About the Event
Mimi and Coralee’s plans to save their friend--Bobbi-- from more tragedy after her daughter’s untimely death go “caddy-wonked” when they accidentally kill a con man and his partners show up. Older and wiser wins the day as they fill a freezer, dodge a detective, nurture a romance, and save themselves. Mimi’s grandson shares their secrets in Kathy McSteen’s comic adaptation of Florence Henderson’s last film.

WHAT IS A STAGED READING?: An essential part of new play development, a staged reading is like a radio play in that actors can use scripts, but there’s stage action, costume, prop, lighting, sound, and set elements.
HOLLYWOOD COMES TO ENGLEWOOD: At this time, Srikant Chellappa, writer and director of the film “Bad Grandmas,” and executive producer/actor Dan Byington plan to attend the evening performance. Jack Snyder, co-writer and actor, has opted for the matinee. See cast & crew tab for more information.
STAY FOR THE TALK BACK: You are invited to a 15 minute talk-back with the director to share your impressions, comments, and questions after each performance.
WARNING: This play includes flashing lights, loud gunshot sound effects, and simulated murders, but no men are actually harmed during “Grandma’s Murder Club,” even if they deserve it.
PLEASE NOTE: For this production masks will be required in the theater throughout the performance and seating will be socially distanced. The lobby will be closed during intermission but the restrooms will be available for use. Food and beverages will not be provided but you can bring your own beverage and snacks to enjoy.
