Ring in the new year with an evening of laughs and a toast to this joyful comedy at The Naples Players! In Blackburn Hall from Jan. 12 – Feb. 6, The Savannah Sipping Society follows four strong Southern women, each recovering from unexpected bumps in the road, who are drawn together by fate and a spontaneous happy hour.
Workaholic Randa (Kristin Cassidy) is reeling from a sudden career derailment, only to realize she has no life outside of work.
Dot (Peggy Monson), who had big plans for a blissful retirement with her husband, faces the unsettling reality of starting a new life alone after his passing. Good ol’ Texas gal, Marlafaye (Ruth Johnson), blows into town after losing her husband to a twenty-three year old dental hygienist. Last but not least, bold and spirited Jinx (Gerrie Benzig), offers to be life coach to the other three women without realizing that she is in fact the one in most need of wise advice.
On their journey to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost over the years, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Sponsored by Gulf Coast International Properties, this uplifting show is filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment.
CEO/artistic director Bryce Alexander says, “Audiences will find humor and relatability in this show that highlights the strength and resilience of women at all stages of life. I’m thrilled to highlight the talent of these actors as they bring you on a journey filled with joy and self discovery.”
The production is directed by Betty Nordstrom with stage management by Jules Branche, costume design by Mollie LaTorre, lighting design by Davis Parker, scenic design by Sadie Ward, and sound design by Matthew Birchmeier.
Regular price tickets are $47 per person and flex season ticket holders can purchase additional tickets at $35. A red carpet event open to the public is slated for Wednesday, Jan. 12 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. and features local vendors, food, drinks, and live music from the band Chariot.
