The play — written by “Smoke on the Mountain” author Alan Bailey along with author Ronnie Claire Edwards, and directed by Kim Parrish — is a period story about a young girl with plans to marry her soldier boyfriend before he ships off for World War II.
When “Ima Jean Tatum,” played by Amanda Dullen, arrives in the small Texas town to marry her soldier, she meets four garden club ladies who turn her world upside down in an attempt to throw her the perfect southern wedding in one day.
The “Belles” consist of Kim Jenkins as “Laura Lee,” Elisa Curole as “Bobrita,” Jan Daigle as “Glendine,” Amy Denton as “Violet,” and Amanda Dullen as “Ima Jean,” the young bride-to-be.
