Stagehands: ‘The Hallelujah Girls’ opens Friday

Be prepared for a fantastic side-splitting play about five feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia who decide to shake up their boring lives.

According to the synopsis of the play, “The action in this boisterous 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 and achieve their dreams, they have to get on it now! But Sugar Lee, their high-spirited, determined leader, has her hands full keeping the women motivated. Carlene’s given up on romance, having buried three husbands. Nita’s a nervous wreck from running interference between her problematic son and his probation officer. Mavis’ marriage is so stagnant, she’s wondering how she can fake her death to get out of it. And sweet, simple Crystal entertains them all, singing Christmas carols with her hilarious lyrics.

“The comic tension mounts when a sexy ex-boyfriend shows up unexpectedly, a marriage proposal comes from an unlikely suitor and Sugar Lee’s archrival vows she’ll stop at nothing to steal the spa away from her. 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!”

“It’s a funny play with good humor,” said co-director Shot Sistrunk of Colusa’s Stagehands theater group.

Following their successful 2016 performance of “The Dixie Swim Club,” Sistrunk discovered “The Hallelujah Girls” by the same authors: Jamie Wooten, Jessie Jones, and Nicholas Hope.

“We had a blast doing ‘The Dixie Swim Club’ and was excited to find another similar play,” said Sistrunk.

“The Hallelujah Girls” are scheduled to begin a two-week performance Nov. 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, and 17, at Stagehands Theater in the Colusa County Fairgrounds. The show will open at 6:30 PM with the show beginning at 7:15 PM during each day.

A matinée performance will be held Nov. 5, with doors opening at 1:30 PM and show beginning at 2:15 PM.

Tickets are $8 each and can be purchased at Messick Ace Hardware in Colusa. The play is co-directed by Shot Sistrunk and Nicole Helms-Lunsford.
