Players take us to heaven in new play
Placeholder Image

The Georgia Mountain Players are out to show the lighter side of heaven.

A hilarious and heart-warming show written by Matthew Carlin and directed by Dianne Martin, “The Education of Angels” opens at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18, and runs through Oct. 27 at the Georgia Mountains Center in downtown Gainesville.

When angels Nick (Josh Thompson) and Jenna (Rhonda Brown) are sent back to earth for a final exam before they can earn their wings, they have no idea why or what they are supposed to do.

The angels must figure out everything for themselves. They arrive at a church where Dave (Bill Maine), a very nervous bridegroom, is having doubts about getting married and becoming a new step-father to Ally (Nicolle Letts).

To further complicate and confuse him is his domineering ex-wife (Peggy Strickland) and his best man Jack (Cleve Brown). Dave gets help from the angels, but can only see Jenna and not Nick.
