Winder-Barrow Community Theatre is so excited to be bringing “live” theater back to Winder and the surrounding areas. “The Miss Magnolia Senior Citizen Beauty Pageant” premiered on Friday, October 8th and will run for three weekends until October 24th. Friday and Saturday night shows start at 7:30 pm, and the Sunday matinees will start at 3:00 pm. Tickets are available online by clicking on the red ticket found on the home page. Click for online sales, choose the date you wish to attend, and complete your order. Your ticket will be at Will Call at the theater when you arrive for the show.

This hilarious play is by Leslie Kimbell, a Statham resident. She is the author of the “Four Old Broads” series, and this new play is the third in the series. WBCT has performed the World Premier of each of the shows. Léland Karas is directing with Kim Jones as Assistant Director.

There is social distancing in the theater with limited seating and everybody is asked to wear masks to enter the building. WBCT and the City of Winder have done everything they can to keep everybody safe and well while attending the show. Come on out and join the fun at the Winder Cultural Arts Center theater (105 E. Athens Street in Winder).
