Coming Soon

The Cemetery Club Laura
Director: Laura Blanton

The Cemetery Club is currently in rehearsal for this side-splitting comedy. Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husband's graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life, Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun, and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife's grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Ida’s heart. The Washington Journal describes it as "Very touching and humorous. An evening of pure pleasure that will make you glad you went to the theatre." Showdates are May 8-10 and May 15-17 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. This show is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French. Contact Laura Blanton at or call 493-ARTS for more information.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors, students and military with ID. Tickets are available at The Gathering Table Restaurant (Chiefland), Point of View Antiques (Fanning Springs), or by contacting Becky Gill at 352-443-9096 or
