Have some laughs with ‘The Hal­lelu­jah Girls’

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - ARTS - STAFF RE­PORT

Af­ter the loss of a dear friend, five women re­al­ize time is pre­cious, and if they’re go­ing to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to get on with it now!

Hi­lar­ity abounds when these feisty fe­males of Eden Falls, Ge­or­gia, de­cide to shake up their lives in “The Hal­lelu­jah Girls.” The Ring­gold Play­house will present seven per­for­mances of the com­edy be­gin­ning tonight, Sept. 13, through Satur­day, Sept. 22. The com­edy is di­rected by Ron­ald King.

The ac­tion in this rol­lick­ing South­ern com­edy takes place in Spa-Dee-Dah, the aban­doned church-turned-day-spa where this group of friends gath­ers ev­ery Fri­day af­ter­noon.

Sugar Lee, the group’s high-spir­ited, de­ter­mined leader, has her hands full keep­ing the women mo­ti­vated. Car­lene’s given up on ro­mance, hav­ing buried three hus­bands. Nita’s a ner­vous wreck from run­ning in­ter­fer­ence be­tween her prob­lem­atic son and his pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer.

Mavis’s mar­riage is so stag­nant she’s won­der­ing how she can fake her own death to get out of it. And sweet, sim­ple Crys­tal en­ter­tains them all, singing Christ­mas car­ols with her own hi­lar­i­ous lyrics.

The comic ten­sion mounts when a sexy ex-boyfriend shows up un­ex­pect­edly, a mar­riage pro­posal comes from an un­likely suitor and Sugar Lee’s arch ri­val vows she’ll stop at noth­ing to steal the spa away from her.

“The Hal­lelu­jah Girls” cast in­cludes Kim­berly Tyner Jones, Kitty Reel, Kim Jenk­ins, Aleatha Plott, Alice Car­baugh, Re­becca Lapp, David Dunn and Josh Adler.

Tick­ets may be pur­chased at Ring­gold City Hall, by phone at 706935-3061 or on­line at Ci­tyOfRing­goldGa.gov.
