"Hallelujah Girls"




By Angela Ash

HALLELUJAH GIRLS will be playing at the Derby Dinner Playhouse through October 2. This Southern comedy is a funny, heart-warming tale that relays the day-to-day activities of a group of female friends at a popular church that has been turned into a day spa.

This is exactly the type of performance where one can just let go and relax. There's no mystery to solve and no choruses to sing, but there are plenty of opportunities to laugh until your sides ache! The cast is perfectly matched, featuring many Derby Dinner favorites, including Elizabeth Loos, Tina Jo Wallace, Rita Thomas, Janet Essenpreis, Brian Bowman, Debbie King-Raque, Michael Bradley and Paul Kerr.

As always, Loos and Wallace are both brilliant in their roles, standing out from an already phenomenal cast. Essenpreis makes the perfect villain, also bringing in many moments of the prouction's hilarious one-liners.

HALLELUJAH GIRLS is written by Jones Hope Wooten and directed by Bekki Jo Schneider.
