Auditions will be held at the Rex Theatre, Sunday, February 23rd from 7pm to 9pm and Tuesday, February 25th from 7pm to 9pm. If needed, we’ll have a third night of auditions on Thursday, February 27th from 7pm to 9pm.

In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate – and an impromptu happy hour – and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment – and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.
4 women (ages are approximate & flexible)
(plus 1 non-speaking cameo role in Act I)
- Randa Covington: (49) a perfectionist, and workaholic
- Dot Haigler: (69) still reeling from her husband’s demise and loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement.
- Marlafaye Mosley: (57) earthy and boisterous, a good ol’ Texas Gal
- Jinx Jenkins: (53) a spunky ball of fire, new to town life coach
If you are more comfortable behind the curtain than on-stage, please consider signing up to build sets, run lights and sound. We are also looking for a stage manager/assistant to the director and ushers for the performances. There’s room for everyone in “The Savannah Sipping Society”!
