Mary Settles.  Scott is the co-founder of Lexington’s highly-acclaimed theatre group On the Verge. 

She served as director of a senior citizens’ acting workshop and is a graduate of Columbia University.  She taught professional acting in New York City for 30 years.  Don’t miss this program, which was funded in part by the Kentucky Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Refreshments will be served following the program.  There is no charge but we need you to register at 845-2811 so that we will have adequate seating and refreshments.
