Silver Belles

by Allyson Currin, Matt Conner & Stephen Gregory Smith

November 22 – December 31, 2016


DC’s finest leading ladies—Donna Migliaccio, Nova Y. Payton, Ilona Dulaski, Naomi Jacobson and Peggy Yates—star in this hilarious world premiere musical for the holiday season.

When Oralene, the longtime director of small town Sylva Ridge’s Christmas Pageant, suddenly passes away, the Silver Belles must come to the rescue! With the spirit of Oralene looking on, the sterling-hued vixens band together, discover their talents and pull out all the stops to keep the beloved pageant alive.

It’s Golden Girls meets Designing Women with a heaping helping of well-known Christmas tunes and clever new ditties. Christmas without the Silver Belles… just wouldn’t be Christmas!

Running time is approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes, with no intermission.

    Silver Belles is also sponsored by Mike Blank with additional support from Jeffrey Thurston and Charlie Berardesco.
