Continuing the  20th Anniversary Season – The Glitter Girls  

The Texas Premiere of a Comedy by Mark Dunn

Playhouse 2000 is pleased and proud to be presenting the Texas Premiere of a brand new comedy by Mark Dunn, creator of Five Tellers Dancing In The Rain and other plays.

Mark describes The Glitter Girls as “Steel Magnolias meets Survivor,” and it is a unique combination of Southern Comedy and reality television.
In order to claim a very large inheritance, the members of “The Glitter Girls” – a sometimes benevolent society of aging girl-friends – must choose a single member from their ranks as the most worthy. As they vote “out” one member at a time, the claws come out, and hilarity – and some tender moments – ensue.
Auditions will be held on Sunday, July 1 at 2:30 and Monday, July 2 at 6:30 in the Studio of the Kit Werlein Annex. No advance preparation is necessary, but scripts are available for a limited check out at the P2K Office in the VK Garage Theater.
