Aurora Theatre to present Southeastern regional premiere of Women in Jeopardy!, September 29–October 23!
“Thelma and Louise” meets “The First Wives Club” in uproarious comedy coming to the stage this fall
Friday, September 9, 2016 — Fun, flirtatious and filled with adventure, Women in Jeopardy! invites Atlanta audiences to play detective during its run at Aurora Theatre, September 29- October 23! Imaginations run wild in the Southeastern premiere of this lively tale of two divorcées on a mission to uncover hidden truths of their friend’s new peculiar dentist boyfriend when his assistant mysteriously goes missing. Does a dark past actually exist or will suspicions lead them on a wild goose chase? To “save” their best friend Liz, Mary and Jo trade in their wine glasses for a pair of spyglasses in this side-splitting comedy written by award-winning playwright Wendy MacLeod!
“One of the great things about Women in Jeopardy is its zany, relatable content,” said Kelly Criss, director. “At its foundation, it’s a story of three divorcées whose lives get turned upside-down when one of them finds companionship, albeit with an extremely eccentric dentist, which sets off a chain of events that result in hysterical antics. When watching the show, you can’t help but envision a neighbor, colleague or even family member who would do something crazy like Mary and Jo, which brings even more hilarity to the production, if that’s even possible.”
Under the direction of Criss, Women in Jeopardy! is brought to life by the innovative design team of Isabel and Moriah Curley-Clay (Set and Costumes), Sarah Thomson (Scenic Artist), Mary Parker (Lights), Ryan Bradburn (Props) and Thom Jenkins (Sound). The cast is led by top regional actors Andrew Benator (Jackson/Sgt. Kirk Sponsullar), Kerrie Seymour (Mary), Katie Kneeland (Jo), Lala Cochran (Liz), Caroline Arapoglou (Amanda) and Justin Walker (Trenner).
Women in Jeopardy! is presented September 29 –October 23 on Aurora’s Metro Waterproofing Strickland Family Mainstage. There will be a Wednesday Discount Matinee on October 19 at 10 a.m. with tickets starting at $16. Regular show tickets range from $20-$55 and are available online at bit.ly/jeopardytickets or by calling the Box Office at 678.226.6222.
