Golden Sierra High School presents ‘Divorce Southern Style.’

An established favorite with stock theaters, this fast-paced, wildly funny farce centers on the zany schemes of a middle-aged divorcée who decides that the time is ripe to get back together with her ex-husband.

Divorced for 15 years, and running low on cash, Eleanor Bander decides reconciliation with her ex-husband (whose second wife died the year before) is her best hope.

To lure him within striking range, she tells him that their daughter is about to be married — hinting that it is a forced situation — when the truth is that the daughter is merely engaged again (for the fifth time) to her long-standing fiancé.

The ex-husband, Walter, not only arrives but brings along his current flame, a former classmate who was Eleanor’s competition from high-school days.

As the plot thickens, which it does with growing hilarity, Eleanor’s friends and neighbors become involved in the action, culminating in a surprise birthday party where the truth, at last, comes out.

Walter is prepared to forgive and forget, and falls easily into Eleanor’s trap. So easily, in fact, that Eleanor is the one who now has second thoughts — deciding that it is better, after all, to stay single and broke than to resume the bickering that drove her away from Walter in the first place.

This witty play is presented by the Golden Sierra Drama Club. It is directed by Kody Wipf, and stars Amanda LaShell as Eleanor; Brenda Bolden as her best friend, Elma Bule; Darin Kintigh as the husband, Walter; Erika Mabray as the daughter, Elizabeth; Michael Robertson as Elizabeth’s fiancé, Taylor Houpt, the randy optometrist; and Carlee Huffman as Gretchen.

The play is scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 14 to 16, at 7 p.m. in the high school multi-purpose room, 5101 Garden Valley Road in Garden Valley.

The cost is $8 for general admission and for students without an Associated Student Body card, and $5 for those with an ASB card. Senior discounts also apply.
