About the show:
Polly Porter...famous 1970’s gospel singer of the group POLLY PORTER & THE PRAISE HIS NAME SINGERS, has died. Her daughter Caroline has come home to Savannah, GA to pack up Miss Polly’s house…but there is just one little problem (or two or three) Miss Polly was an extreme hoarder of epic proportions…Caroline’s useless siblings are MIA…and her three best friends from high school, former co-cheerleaders, have all shown up…UNANNOUNCED! Lizzy now owns the Miss Georgia Belle Pageantry system; Donna Jo is the local community theatre diva and Becca is having a late in life geriatric pregnancy with baby number five. The Gospel music plays and the margaritas pour…as the four ladies laugh, cry, scream and come together to pack up Miss Polly’s house, heal old wounds and make new plans for the future.

The Nutcracker

Auditions for "The Nutcracker" will be held on September 24, 2022 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. This is a play and not a ballet so you don't have to know how to dance. Come to the audition with a current picture, and a list of any schedule conflicts between the date of the audition and the last day of the show. Normally rehearsals are held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights. Everybody doesn't rehearse every night. No prepared material is required for the audition.
