Things are heating up at Peach Acres, an active retirement home where Mildred Rice (Colleen Shogren) and Sarah Jane Dinsmore (Vicki Vander Horn) spend a lot of their time trying to avoid Howard's (Ron Huibregtse) lecherous advances.

Douglas and Bernice Thompson (Bill and Donna Harris) tend the gardens and try to calm issues that occur among other residents.

Iris Cunningham (Sharon Jacobson) is too shy and retiring to get very involved.

The head of Peach Acres, Mrs. Rivers (Mary Kolbe) has her hands full, especially when new residents Lowell (Kent Turner) and Sybil (Barb Rassfeld) Thackery move in.

This hilarious comedy, "Senior Follies" by Billy St. John and directed by Elise Buchman, will have attendees laughing from start to finish.

The play will be performed by the Holiday Island Theater Guild at the Holiday Island Clubhouse on at 6 p.m. Nov. 6 (sold out), and at 7 p.m. Nov. 7 and Nov. 8. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased for the Friday and Saturday performances at the Holiday Island Cornerstone Bank, the Holiday Island Rec Center, or by calling 479-253-5185, 479-253-5622 or 479-253-4944.
