HCCT holding auditions for 'Savannah Sipping Society'

The Hill Country Community Theatre is casting the fourth show of its 2019-20 season, “The Savannah Sipping Society,” written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. Auditions are Monday, February 24, and Tuesday, February 25, at 7 p.m.

The theater is located at 4003 FM 2147 West in Cottonwood Shores.

Sides from the script will be provided at the audition for cold readings. Wendy Ferrell is directing the show.

In “The Savannah Sipping Society,” a delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by fate and an impromptu happy hour. Together, they decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years.


Randa Covington (female, 40-50)

A high-strung perfectionist and workaholic, Randa is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment after losing her job as an architect. Unfortunately, her change in circumstances has shown she has no life and no idea how to get one. Dot Haigler (female, 60s)

The former high school French teacher is still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement. She faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch — alone. She is daffy and endearing.

Marlafaye Mosley (female, 50s)

Earthy and boisterous, this good ol' Texas gal and liquor rep has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her tom-cattin’ husband to a 23-year-old dental hygienist. Her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to wreak a righteous vengeance on her ex.

Jinx Jenkins (female, 30-50)

New to town, this spunky ball of fire is self-confident and gregarious. She offers her services as a life coach to the others; however, her determination to get their lives on track has blinded her to the fact she is the one in desperate need of sage advice.

The production runs April 23-May 10 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays. Contact the theater at 830-693-2474 or for more information about auditions.
