The Ladies of Harmony, the latest production of Nevada’s Community Coun-cil on the Performing Arts, promises to have the perfect remedy for the winter blues.The laughter is nonstop in this hilarious comedy by Ron Hill, said spokeswoman Ann Bunton.

The show features a small cast of six, but promises big laughs. Cast members include Kim Bessey as Thelma; Candi Dahmer as Stella; Jackie Dunivan as Leah; Edi Gragg as Addie; Jane Ann Hancock as Grace; and Jamie Stogner as Maud.

The play is set in the fellowship hall of Harmony Church, where six church ladies meet to plan a funeral dinner for a man they literally hated.

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

A big shock comes the next day when an unexpectedly large crowd of mourners arrive at the funeral dinner, and the ladies have to endure their most embarrassing mo-ment yet, Bunton said.

The play is directed by Linda Davidson and the show is sponsored by Metz Banking Co.
