Directed by Marjorie Moon

Celeste Bedford Walker, author of the longtime favorite megahit musical Over Forty, and the hilarious comedy Reunion in Bartersville, brings us a new comedy called Sassy Mamas. Sassy Mamas is about three women of substance and a certain age who decide to flip the script on gender stereotypes by pursuing younger men. Ms. Walker’s shows, always fan favorites, promise sidesplitting laughter.
