Nassau Community College Presents"Five Women Wearing the Same Dress"December 14-18

Garden City, NY – The Nassau Community College Theatre and Dance Department is proud to present the hit comedy "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress," which will be performed at the Mainstage Theatre Wednesday, December 14 through Sunday, December 18.

"Five Women Wearing the Same Dress" is a comedy focusing on five bridesmaids at a society wedding in Tennessee.  Just after the ceremony, the women are hiding out in an upstairs bedroom. The dialogue in the play is as frothy as the hideous dresses the bridesmaids are forced to wear. There's Mindy, the groom's outspoken, out-lesbian older sister; the bride's bitter sibling Meredith; Georgeanne, the tightly wound, hard-drinking pal; world-weary Trisha; and 21-year-old Frances, who answers every tempting offer of a drink or smoke with "I can't—I'm a Christian." All five women have some personal history with the groom, a charming but nasty predator named Tommy Valentine.

Performances of "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress" are at 8:00 p.m., except for Sunday, December 18, when it is at 3:00 p.m. Tickets, which cost $9.00 per person, are $7.00 for seniors age 55 and over. Tickets sold at the door for that day's performance are free for college students who have a current valid ID. These tickets are available beginning one hour before curtain. For more information about the play or to order tickets, call the Theatre Box Office at 516.572.7676 Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
