The divas are back! Dynamite Dames is the creation of local playwrights Liz Auston and Conrad Boyce, originally performed in 2004 and one of SCS’s most-requested musicals. Get ready for 2 hours of dynamite performances as the divas and show-stopping hits jkeep on coming! At its heart Dynamite Dames celebrates the spirit of women. For years Jane has lovingly dedicated herself to the wants and needs of a wonderful husband and two nearly-grown kids. A promising performer in a past-life, her only singing engagements in recent years were those during tub time when the kids were little and her dramatic repertoire rests solidly with “Good Night Moon”. When a local theatre troupe shockingly earns first-dibs at staging a huge Broadway mega-hit — with lots of great roles for women — Jane musters the courage to squelch self-doubt and audition for the show. But Jane is not alone in wanting to shake free of a familiar role, as she is joined by a multitude of over-qualified, talented women who seem to share in a similar dream.
Dames Night – Friday April 5th at 7pm – Come as your favourite Broadway Diva (or Divo) and join us for delicious eats and light beverages before the curtain rises. After the show, stick around to meet the cast and chat with the creators of Dynamite Dames as well as members of the original 2004 cast… a fun night! (Licensed event, ages 19 years of age and over)
