Every Thursday And Saturday evening March 17th 2018 - April 14th at 7:30 during Spring Pilgrimage.
It is azalea season in Natchez, Mississippi, and the annual pilgrimage of tourists is swarming through the historic mansions. In Mayweather Hall, Penelope Mayweather, a once beautiful Southern belle, is horrified by the tourists who are led through her home by an energetic guide at fifty cents a head. But the money isn’t enough to keep Penelope from the clutches of those “damn Yankees” down at the bank. Thus when a young author, John Salguod, turns up, she is persuaded to take him in as a roomer. However, it develops that John is visiting under an assumed name because he has written a book banned in Natchez. The locals consider it a gross libel on their way of life, but it is a best-seller everywhere else. Penelope’s frantic efforts to keep him hidden from her neighbors are frustrated when Carol, her soon-to-be-married, pretty young cousin, comes to spend the night. When her parents discover she stayed a second night, scandal looms. The irate parents, blaming Penelope, threaten to take over Mayweather Hall, which they can do by forcing foreclosure through the bank. But meantime John finds Penelope’s diary which she wrote over a period of forty years, giving embarrassing details about most of the town’s citizens. John’s publisher arrives on the first morning of the Pilgrimage and offers Penelope a fabulous sum for her memoirs and Mayweather Hall is out of hock!
