‘Charitable Sisterhood’ comedy takes RCT stage


Rome Community Theater, Upper Turin Road, will present “The Charitable Sisterhood of the Second Trinity Victory Church” two weekends — 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 10 and 11, and Dec. 17 and 18, as well as two 2:30 p.m. matinees Sunday, Dec. 12 and 19.

Written by Bo Wilson, the show is directed by Laurie Marshall, assisted by student Intern Kelsey Zimmerman. Set design is by John Frank, with lights and sound design by Mike Sharp.

The roads are flooded, the bridges are washed out, and less generous souls are staying safely indoors, but it takes more than a little rain to keep the ladies of the Charitable Sisterhood of the Second Trinity Victory Church from fulfilling their sworn mission.

Bea Littleton (Janet Hanna) is the pastor’s wife; Lorraine Jensen (Kirstin Walker) is the tireless mother of nine; Tina Yates (Michaela Kennedy) is the transplanted Yankee; and Janet Murchison (Melissa Brass Maggio) is the newest arrival.

When these ladies meet to organize a relief effort for homeless Guatemalans, they are greeted with a small mountain of community donations, but one woman’s junk is another woman’s treasure, and that pile of stuff in this little church basement is hiding a thing or two.

The rest of the cast includes Mel Maneen (Riley Reynolds), Adrian Maggio (WRSN Radio DJ) and TJ Phister (Deputy Shorter). Produced by Barb Seaton, the play is
presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing of Woodstock, Ill.

Admission is $15, $10 for ages 17 and under.

For tickets, call 315-337-5920, or go online to http://www.tktassistant.com/Tix/?u=RCT.

During the show Rome Community Theater will accept donations for the Rescue Mission of paper products, including toilet paper, paper towels Kleenex, pump hand soap, bath towels,
washcloths, toothpaste, toothbrushes, diapers (any size), feminine hygiene products, gift cards and cash.
