In the grand tradition of theatrical melodrama, Kris Thompson's new play Bad Medicine is an old-fashioned barn-burner replete with over-the-top romance, a mustache-twirling villain and a jangly live piano score. There's even popcorn on hand to hurl at the smooth-talking snake oil salesman bad guy Bodkin Shamley, who arrives on the scene to try and steal the lovely Nurse Becky Trueheart away from her childhood sweetheart Sheriff Gene Ranger. You'll cheer, boo and shake with laughter at this madcap homage to stagecraft of yore. Learn More

Goldstar isn't letting me just fill in a review without doing a rating, so I am giving this 5 stars for the way the theater handled a situation. Unfortunately the show did not go on the night we attended because one of the lead actors got a sudden severe nose bleed that would not stop. Most importantly we hope she is okay. The theater handled it all well and gave us vouchers for any future performance. We WILL be back for a future performance. Looking forward to it!
1945, WWII is going on overseas. Back home the local women gather to roll bandages for the soldiers, and plan the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the church. Red Cross smocks, bandages, wise cracks, and witty repartee help the First Baptist Six do their part for the war effort.
1970, and the six are back together to celebrate the 100th anniversary, and catch up on each other’s lives. We will find what dreams were realized and what dreams were squashed. During this we will also find out what was really going on 25 years earlier. These mountain magnolias are pure gold, providing humor, drama, warmth, and six of the most wonderful characters you will see.
Written by Ron Osborne. Directed by Doris Merten with assistance from Haig Caesar.
Featuring: Renea Been, Carol Davis, Nora Hahn, Keitha Mae Hanks, Kristi Nicholson and Amesti Reioux.
