Now on stage at ICT
Now Playing!! ICT MainStage Presents "The Last Night of Ballyhoo"
by Alfred Uhry
Directed by Bruce Coleman
May 17 - June 1, 2013
at the Dupree Theater
Romantic comedy drama
From the author of “Driving Miss Daisy”comes the story of the Freitag family, owner of the Dixie Bedding Company, Atlanta, December, 1939. Gone with the Wind is about to premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but the only important event for local Jews is the debutante ball, Ballyhoo. Snobbery, prejudice, and misunderstanding pull the family apart as the social event of the year approaches. Some soul searching and revelations mend them back together in this romantic comedy.
Reviews for "The Last Night of Ballyhoo"

"At ICT Mainstage, Alfred Uhry's The Last Night of Ballyhoo offers a powerful look at cultures in conflict."

If you're lookin' for a good time, this dynamic duo of dames knows how to please with their unique blend of ...song, dance, sketch and improv comedy! Featuring the twisted talents of Sherry Etzel and Lana K. Hoover, known for their theatrical exploits throughout the DFW area, this show spoofs the likes of Janis Joplin, Carol Channing and reality television, and takes lighthearted shots at healthcare reform, stodgy Brits, burned out moms, physical fitness and public radio.
All fundraiser tickets are $15 and are not included as a part of season ticket packages.
• Rated R for a little risque...and bawdy!
