Six seniors will take the stage for May River Theatre’s third show of the season, You Haven’t Changed a Bit (And Other Lies), playing November 6 through 22 at Bluffton’s May River Theatre. The adventures of aging are filtered through three married couples in their 60s who have known each other for more than 30 years in this riotous Baby Boomer musical. They plan to renew their wedding vows in a combined ceremony. The musical romps through the trials and tribulations of retirement and lasting love prior to the ceremony.
