Singles in Agriculture to graze Aurora Theatre stage, September 16– October 9
2016-17 GGC Harvel Lab Series will debut with hilarious presentation about farmers finding love
Tuesday, July 26, 2016 — An unconventional convention filled with laugh-out-loud livestock-inspired comedy, Aurora Theatre will debut its 2016-17 GGC Harvel Lab Series with the Southeastern regional premiere of Singles in Agriculture, September 16- October 9! This brand-new production, written by Abby Rosebrock, brings together lonely farmers looking for love – or at least the next best thing – during an annual dating conference. With only one weekend to graze the field for eligible matches, a whole new meaning of “love birds” will be imparted on Atlanta audiences. Featuring the dynamic cast of Jeremy Aggers, Lauren Boyd and Vallea Woodbury, this hilarious presentation will prove that everything really is bigger in Texas, including how far some people will go for love!
“This show is a dynamic powerhouse that wraps comedy and drama into a relatable production for anyone who enjoys witty remarks and at times, mature humor,” said Justin Anderson, Aurora Associate Artistic Director. “Despite not everyone being a farmer, we all have experienced the trials that come when jumping in the dating scene and searching for love. If you haven’t, Jeremy, Lauren and Vallea’s top-notch performance will no doubt leave you feeling as if you have.”
Directed by Anderson, Singles in Agriculture takes place during the last night of the convention, where Modern Family-obsessed, goat farmer Priscilla vies for a chance at a romantic rendezvous with repressed dairy man Joel. When she’s slipped a key card to his hotel room, Priscilla must decide whether to accept the invitation or fly-the-coop for another opportunity. Like everything else on the farm though, some things aren’t always what they seem and may lead to stepping into something a little messy!
Singles in Agriculture is recommended for teens and adults and will be presented September 16- October 9 in Aurora’s Studio. General admission tickets are $20-$30 online at tickets.auroratheatre.com or by calling the Box Office at 678-226-6222. Season and group tickets are on sale now.
