Reminder: Five Women Wearing the Same Dress opens Thursday

West Virginia Wesleyan College Department of Theatre & Dance production of Five Women Wearing the Same Dress opening this Thursday in Kresge hall in the Martin Religious Center on Wesleyan’s campus.

This show is guaranteed to give its viewers much to talk about after the show- not least of which is how little has changed in the last 25 years!

Alan Ball’s bittersweet 1993 comedy follows five bridesmaids during an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, as they hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.

Alan Ball has found his voice with “American Beauty” and “Six Feet Under,” but it is interesting to look back at this earlier work before Hollywood snapped him up.

The cast features WVWC students Faith Bell, Kari Conaway, Maya Eberhart, Taylor Pugh, Savannah Teter, and Brett Smith, as well as student designer Brandon Ulrich putting together the wedding apparel for the show- including some pretty funny- and typical- bridesmaids dresses and hats! The play is designed for the new space in Kresge in the basement of the Martin Religious Center by Keith Saine and directed by Greg Mach.

Performances are Thursday, 11/8, thru Saturday, 11/10, at 8pm, in Kresge Hall in the basement of the Martin Religious Center behind the chapel of WV Wesleyan College, with a Saturday matinee from 2-4pm. Tickets are available at the door at the price of $7 for general admission, $5 for seniors and students, and $3 with a Wesleyan ID.. Content is for MATURE AUDIENCES due to spicy language and frank discussion of sexual situations.
