The Hallelujah Girls   Performances:      April 27, 28,  May 4,5, 2012
by:     Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten   Directed By:     Betty Baute, with Elyse McGill
    Produced By:    Kathleen Baute, with Frank Wittenbring

 

After the sudden death of a dear friend, a feisty group of women from the town of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide that life is indeed short, and they vow to change their lives and achieve their dreams.  Sugar Lee Thompkins decides to reach for her elusive star by converting an abandoned church into a day spa.   The SPA-DEE-DAH is born, and the fun begins thanks to Sugar Lee’s dear friends Carlene, Nita, Mavis and Crystal.  The comic tension mounts when Sugar Lee’s old high school boyfriend (Bobby Dwayne) shows up, and Sugar Lee’s life-long rival (Bunny) vows she’ll stop at nothing to steal the spa building, (which may house a surprising secret), away from Sugar Lee.  “The Hallelujah Girls” is one of those silly, rollicking shows that our audiences love.  It reminds us of the importance of good friends, and of not taking life so seriously that we forget to laugh and love.
