July 8 & 9 at 7 pm in the Theater

Director Dennis Richards will hold auditions for "The Wild Women of Winedale" by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten on July 8 & 9, 2019 at 7 pm in the Thelma Moore Community Playhouse at 140 W. 5th Ave. in Garnett. This show will be performed September 5-9 & 13-15, 2019.


The Story

 This joyful and exuberant, yet ultimately touching, comedy focuses on the Wild sisters of Winedale, Virginia – Fanny and Willa and their frustratingly quirky sister-in-law, Johnnie Faye. This feisty and fun-loving trio has supported and cheered one another through the early demise of two of their husbands. 


They really need each other now as Fanny experiences a hilariously inappropriate reaction to her 60th birthday while Willa is so stressed-out from her nursing job she resorts to vodka and speed-knitting to cope, and Johnnie Faye desperately tries to find a man – preferably a man with a house - since hers is somewhere at the bottom of a Florida sinkhole. These women’s lives are further upended by the responsibility of caring for their free-spirited, ailing aunt and the realization that they are drowning under loads of family keepsakes and possessions nobody wants – especially them! 


With equal doses of hilarity and heart, these extraordinary women come up with delightful and surprisingly unorthodox ways to free themselves of what’s keeping them from moving their lives forward. They confidently set their sights on accepting nothing less than happiness while there’s still time to enjoy it. Together they prove it’s never too late to take another one of life’s paths for a grand new adventure.
