The Charitable SIsterhood of the Second Trinity Victory Church
by Playhouse 2000

Apr. 28 - Apr. 29

The roads are flooded, the bridges are washed out, and less generous souls are staying safely indoors, but it takes more than a little rain to keep the ladies of the Charitable Sisterhood from fulfilling their sworn mission. Bea Littleton is the pastor's wife; Lorraine Jensen is the tireless mother of nine; Tina Yates is the transplanted Yankee; and Janet Murchison is the newest arrival.

When these ladies meet to organize a relief effort for homeless Guatamalans, they are greeted with a small mountain of community donations—but one woman's junk is another woman's treasure, and that pile of stuff in this little church basement is hiding a thing or two. Come sit in on this month's meeting in the basement of Second Trinity Victory Church; our five angels of mercy will leave you breathless with laughter as they do their best to help the victims of global disaster, spiritual deprivation and, most of all, one another. A hilarious and heartwarming play!

In the tradition of comedies such as “Steel Magnolias” and “Crimes of the Heart,” the laughs are intermingled with some serious ideas to create a thoroughly compelling evening of theater; a perfect way to fill a summer night!

Auditions on April 28 and 29, 2024

Playhouse 2000

Plays June 14 - 30, 2024

Director Jesirae Kesler is looking to cast 5 funny women (and 1 or 2 men) for Bo Wilson’s surprisingly intriguing and poignant piece, The Charitable Sisterhood of the Second Trinity Victory Church on Sunday, April 28 at 2:30, and Monday, April 29 at 6:30 in the VK Garage Theater.

In this new comedy, the ladies of The Charitable Sisterhood have gathered to organize a benefit for homeless Guatemalans, but they turn up a much more urgent problem right here at home. 

In the tradition of comedies such as Steel Magnolias and Crimes of the Heart, the women of the Sisterhood are fun, familiar and fresh.
