Ladies of Harmony opens Friday

Published 10:34 am Thursday, April 7, 2016

Davie County Arts Council’s Brock Players will open on Friday, April 8 at 7 p.m. with the  spring comedy, “The Ladies of Harmony.”

The play, written by Ron Hill and directed by Lauren Butler, has six women meeting at a church  fellowship hall to prepare a meal for a family of man who has past away. Prior to them meeting, the church custodian has instructions to set-up the tables for the meal and to make coffee for the ladies.  He makes the coffee but spikes it with his beverage of choice.

As the ladies drink the coffee the play gets funnier as you learn not only how much they disliked the dearly departed but get an in-depth look into the ladies and their past.

The cast includes area actors who have been in previous productions and one who is new to the stage.

The church custodian is played by Bill Campbell. “The Ladies” include: Nancy Preston Cherry, Andrea Cornatzer, Trudy Golding, Shannon Grimes, Lisa Matthews, and Judy Phillips.

There will be six performances:  April 8, 9, 15, and 16 at 7 p.m. and on April 10 and 17 at 3 p.m. Reserved seating can be purchased online at or by contacting the box office (Monday-Friday noon-5 p.m.) at 751-3000.  Ticket prices are:  adult, $15; and seniors, $13.
