Our 2019 Season!
Savannah Sipping Society
By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten.
Performances February 15 – March 3, 2019
Four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. From the same authors that have brought such classics to the stage as The Red Velvet Cake War, Dearly Departed and Dixie Swim Club.
100 Years of Broadway
Arranged by Mac Huff – Hal Leonard Corporation.
Auditions February 25-26
Performances April 26-May 12, 2019
Celebrate the history of Broadway and the heritage of musical theater. From the music of Tin Pan Alley to state-of-the-art contemporary Broadway, you’ll treasure the magic of an entire century of drama, laughter and beautiful music!
An Ideal Husband
by Oscar Wilde.
Auditions March 25-26
Performances June 14-June 30, 2019
For Lady Chiltern, her marriage is predicated on her having an "ideal husband"—that is, a model spouse in both private and public life that she can worship: thus Sir Robert must remain unimpeachable in all his decisions. Sir Robert complies with the lady's wishes and apparently seals his doom. A classic comedy of suspense and intrigue in the “polite” upper echelon of British society.
The Elephant Man
by Bernard Pomerance.
Auditions June 17-18
Performances August 9-August 25, 2019
Based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man – victim of rare skin and bone diseases – he becomes the star freak attraction in traveling sideshows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London’s prestigious Whitechapel Hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati, only to be denied his ultimate dream – to become a man like any other.
by Julien Wiles.
Auditions Sept 30 - Oct 1
Performances November 22-24, December 6-15
Mix together a batch of fruitcakes, three dozen Christmas trees, 10,000 outdoor Christmas lights, a chicken pox epidemic, two southern spinsters, an estranged old man, a lost cat named Tutti Frutti and a Christmas hog named Buster and you've got the recipe for a fun-filled and touching evening of holiday cheer. Into this world comes Jamie, a kid who has run away from home and come as far as his money will take him. At first he thinks this town's inhabitants are "nuttier than fruitcakes," but soon he comes to admire, appreciate and adore this nutty little town. A moving story of alienation, understanding and reconciliation, FrUiTCaKeS provides audiences with a heaping helping of holiday warmth and Christmas cheer.
