The ladies of the Harmony Church funeral committee are back for the hilarious sequel to “The Ladies of Harmony”.
The Town Hall Players’ (THP) next production, “Harmony Romances,” is a sequel to “The Ladies of Harmony” which THP performed in 2013. Directed by Larry Torrey and co-produced by Kris Webb and Barb Krusinski, “Harmony Romances” is sure to have one laughing once again as the Harmony church ladies funeral committee are presented a new task, planning a wedding for one of their own.
Webb describes this production as a side-splitter as the church ladies plan the wedding for church member Leah who is marrying Howard, a man she has not seen in years and has only communicated with by email or telephone. When Howard finally arrives in town, the ladies suspect he may be a demon or warlock as the liver spots on his hand forms a pentagon. To make matters worse, the ladies are to decorate the church in the bride’s chosen color scheme-varicose vein purple and bed pan white. The day of the wedding has Howard suffering from a major spastic colon flare up from the Mexican food he ate the night before at rehearsal dinner. It is up to the church ladies to get Howard out of the bathroom before he misses his own wedding!
“Ladies of Harmony” and “Harmony Romances” are written by Ron Hill of Big Dog/Norman Maine Publishing LLC in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Webb said this production features Barbara Krusinski in her final performance. Krusinski, a member with THP for eighteen years will be retiring and has moved from the area. Krusinski will be back in her role as Addie, for her final appearance.
