CUMMING, Ga. — North Georgia playwright, producer, performer and director Jeneen Hammond will debut a new original musical at the Cumming Playhouse during a two-weekend run from July 20-30. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays.

“Get in the Habit” is a heavenly musical comedy that tells the story of a group of displaced singing nuns and their monsignor who find themselves in the heart of New Orleans. Being originally from “up North,” the members of this group quickly begin suffering from a wide range of cultural shocks as they try to incorporate themselves into a Southern convent.

“This show has been so much fun to create and to see come to life with our amazingly talented cast,” Hammond said. “It’s filled with laughs and so many great moments that audiences won’t soon forget it.”

With its live, four-piece band, “Get in the Habit” also offers more than a dozen songs, most of which are original pieces written by Hammond, songwriter Felice Williams and cast member Juawanna McGhee.

Hammond, who has been writing and directing original shows for schools and churches for more than 20 years, said the multi-cultural cast of about 20 members is made up of many veteran performers, as well as some new young talents.

Tickets to “Get in the Habit” at the Cumming Playhouse are $20 or $15 for seniors 60 and over, students 18 and under, veterans, and groups of 25 or more. Go to playhousecumming.com or call 770-781-9178 to order tickets or for more information.
