What do you get when six frustrated friends with wobbly marriages get together when a dear friends dies?  You get Hallelujah Girls for a fun-filled comedy that will keep you laughing for the two hours it plays.

Written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Woolten who brings Limelight its final show as Kevin Heath, artistic director, producer (and everything else) brings his marvelous abilities to an end in the South Valley region. He and his partner, Alan Ibata, are moving to their new home in a small town in the Sierra Foothills.

For their 43rd and final fling they got their old diehards and gathered them together in this ongoing comedy. We can find Denee Lewis, Jo Anna Evens, Valerie Vanni, Christy Watt, Heather Bass and Robin Harris keeping things moving as they renovate an old abandoned church into an updated spa.

We will miss Kevin and Alan. But as they say, “All good things must came to an end.” Wish it wasn’t so in this case. They and their productions will be missed. The good news, however, is that Kevin announced South Valley Civic Theatre (which has its home at the Morgan Hill Community Playhouse) will be producing plays at the Limelight location at the Gilroy Arts Center.
