Don’t miss “Little Black Dress,” which will come to the Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre on July 10 through 14. This original musical was written for women, by women.

According to the Strand’s website: “‘Little Black Dress,’ the fearlessly funny ladies’ night out musical, makes for one wild and unforgettable evening with its hilarious, show-stopping musical numbers; Magic Mike-influenced dancing; and priceless improvised audience mayhem.

After being on tour for nearly three years with the wildly successful ‘Spank! The Fifty Shades of Grey Parody,’ writers Danielle Trzcinski and Amanda Barker saw an audience they never knew existed. Thousands of woman who wanted to go to the theatre not just to see a show, but to have an experience where they could laugh, party and let loose. So they grabbed a couple of their super talented friends — award-winning director Christopher Bond and Broadway vocal arranger and composer Natalie Tenenbaum — and together, they wrote the story of Dee and her best friend, Mandy. Witness the women’s lives through the major life events spent in their little black dresses: first job interviews, first dates, first awkward sexual experiences, first funerals and more. Using hilarious improv, catchy songs, and a heartfelt story, Little Black Dress has made audiences across the globe laugh, cry, and party.”

Upgrade your balcony or main floor seat to include the VIP Meet & Greet option. VIP ticket holders are invited to a post-show meet and greet reception in the Strand’s fourth floor event space. This includes a chance to have your photo taken with the cast of the show and two drink tickets. VIP tickets are limited.

The Marietta Charter Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association met on June 21, 2019 at the Atlanta Hilton/Marietta Conference Center. Holly Quinlan, CEO of Cobb Travel, was the guest speaker. The chapter was also pleased to welcome former member Anne Wright from Jamestown, N.C., who was visiting.

On June 19, legendary syndicated columnist and contributor to the Marietta Daily Journal, Dick Yarbrough, spoke to the Kennworth Kiwanis Club. At least four times, the Georgia Press Association named his column “Most Humorous.” I am sure that this was a most entertaining meeting.
