Hallelujah for Valley Performers on stage

A FEISTY group of women from the small town of Wattle Flat decide life is too short and after the sudden death of a dear friend they vow to change their lives and achieve their dreams.

Valley Performers’ next production, The Hallelujah Girls, is by the same writers of the hit TV series The Golden Girls.

With only five weeks until the curtain goes up, the cast of eight is in full rehearsal fine-tuning their roles.

The play revolves around a group of good female friends and the story unfolds with plenty of laughter and wit.

Lee Thompkins decides to reach for her elusive star by converting an old church into a day spa. Spa Dee Dah is born and the fun begins thanks to Lee’s closest friends Carlene, Nita, Mavis and Crystal. The comic tension mounts when Lee’s old high school boyfriend Bob shows up and Bunny, Lee’s life-long treacherous rival, vows to steal the building from her.

This play reminds us of the importance of good friends and of not taking life so seriously we forget to laugh and love.

This Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy will be staged by Valley Performers at Nambucca Community & Arts Centre on the last two weekends in August with two Friday performances at 7.30pm, and matinees on the two Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm.

Tickets available now at www.tickethost.com.au adults $20, concession $15 or at Matilda St Gallery Mackswille, Helloworld Nambucca, and at the door.
