INDIANA AUTHOR’S BOOKS BROUGHT TO STAGE BY LOCAL PLAYWRIGHT
OAKLANDON CIVIC THEATRE PRESENTS
“A PASSION FOR HARMONY”
BY JAMES TROFATTER
BASED ON THE BOOKS BY PHILIP GULLEY
Easter comes once again to Harmony and the somewhat eccentric residents are preparing for the festivities amid the dramas that always seem to encircle their lives. Fern Hampton’s Friendly Women’s Circle wants to celebrate by offering the Meetinghouse something of magnificence. And, boy, do they deliver!
Deena Morrison struggles with her love for Wayne Fleming whose wife, Sally, abandoned her husband and children over a year ago, but who has recently returned to be with her family again. The wife’s secret will ultimately unite the Friendly Women and the Meeting in an outpouring of love.
Jessie Peacock and Pastor Sam Gardner wrestle with their heart-felt beliefs when gifts of hope come from places most unlikely and despised; Harvey Muldoch promotes his lottery ticket give away despite disdain from certain members; and Dale Hinshaw intends to bring new life to the meetinghouse through his Scripture Ministries. But, as usual, Dale overlooks a few important details.
Local playwright, James Trofatter, has skillfully adapted Phil Gulley’s heart-warming and hilarious Harmony stories for stage with colorful and memorable characters. Please join us as we celebrate chickens, balloons and quilts in “A Passion for Harmony.”
