Going Home to Dixie the Musical

World Premiere

August 5th, 12th @ 8:00 p.m. August 6th, 13th @ 3:00 Forsyth Central High School Performing Arts Center Cumming, GA Tickets @ Lucky, the flamboyant triple threat cosmetologist, wedding planner, and pageant coach, styles the hair of Magnolia Garden Club President, Evelyn Wellington, in a small salon in Gemini, Georgia. Evelyn announces that she will soon be throwing her son, Creighton, the finest engagement party the town has ever seen. Creighton returns to Gemini before his medical internship to assist with the party planning and the town is now all abuzz about his betrothal to a pretentious, high society girl named Pamela. Dixie, the owner of Dixie’s High Point of Beauty Hair Salon, sets aside appointments for the out of town guests. Her daughter, Brandy, Creighton’s high school sweetheart, is also returning to Gemini to renovate her mother’s flamingo pink kitchen. As both Brandy and Creighton spend their nights at Frangelico’s bar reminiscing with old friends and each other, they begin to rekindle their fondness for one another. Sensing this, Miss Evelyn invites Creighton’s fiancé, “Pamela not Pam,” and her best friend, and sister to town to get to know everyone and assist with the party planning. Pamela feels that Creighton is getting cold feet and decides they should go ahead and get married, thus the engagement party becomes a wedding. The entire town becomes ensnared in the twists and tangles of old flames, late-night happenings at Fran’s Booze and Bands, and salon gossip. Then, what was to be a simple wedding, becomes a site of shocking confessions and surprises.
