Vanities is a laugh-out-loud poignant comedy about the growth of a friendship among three small town women coming of age in the 1960s and ’70s. Staged in the Canton Spoon River College Theater in Taylor Hall, Vanities runs Friday, August 18 @ 7:00 p.m., Saturday, August 19 @ 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 20 at 3:00 p.m.  Tickets are now on sale.

The production features veteran actresses Sara Mathis, Corrinna Markland, and Lindsey Ridenour Larson as best friends growing up in Texas during a time when women’s roles were changing.  Their adaptations provide hilarious moments as well as realistic approaches to life before, during and after the Age of Aquarius. Vanities is directed by Carol Davis.

Featured in the production will be live performances of Top 40 music from 1963 to 1974.

General admission tickets may be reserved by calling (309) 649-6260 or by emailing

Vanities had one of the longest Off-Broadway runs on record. The comedy opened at Playwrights Horizons, New York City on January 15, 1976, for 13 performances, and then transferred to the Chelsea Theatre Center (now the Westside Theatre) where it ran for 1,785 performances. Newsweek, the New York Post, and New York Magazine declared it “unnervingly funny,” a “brilliant clever play,” and “uncommonly attractive.”

The 2017-18 Chorus season continues in December with Snowflakes and Songs on December 2 and 3; A Tuna Christmas at Big Horse Vineyards on December 16 and 17; and Fiddler on the Roof in June 2018.
