“Four Old Broads”, Comedy Production – Old Town Players Theatre
August 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – August 16, 2020 @ 3:00 pm
The Old Town Players Theatre will present Four Old Broads, a hilarious comedy play on August 14, 15 and 16. *Show times are Friday and Saturday, 7:00pm and Sunday, 3:00pm. Here is a snapshot of the play: Retired burlesque queen Beatrice Shelton desperately needs a vacation – and NOT another trip up to Helen, Georgia to see that “precious little German village for the umpteenth time.” A Sassy Seniors Cruise through the Caribbean may be just the ticket if she can just convince her best friend, Eaddy Mae Clayton, to stop praying and go with her. Unfortunately, things have not been very pleasant at Magnolia Place Assisted Living since Nurse Pat Jones began working there. The newest resident, Imogene Fletcher, is suddenly losing her memory. Maude Jenkins is obsessed with her favorite soap opera and planning her own funeral. Sam Smith, retired Elvis impersonator, keeps trying to bed every woman in the building. A mystery unfolds with laughter as the gals try to outsmart the evil Nurse Pat Jones and figure out why so many residents have been moved to “the dark side,” what exactly IS that mysterious pill, and what happened to Doctor Head? Hilarity ensues as Imogene goes undercover and Maude enters the Miss Magnolia Senior Citizen Pageant to throw Pat off their trail. If they can solve the mystery, they may make it to the cruise ship after all. Tickets will be sold at the door beginning one hour before show time. *Four Old Broads will be performed again on August 21, 22 and 23. NOTE: Both weekends have been rescheduled from the previous dates of August 7, 8 and 9 and August 14, 15 and 16.
