How Will Things End for the Freitag Family? Find Out at This Comedic Play

See the Tony Award-winning play beloved by many at The Last Night of Ballyhoo! The play, written by Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy), is an achingly beautiful, comedic, and enthralling romance audiences of all ages will love. Witness it live on Saturday, February 2nd!

Winner of the 1997 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, the story is set in a upper class German-Jewish community in Atlanta, Georgia in December 1939. Hitler has recently conquered Poland, Gone with the Wind is about to premiere, and Adolph Freitag and his family - who are so highly assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the front parlor – are looking forward to Ballyhoo, a lavish cotillion ball sponsored by their restrictive country club.

The Freitag family hopes that the party of the year will be the chance for their daughters to meet their future husbands—but when their uncle brings home his new employee, a handsome Eastern European bachelor from Brooklyn, everyone must confront their own prejudices, desires, and beliefs.

Founded in 1974 as a Community Improvement Project of the Dunwoody Woman’s Club, Stage Door Players has come a long way since the community theatre performed in various locations until 1988, when a permanent home was realized in the North DeKalb Cultural Center. Today Stage Door Players is a fully professional theatre, producing a full season of popular, compelling and entertaining works, featuring World Premiere and regional debuts of new plays and musicals.
