Audition: The Savannah Sipping Society

Edmonds Driftwood Players

About the project and the company

The Savannah Sipping Society

By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten

Director: Joe Goins

In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.

THE SAVANNAH SIPPING SOCIETY is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection. (

(Hint: there are some choice ones in the script of The Savannah Sipping Society.) Please be prepared to perform your monologue once without an accent, and once with the accent of your preferred character. Accents: We will be using accents for this production; from Georgia Drawl to Texas Twang. Headshot and Resume: Please bring one copy of each. The headshot does not need to be professionally made – a print out of a selfie will suffice. If this prevents a barrier to participation, please contact the office about printing your materials ahead of time.
