Cowgirls

It’s classical versus country in this haphazard hoedown! 

Beethoven meets Blue Grass in this hilarious musical. Back in the saddle for the 30th anniversary season, this laugh-filled, toe-tappin’ good time and long-running Off-Broadway hit was a sold-out sensation. A trio of classical musicians wind up accidentally booked as the featured act for the grand re-opening of a once Opry-esque roadhouse. The Coghill Trio has been mistaken for the Cowgirl Trio! Can they abandon Handel for Hank Williams and become country music heroines in just 24 hours? Get ready to kick up your heels and lasso up your friends and family for some hoedown hi-jinks in this musical romp.

Cowgirls Sneak Peek

Audience Praise for Cowgirls (2014)

“Do yourself a favor and see these talented and beautiful ladies do what they do.”

“All six actresses were terrific, but the three in the trio plus the owner of the bar were amazing, jumping from piano to guitar to violin to mandolin to accordion and playing them all perfectly as well as having great voices.”

“We had a fantastic time at the Cowgirls premiere show on May 16th. What a fantastic twist and entertaining show. The audience as usual was very responsive.”

“Kudos to all involved- rarely in a musical do you see so many people doing double and triple duty- acting, dancing singing and serving as their own band.”

“Beautiful harmonies, VERY TALENTED instrument playing all around, and lots of heart.”

“The Curley-Clay twins hit another ball out of the park with the set. Unbelievable details (including a photo with Mickey and Oprah) and an adorable cow.”

Reviews, 2014 

“Joyous performances…a ringing endorsement of (cow)girl power.” Creative Loafing

“This is one where you sit back, enjoy a beverage, and prepare to have a ball. If you had seen Avenue Q… then this is right on scale with that quality.”  Publisher’s Feature Service

“The cast is amazing. Not only do they sound great, but they also play their own instruments, several of them each at that.” Atlanta Theatre Fans

Praise for Cowgirls (1999)

“An excellent cast brings down the honky-tonk.” 
–AJC

“A musical cast of honky-tonk angels”
- Creative Loafing ATL

“Go for great singing and clever songs, impressive fiddlin’…and a set so realistic you half expect to find cheap beer on tap at intermission.”
- E2 Atlanta
