Ten years ago avid collectors started with just one show – the Asheville Doll Show and have grown to include five locations across North Carolina and Tennessee.  During the  process they changed their name to Southeastern Doll Shows. They are committed to the joy, love and sharing of dolls and vintage toys! Everyone is welcome to either come and present as an exhibitor/seller or to come and browse to add to your personal collection. The Doll Shows are committed to a fun-filled environment and is a family-friendly event.

Sunday, May 1, 7:30pm-9:30pm

11920 Lebanon Rd, Mt. Juliet, TN

Playhouse 615

A two-act comedy about how wrong an IRS audit can go, especially if you file you and your roommate’s taxes as a “married” couple. The classic farce that everyone should be doing – especially around tax time! Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are straight out-of-work musicians who are best friends and roommates in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the “couple” they’re going to be investigated. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon’s fiancée, Kate. Complicating matters further, Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon’s back, Jon’s mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son’s fiancée, and Leslie’s ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won’t see her anymore. It’s like if you crossed “I Love Lucy” and “Some Like it Hot”.
