MARYSVILLE – “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” is a play that has it all – filled with laughter, tears and horrible dresses.

Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts presents the comedy March 1-17 at its arts center, 9315 State Ave. #J.

“Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” takes place during an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tenn., estate where five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below.

The bridesmaids include Frances (Codie Wyatt), a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy (Bethany Roddy), the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne (Rita Baxter), whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith (Jeryn Pasha), the bride’s younger sister, whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha (Lydia O’Day), a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp (Ben St. Hilaire), a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.

The show is rated PG-13 for mild adult language, mature themes, and recreational drug references. It is directed by David Alan Morrison, Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 8 and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, and $15 for seniors (62+), students and military personnel. Tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com; at the RCF box office by phone 360-322-7402; or in-person at the arts center Tuesday-Saturday from 2-6 p.m. Discounted tickets for the March 9 performance are available at the Marysville branch of HomeStreet Bank.
