Girls Nite Out Productions will present The Hallelujah Girls October 6-9 at The Black Box Theatre at Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington. The show, which will be holding open auditions in May, is being produced by Jennifer Warwick and directed by Carole Vasta Folley.
Written by the team that penned the Golden Girls TV show, Hallelujah Girls guarantees lots of laughs. Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide to shake up their lives. 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. After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious and if they’re going to change their lives they have to get on it now. But Sugar Lee, their high-spirited, determined leader, has her hands full keeping the women motivated. 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, Bunny, vows she’ll stop at nothing to steal the spa away. By the time the women rally together to overcome these obstacles and launch their new, improved lives, you’ve got a side-splitting, joyful comedy that will make you laugh out loud and shout “Hallelujah!”
