Event Description

The Tennessee Valley Art Association's CenterStage Theatre presents the comedy "First Baptist of Ivy Gap" at the Ritz Theatre. The two-act play opens during WWII, as six women from First Baptist of Ivy Gap roll bandages and plan the church’s 75th anniversary celebration; the wise-cracking pastor’s wife, a mother whose son is fighting in the Pacific, a rebellious organist, a woman who dreams of a career in Hollywood, the shy newcomer with a secret, and an influential Baptist with a secret of her own. Twenty-five years later, the “First Baptist Six” reunite in the second act with revelations formed over a quarter of a century that shake relationships. The play is written by Ron Osborn and directed by Laura Connolly and Andrew Maples.
