Mahogany Ensemble Theatre continues its 2nd season, says Angelique Feaster, with the Louisiana premiere of Ramona King's comedy Steal Away. Set in Chicago during the 1930s, it is about five upstanding church ladies who raise funds to send young black Women to college by holding bake sales, selling church suppers, and the like. To increase the number of scholarships, during the Depression era, the women come up with a new idea to raise the money: robbing banks.

Steal Away is a light-hearted comedy for the entire family. Director Angelique Feaster has assembled an ensemble full of personality, featuring Neverlyn Townsel, Mary Thompson, Dorothea Townsel, Lorie Pennywell, Sharon Penson, and Angelique Feaster.

Sat, May 19
Performance Art Center at First United Methodist
4:30 matinee and a 7:30 evening performance.
Tickets: $15 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and students, $5 for children 12 and younger. Group rates are available.
