Zanesville Community Theatre opens its 50th season with the fun, yet thought-provoking, comedy The Ladies of Harmony by Ron Hill. 

The play revolves around the six women who form the funeral dinner committee of Harmony Church as they meet to plan the dinner of a man they despised. 

While drinking coffee, eating doughnuts and gossiping on a variety of topics, including Pastor Bob’s go-go dancing fiancée, the ladies engage in a game of "what-ifs" and "I-wish-I-hads," and in doing so, reveal several secrets about themselves. 

In the second act, we find out if these self-assured women know what they’re talking about.

Directed by Nancy Hynds, the play features a mix of Zanesville Community Theatre veterans and newcomers. Val Gahagan plays the committee chair, Maud. Her friends and fellow committee members are Addie, played by Rebecca Wagstaff; Stella, handled by Sally Goins; Grace, portrayed by Laurel DuBeck; Leah, done by Jan Kiikka; and Thelma is brought to life by Kara Kelly. 

The Ladies of Harmony opens on Friday, Sept. 21 and runs two weekends. Curtain is at 8 p.m. on Sept. 21, 22, 28 and 29 and at 2:30 p.m. for the Sunday matinees, Sept. 23 and 30. 

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (55+), military or students and $5 for youth (12 & younger). The shows will be held at the theatre at 940 Findley Ave. 

Reservations are recommended and may be made at or by phone at 740-455-6487.
