Humor, hit songs and three women with dreams and determination make a winning combination for “Honky Tonk Angels,” another toe-tapping show by Ted Swindley, author of “Always, Patsy Cline.”
Produced by City Repertory Theatre of Palm Coast and directed by John Sbordone, the show runs January 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 & 22 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 7:30 pm and Sunday matinees at 3 pm. Tickets are $30 and are available online at crtpalmcoast.com or by calling the box office at 386-585-9415. All performances take place at City Repertory Theatre, 160 Cypress Point Pkwy, Palm Coast, FL 32164.
This country music revue features three gutsy gals who are determined to better their lives and follow their dreams to Nashville. Angela (Robin Neill-Kitaif) is the narrator, mother of six, wife of Lone Star beer trucker Bubba, and double-wide monarch from Waxahachie, Texas; Sue Ellen (Michele O’Neil) is the Dolly Parton-esque long-suffering, twice-divorced, eternally harassed career woman from Pasadena, and Darlene (Chelsea Jo Conard) is the West-Virginia-born, sweet-voiced, pig-tailed girl en route from the Mississippi Delta. Benjamin Beck music directs and adds background vocals.
Romance, independence, and lots of twang and sass result in a feel-good mix of laughter, a few tears, and lots of country pop favorites. “These Boots are Made for Walking,” “Stand by Your Man,” “Delta Dawn,” “9 to 5,” “Ode to Billie Joe,” “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” and “Harper Valley PTA” are just a few of the 30 heart-thumpin’, foot-stompin’, country classics you’ll experience on the wings of the Honky Tonk Angels.
