Belles 2: The Reunion

September 7 -17, 2017

"Belles: The Reunion " News Release

IPAL presents a Comedy/Drama "BELLES: The Reunion "

The Iberia Performing Arts League is pleased to present "Belles: The Reunion" by Mark Dunn as the opening play in their 2017 - 2018 season. The production will open September 7 and run for two consecutive weekends closing on September 17 at IPAL's ESSANEE Theater located at 126 Iberia Street in beautiful downtown New Iberia. Curtain time is 7:30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and 3:00 p.m.,  Sunday afternoons. Advance tickets may be purchased at Delaunes' Pharmacy, Paul’s Flower Shop, The Daily Iberian, Eventbrite or by calling the theater (337-364-6114) and leaving a message. Tickets can also be purchased at the door. There is general seating and all tickets are $10.

"Belles: The Reunion" is a play in two acts set in an America just a short time ago. The plot revolves around six adult sisters who live in various area codes around the country and who stay in touch or avoid contact by telephone. Their very different personalities and life styles create situations that are both funny and dramatic. In spite of differences though, we are reminded that they are sisters above all else.

While this play most definitely stands on its own, those who saw IPAL's " Belles " last year will recognize the Walker sisters - they are just 25 years older.

Directed by Mac Stearns, "Belles: The Reunion" is truly an ensemble play and features six outstanding area actresses. The oldest sister, Peggy is to be played by Jennifer Felder and the next sister in age, Aneece, will be portrayed by Jennifer Young. One middle sister, Roseanne will be acted by Lauren Tisdale and Audrey, the other will be played by Adel Comeaux. The next to youngest, Sherry will be portrayed by Katelyn Gulotta and Tiffany Poirrier will play the youngest, Paige.
