OUR 2018 WINTER THEATRE SEASON
"Shirley Valentine" at the Tybee Post Theater!
Written by Willy Russell – author of “Blood Brothers” and “Educating Rita”
Directed by Tom Coleman, III
Shirley Valentine is the second production of a three-series season at Tybee Post Theater. It’s the story of an ordinary, middle class English housewife, who contemplates her life and her future through an entertaining and enlightening conversation with her kitchen wall. This kitchen therapy session leads Shirley to accompany a girlfriend on holiday in Greece, where she sheds the mantle of housewife and begins a life-changing adventure.
Critically acclaimed The New York Post calls the play “Absolutely smashing!” and the New York Daily News named it “a joyful, captivating piece of theatre.” The play was nominated for a Tony award for Best Play and won a Tony for Best Actress in a Play for Pauline Collins.
Malinda Davis Smith, who plays the title role is originally from the Maryland / DC area and was featured in SCT’s “KEN”.
SCT’s next production planned for the venue is “The Great American Trailer Park Musical” which is slated for May, 2018.

About the show:
Small town 1980s Florida, in a trailer park called Armadillo Acres. The story centers around a love triangle between Norbert, Jeannie, & Pippi. There's a new tenant at Armadillo Acres—and she's wreaking havoc all over Florida's most exclusive trailer park. When Pippi, the stripper on the run, comes between the Dr. Phil–loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband—the storms begin to brew.
The music is country/western gospel/rockabilly.
