Dear Family, Friends, and Fans,

Due to circumstances beyond our control, will will not be doing a musical this spring.  The companies we usually purchase the musicals from are in the middle of a HUGE merger (3 companies merging into 1) and unfortunately they don't have all their ducks in a row yet.  We have found a very comical play to perform for you in March.  Please know we will do our best to have another musical for your enjoyment this year.

Sincerely,

Dena Plant

GTL President

Synopsis

This riotous laugh-out-loud comedy proves growing old doesn’t mean growing feeble. It’s the 4th of July, and the women of Happy Meadows Nursing Home have independence in mind! They’re fed up with the rules, the regulations, and especially the food. When senior resident Holly receives a cry for help from her grandson, she rallies her comrades-in-arms and the women plot a break out. Will Holly and her friends succeed? Perhaps with some fireworks, a large can of creamed corn, and extensive lengths of rope, they might just have what it takes to outsmart the thoroughly vexed retirement home director.

Winner of the  2016 SETC/Stage Rights Ready to Publish Award.
