The light-hearted comedy that stars "the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia, [who] decide to shake up their lives." The loss of a dear friend drives the women to to the realization that time is precious and if they're going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to get moving.
Norwalk resident Frank Gaffney directs the cast of six women and two men to deliver the laughs during January's cold days.
“It’s a funny, heartwarming play with lots of humor, wit, and a few zingers and is perfect to help beat back the post-holiday blues,” said Curtain Call executive director, Lou Ursone.
Featured in the cast are:
- from Norwalk: Carin Freidag and Ruth Lettera
- from Westport, husband and wife Marc Hartog and Cindy Hartog
- from Trumbull: Cathy Cordaro
- from Milford: Andrea Garmun
- from Wilton: Christina Richardson
- from Sandy Hook; Bob Hennessey
Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten and Jessie Jones authored the Hallelujah Girls, and were the same authors who authored one of last seasons most successful shows, Te Dixie Swim Club.
"After the success of last season’s The Dixie Swim Club, I thought it would be fun to do another of their shows—actually, one written prior to Dixie," Ursone said.
"I’m hoping ultimately what people will get out of this play is that life is never over until that last breath is drawn,” added Gaffney. “You still have a chance to do something different, do something fun—take up guitar, I don’t care, do something, learn something new because it’s what keeps you alive."
