Garland Civic Theatre presents the brightly satiric comedy, “Mrs. California,” by Doris Baizley. It pokes wicked good fun at the pretentious hokum of a hotly contested homemakers’ competition. This production will run Fridays and Saturdays, October 16-November 7, 2015 at 8 p.m. with Sunday performances on October 18 and 25, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. There is a Thursday performance on October 15, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $22 at GarlandArtsBoxOffice.com or 972-205-2790.
