After 21 years of captivating audiences, the Georgia Mountain Players theater troupe will close the curtain on their prolific acting careers.
The group cites age and health concerns among its members as the reason behind the disbandment, but they’re not ready to quit just yet. Starting next Thursday and continuing through October, the group will perform “Leading Ladies” seven times at the Brenau Downtown Center.
“We had so many requests for ‘Leading Ladies’ that we said, ‘well this is going to be our last one; let’s do it again and go out while we’re on top,’” said Mike Martin, founding member and the managing artistic director for the group. “This show is just one of the funniest shows we’ve ever done. It’s good, clean fun that will make you come out feeling good.”
“Leading Ladies” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17-19, 24-25 and 2:30 p.m. Oct. 20 and 26 at the Brenau Downtown Center.
Tickets are $17 for adults and $13 for seniors, students and children.
Martin said Georgia Mountain Players are a family, who will stay close even after the shows stop. They also haven’t ruled out a reunion in the future.
“We have so much fun just being together and doing the shows, and if we do something in the future, it will be for a cause,” he said.
