HELD OVER – 5 Women Coming Back to Belwood!

They’re coming ba-a-ack…..!

5 Women Wearing the Same Dress, the hit comedy by Alan Ball that took the Belwood Summer Theatre by storm is coming back. Grinder Productions has secured the play for a limited three-show engagement July 30th, 31st and August 1st at the Belwood Lions Hall.

5 Women has played to rave reviews the world over, and last weekend’s production was no exception. From the raw, powerful emotions of each of the characters came joke after gut-busting joke. The play’s universal themes of love, faith and the need to reach out struck a chord with so many people that Grinder’s Creative and Executive Director Eric Goudie felt he had no choice but to bring the show back.

“Pink! Pink! Pink!” yells Goudie enthusiastically. “I don’t know what it is about this show – maybe it’s the girls, maybe it’s the guy, or maybe it’s the dresses, but something about this show has gotten through to a lot of people. We’ve faced a lot of difficulties this season, so I’m very thankful to Stacey and her team for putting together such a stellar production.”

Director Stacey Ingham sums up the meaning and the message behind 5 Women like this: “This show for women who understand, and men who want to,” she says.

Please be advised that this show does contain some coarse language and mature humour that may not be suitable for younger audiences.

5 Women Wearing the Same Dress re-opens on Thursday, July 30th at 8pm at the Belwood Hall, with subsequent performances Friday July 31st at 8pm and Saturday, August 1st at 2pm. Tickets are $15 each, and are available by calling 519-780-7593, or at the door.
