The Girls of the Garden Club

Directed by Carla Crandall

Performances

September 23, 24, 30; October 1, 2, 7, 8, 9

Storyline

Come join us for an hilarious play by “one of theatre’s leading writers of comedies which, as the title suggests, deals with the indomitable ladies whose lives revolve around the often outlandish doings of the local garden club. “GIRLS” is a delight because it reflects reality. For every comic characterization onstage you can recall someone in your own life as a double offstage”. - Chronicle-Telegram

Storyline

It’s four days before Christmas in the tiny town of Tinsel, Texas, where it’s Christmas 24/7, 365 days a year. Enter a colorful parade of eccentric guests that arrive at the Snowflake Inn and deck the halls with holiday hilarity, including a couple of self-involved actors from a lower-than-low-budget touring production of “A Christmas Carol,” who descend on the Inn to fulfill a promise. Add to this Yuletide mayhem is an ill-advised romantic rendezvous, a demanding guest who refuses to leave, a tipsy housekeeper, and a spur-of-the-moment wedding. This comedy will have you laughing ‘til your sides ache.

Storyline

This high-energy comedy centers around Charlie, a hopelessly shy Englishman, who is on a reluctant holiday in a lodge in rural Georgia. He is desperately afraid of personal interaction, so his friend concocts a story, telling the locals that Charlie is from a faraway foreign country and doesn’t speak a word of English. Charlie feels obliged to playact the part of the “exotic foreigner,” which leads to many complications as he overhears more than he should – and fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play as he becomes more and more involved in the bizarre goings-on.

Please Note: The Foreigner is rated PG-13. Some thematic elements and language might not be suitable for younger children.
