CHAUTAUQUA PLAYHOUSE reopens with
“The Savannah Sipping Society”
Chautauqua Playhouse will reopen the theatre with the comedy “The Savannah Sipping Society” by Jones, Hope and Wooten, beginning on May 28, 2021 at the Playhouse. The show will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm through June 27. Because of current state mandates, seating will be limited to 15 audience members per performance, with masks and proof of vaccination requested. The auditorium will be sanitized and distanced seating will be in place. As requirements are lifted, capacity for this show may increase. The performances are held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $25. No discounts will be given for this show.
THE STORY: 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. So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers!” to this joyful and surprisingly touching Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy!
The direction is by Warren Harrison, set and light design by Andrew Fiffick. The cast features Margaret Morneau, Patricia Lee Schmeltz, Jody Klemens, and Nanette Michael Rice.
