Have some laughs with ‘The Hallelujah Girls’
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.
