The Hallelujah Girls

Location: San Diego

Type: Theater


by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten

Directed by Jerry Pilato
Produced by Judy Hughes

ABOUT THE PLAY: “The Hallelujah Girls” is written by the popular trio of Southern comedy writers: Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten (of TV’s “The Golden Girls”). Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide to shake up their lives. The action in this rollicking Southern comedy takes place in the abandoned church-turned-day-spa where this group of friends gathers. After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious, and if they’re going to achieve their dreams, they have to get on it now! But Sugar Lee, their high-spirited, determined leader, has her hands full keeping the women motivated. By the time the women rally together to overcome a list of obstacles and launch their new, improved lives, you’ve got a side-splitting, joyful comedy that will make you laugh out loud and shout “Hallelujah!”
