The Hallelujah Girls

by Jones, Hope and WootenHalleluah Girls Sam Bass COmmunity Theatre
September 21 - October 13
Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide to shake up their lives. The action in this rollicking 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! By the time these women rally together to overcome their 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". By Jesse Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten(they also wrote Christmas Belles, Dixie Swim Club and Dashing Through the Snow)

You may have seen A Christmas Carol before but never like this! Adapted for the stage by Phil Grecian from the novella by Charles Dickens

It Could Be Any One of Us
by Alan AyckbournIt Could Be Any One of Us Alan Ayckbourn
February 8 - March 2
Tickets on-line

A thunderstorm! In a windswept country house a family of failures wrangles over a will: a detective who has never solved a case; a writer, an artist and a composer whose works have never been published, shown or performed, and a dysfunctional teenager. These are the prime ingredients for a murder mystery… but this diversion is by British Master of Comedy Alan Ayckbourne and it has a number of surprises. The victim is not who it should be and the thrills are leavened with tongue in cheek humor and ironic comment¦. And one more twist: The murderer changes with every performance! By Alan Ayckbourn

Death and the Maiden
by Ariel DorfmanAriel Dorfman Death and the Maiden Sam Bass Communityh Theatre
March 22 - March 30
Tickets on-line

Ariel Dorfman's explosively provocative, award-winning drama is set in a country that has only recently returned to democracy. Gerardo Escobar has just been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime when his car breaks down and he is picked up by the humane doctor Roberto Miranda. But in the voice of this good Samaritan, Gerardo's wife, Paulina Salas, thinks she recognizes another man—the one who raped and tortured her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before. By Ariel Dorfman

The Secret Garden/Yellow Boat
Secret Garden Yellow Boat Sam Bass Community TheatreMay 8 - June 8
Tickets on-line

The Yellow Boat is a glorious affirmation of a child's life and the strength and courage of all children. David and Sonja Saar's son, Benjamin, was a uniquely gifted visual artist. Benjamin's buoyant imagination transformed his physical and emotional pain into a blaze of colors and shapes in his fanciful drawings and paintings. An enchanting classic, The Secret Garden, is the story of 11 year old orphan Mary Lennox who returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate's wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children in this compelling tale of forgiveness. Secret Garden by Pamela Sterling / The Yellow Boat by David Saar

Bugsy Malone

Busy Malone (image: Sam Bass Community Theatre)Book by Alan Parker with music and lyrics by Paul Williams
July 26 - August 7
Tickets on-line

A slapstick musical comedy, BUGSY MALONE follows the rivalry between two half-witted street gangs and the washed up, well-intentioned, one-time boxer who steps in to take control of Fat Sam's gang and give Dandy Dan and his boys what they've got coming. In this film noir spoof, the message is one of good, clean fun; the characters are wonderful 1920's cartoon cutouts; and the weapons of choice are "splurge" whip cream guns, flour bombs, and custard pies. Book by Alan Parker with music and lyrics by Paul Williams.
