We will post any updates on our website at and place an announcement on our box office messaging system once it has been determined this is under control. We recognize the importance of social distancing and how we can be instrumental in assisting with slowing down the spread of the disease. We will keep you informed as updates evolve.Thank you all, again, for being an important part of our community. Paulette D. Harris, Artistic Director

Hit comedic play, depicts four wealthy widows Magnolia, Annie, Simone, and Lois invite the area's four most eligible bachelors to an intimate soiree for eight. Having already buried nine husbands altogether, they know that neighbors' tongues will wag like the tail of a starving dog with the key to the butcher shop; but they are willing to defy town mores and endure vicious gossip if there is a chance that they will meet “Mr. Right” tonight. The Dance on Widow's Row is a light comedy about death, dating and superstition - - or, more specifically, about how hard it can be for a woman to get a date after she's buried a few husbands.
