Come on Down to the Spa Dee Dah!
The Catskill Community Players present the rollicking Southern Comedy, “The Hallelujah Girls,” by Jones, Hope and Wooten, June 6th and 7th at 8pm, and June 9th at 2pm, at the Worcester Wieting Theatre, in conjunction with a Theatre Dinner at the Worcester Inn. There is an additional 3:00 pm matinee Dinner Theater on Sunday, June 15th at the Foothills Performing Arts Center. Gary Koutnik is directing this comedy with Kyra Wehmeyer as Stage Manager.
Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia decide to shake up their lives. After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious, and if they’re going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to “get on it now!” The vivacious Sugar Lee, played by Linda Reese, impulsively decides to buy an abandoned church and turn it into a Day Spa, the SPA-DEE-DAH. The hilarity begins around this group of friends, played by local actors Kristin Sloth (as Carlene the “Black Widow” of Eden Falls), Diane Stammel (as Nita, a repressed housewife hooked on Romance novels), Laurie Wehmeyer (as Mavis, the sardonic woman who finds her inner Goddess), Diane Geerkin (as Crystal, the wacky singing receptionist), Abbey Koutnik (as Bunny Sutherland and Sugar Lee’s arch rival), and Dr. Ben Friedell (playing Porter Padgett, the too-energetic would-be-suitor).
Will Sugar Lee resolve her differences with her ex-boyfriend, Bobby Dwayne (played by Tom Schimmerling) and get back together with him after 30 years of misunderstandings? Most anything and everything surely happens in this fast-paced show with 36 costume changes, 110 props and a whole lot of L-O-V-E. Parental Guidance is recommended for Children under 12.
