In Her Own Fashion
WRITTEN & TOLD BY DOLORES HYDOCK
MAY 6, 7, 8, & 9 —2021
They finally let me out of the basement.” So begins the true story of Ninette Griffith, Fashion Coordinator for Loveman’s Department Store in Birmingham, AL, in the 1950s and 1960s. Griffith, a Birmingham native with a silk-and-chiffon Southern accent and a brass-and-iron spirit was funny, irreverent, ambitious, and unflinchingly honest. This elegantly independent woman lived a life that followed no one else’s pattern; a life that unfolds in these stories of reckless romance, celebrity hi-jinks, fashion disasters, and heartbreaking loss. Actress and storyteller Dolores Hydock brings these funny, tender, surprising stories to life on the stage in "...an exquisite evening of theatre."
The Savannah Sipping Society
BY JESSIE JONES, NICHOLAS HOPE, & JAMIE WOOTEN
DIRECTED BY KATHRYN WOOD
JULY 15, 16, 17, & 18 —2021
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. The Savannah Sipping Society is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
Smoke on the Mountain

MUSICAL ARRANGEMENTS BY MIKE CRAVER & MARK HARDWICK
DIRECTED BY KIM MASON
DECEMBER 2, 3, 4, & 5 —2021 (originally scheduled in 2020)
Smoke on the Mountain tells the story of a Saturday Night Gospel Sing at a country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains in 1938. Pastor Oglethorpe, the young and enthusiastic minister of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, has enlisted the Sanders Family in his efforts to bring his tiny congregation into “the modern world.” Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of a congregation who wants to be inspired by their songs, one thing after another goes awry and they reveal their true, and hilariously imperfect, natures. By the evening’s end, the Sanders Family has endeared themselves to us by revealing their weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs. Smoke on the Mountain is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
