It's 1956, and Hollywood has arrived in Natchez, Mississippi with its brightest stars to film a new epic motion picture, Raintree County. Meanwhile at Clemmie's, a Natchez tea room, the widowed proprietor, who has a fascination with movies and a secret admirer, oversees her own cast of characters: Tootie, her take-charge friend; Jo Beth, a former beauty queen; Glease, a man more comfortable with women than macho men, and Marjorie, an unethical social climber.
However, when a competition is announced for a small role in the movie, this rivalry brings out the best and worst of these memorable characters. Twists, turns and revelations lead Clemmie to trade a moment of fame for love and the chance to impact the lives of people dear to her.
Seeing Stars in Dixie performs April 28-May 1 & May 5-8, 2022, at the Paula Vaughn Black Box Theatre, 910 Center Street in Olde Town Conyers. Thursday-Saturday 7:30pm, Sunday 3:00pm. Tickets go on sale March 31!
