Gulfport Little Theatre is proud to announce the Gulf Coast premiere of Karen Schaeffer’s Girls’ Weekend, a lightning-quick farce in which four women travel to Dot’s Northwoods cabin to consume copious amounts of wine, laugh at their lives, trade stories and chat about their book club’s latest selection. However, after the third case of wine comes through the door, it becomes clear there will be more stewing than reviewing.

Carol, who is monitoring her temperature for the best “window of opportunity” to get pregnant, gets a ride to the cabin from her husband, Rick, who is hoping the “time is right” for a quick tryst.  Meg, recently widowed, is having a secret affair with Dot’s son, only to find he has shown up at the cabin unexpectedly and wants to further their relationship in stealth. Meg sends him to hide in a boathouse until he sees her special porchlight signal and the coast is clear to rejoin her in the cabin. Ellie, the youngest and Meg’s daughter, would rather not be a part of the weekend with her “elders” and meets a young townie, inviting him to hide out in a barn. When he sees her special porchlight signal, he climbs into her bedroom window and sneaks her out to a local bar after the other ladies retire. The only obstacle to each of the ladies’ secret endeavors is Dot, who wants to stay up all night and party with the girls. So they make sure they ply her with plenty of party favors, and Dot proceeds to pass out. The ladies move Dot’s lifeless body from floor to closet to room, as the bottles tip up, the secrets spill out and the men sneak in. The madcap, door-slamming chaos comes to a head when Dot wakes up and discovers her girls’ weekend is full of men!


The show features a remarkable ensemble cast of Coast veterans and newcomers, including Susan Smith as Dot, Kimberly Hess as Meg, Faith Webster as Ellie, Meagan Parker as Carol, Keith Pederson as Sheriff Tom Lane, Boyce Deaton as Stephen, Matt Mavar as Rick, and Anthony Pyle as Bubba.  Their performances keep the face-paced farce moving along for audiences to enjoy a great evening of laughs.
