VANITIES

September 1 – 3  |   Friday and Saturday 8:00 pm  Sunday 2:30 pm   |   Theatre Coppell

This bittersweet comedy is a snapshot of the lives of three Texas girls. Joanne, Kathy, and Mary who are aggressively vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later in their college sorority house, they are confronting their futures with nervous jauntiness. As adults, they reunite briefly in New York. Time has changed their friendships, which once were as well coordinated as sweater sets. Old time banter rings false. Their attempts at honest conversation only show they can no longer afford to have very much in common.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm. Reservations are available at TheatreCoppell.com or by calling 972-745-7719.
