Grace and Glorie

The next production at the Blue Ridge Community Theater in Blue Ridge, Georgia is “Grace and Glorie”. It will run October 6 through 16, 2011.

This is an interesting story about the differences and similarities of two women. Grace is a nice, simple living person who volunteers for Hospice, helping comfort people at the end of their days. Glorie is a high society type who is Grace’s next assignment. The contrast between the two make this a touching and funny play.

Showtimes are 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, 2 PM matinee on Sundays.

Admission is $18 for adults, $16.20 for seniors 65+, $9 for students (college and younger), and groups of 10 or more are $14.40 each. For more information, call 706-632-9223.
