The Savannah Sipping Society, a laugh out loud comedy, has a new look at the Center des arts from August 19 until August 28.
When Covid-19 hit, the Center moved its indoor live theater performances to outdoor venues. But, like many things in 2020 and 2021, things didn’t quite go to plan.
“The Savannah Sipping Society, which debuted in May 2021 in Cannonsburgh Village, was our first attempt at an adult outdoor theater production since the shutdown,” said Patience Long, General Manager. “We had sold all the performances of The Savannah Sipping Society but, due to weather, canceled the final shows, which was a huge disappointment for ticket holders, cast and crew.
The Centre’s current season, which has returned to indoor shows, includes many shows originally scheduled for 2020.
“Due to all the changes and restructurings of our 2020 season, we had the opportunity to add this hilarious spectacle,” said Mark David Williams, Artistic Director. “It was such a hit with audiences and didn’t get the full airing, so I knew we had to bring it back. It’s one of the funniest scripts I’ve ever read.
Tickets start at $16 and are currently on sale at boroarts.orgby calling 615-904-ARTS (2787), or at the Center for the Arts Box Office, 110 West College Street, in downtown Murfreesboro.
Described as The golden girls meets steel magnolias, game functions four unique Southern women, all of whom need to escape the similarity of their daily routines, who are brought together by fate – and an impromptu happy hour – and decide it’s high time to rekindle their enthusiasm for life that they have lost over the years. Hilarity ensues as they encourage each other to try new things like salsa dancing and role playing.
The Savannah Sipping Society is rated PG-13 and from Friday August 19 to Sunday August 28.
