1. Company—Virginia Samford Theatre

Dolly Parton's 9 to 5
Dolly Parton’s 9-5 closes Feb. 6! (Virginia Samford Theatre)

The Virginia Samford Theatre serves as a beacon for outstanding community theatre. Although their presentation of Dolly Parton’s 9-5 just ended, there’s still hope. Grab your tickets for Virginia Samford Theatre’s edition of Stephen Sondheim’s Company

This musical comedy will make you feel alive through its beautiful scores and hilarious storytelling of the “tragedy of life:” marriage.

Red Mountain Theatre presents Once on This Island, a Tony Award-winning musical about star-crossed lovers and a peasant girl chosen by the gods.

A story about community, classism and sacrifice, it’ll truly move you. Learn more about the story here.

3. Glengarry Glen Ross—Birmingham Theatre Festival

Will they win that high-dollar prize? (Birmingham Theatre Festival)

Glengarry Glen Ross follows four Chicago salesmen—Levene, Roma, Moss, and Aaronow—and their supervisor, Williamson, who work together selling undesirable real estate at inflated prices. Take a seat and enjoy the events unfold as these amateur salesmen try to win a Cadillac.

4. Steel Magnolias—Arts Council of the Trussville Area

Take a seat! (ACTA)

Steel Magnolias is a show of pure gold. It follows women in a hair salon in a small town in Louisana. You’ll fall in love with characters like the lovely Truvy and the cranky old lady Ouiser who isn’t crazy but has been in a “bad mood for 40 years.”

This show will have you laughing through your tears. Don’t miss it!

5. The Odd Couple—Home Theatre

Don’t be the odd one out, come see this! (Home Theatre)

A classic show that I think every theatre lover should see would be The Odd Couple. Thankfully, Home Theatre will be putting it on, so grab your tix for this amazing chance.

Did I mention that it’s also Homewood Theatre’s very first production in the new location in SoHo Square.

6. Shadowlands—Leeds Arts Council

Shadowlands is a story that deals with a man’s struggle with personal pain and grief. You’ll enjoy this story of love and patience brought to you by the Leeds Arts Council.
