The theater is 11 Whitlock Ave., Marietta (formerly Theatre in the Square). The show plays through Feb. 2, Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
Five sisters use their faith and creativity to work through their lives when a family tragedy strikes. Set in the family home in North Georgia in the early 1980s, the story is told through flashbacks.
“The father dies early on in a trucking accident and the family is left to cope without their father,” Goodner said.
“The performances are phenomenal. The acting is completely top-notch,” Goodner said.
“It’s a beautiful story about family and hope and music and faith. It’s a beautiful experience. Audiences that have seen it have been absolutely raving about it,” he said.
The subject matter of the play is serious.
“It’s good family time, but it’s intense and heavy. It makes people cry. There’s not a dry eye in the audience after the show is over,” he said.
Although all the performances are free, donations are accepted after the performance.
“It won’t cost you a dime,” Goodner said.
After each show, a donation basket is passed in the lobby.
“We are 100 percent convinced the audience will enjoy it. This has been a very successful way to get people in,” he said.
“We just want people to come see this play because we believe in the message. … The play encompasses pretty much everything that the Marietta community values, especially in theater,” Goodner said.
