Academy Actors Showcase - Final Performance Friday Night
The Academy Actors are proud to present their Spring Showcase production of Barbara Pease Weber's "DelVal Divas." Set in the Delaware Valley Federal Corrections Facility, this mostly light-hearted comedy follows five middle-aged women who are incarcerated for various white collar crimes. The prison more resembles a country club where the ladies order in dinner and weekly have their nails done and enjoy a massage. Trouble arrives when one of their "suitemates" is replaced by someone who is convicted of - gasp - murder. Come out and watch how the Divas help their new inmate prove her innocence and unravel a campy and fun murder mystery.
Admission is free and the show begins Friday night at 7:00pm in the Fine Arts Building.
It's funnier than you'd think.
