A Good Man is Hard to Find November 9 & 10 – Celebrating 30 years on Stage

For Immediate Release A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND COMES TO ALBANY MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM ON NOVEMBER 9 & 10 – CELEBRATING 30 YEARS ON STAGE! Albany, GA. (October 4, 2019) – The play, A Good Man is Hard to Find toured in the 1990’s for about 7-years, and is still remembered today from theatre goers throughout the United States. It’s about how men are viewed by women and their pursuit of a good man as well as how women are viewed by men as a good woman. The play depicts the many issues found in relationships between husbands and wives, and how their lives and relationships are impacted by outside influences of today’s society. It keeps the audience on the edge of their seat with lots of emotional turmoil from laughter to crying, from anger to happiness, from sadness to joy, and so on. It has an array of awesome messages intertwined in its twists and turns that the audience can’t wait to see what happens next. It has the ability to capture the audience so that they truly experience the power of forgiveness and reconciliation even in their own lives. It has received rave reviews from audiences across the country, and now it’s back by popular demand to kick off its 30-year reunion! This is one you don’t want to miss! A Good Man is Hard To Find is taking the stage of the Albany Municipal Auditorium on November 9 and 10. All tickets can be purchased online via or in person at the Albany Civic Center Box Office beginning October 8 at 10 AM. Please call the Albany Civic Center for additional information.

Masterpiece is a nonprofit organization established to teach, train, and expose kids, youth, and adults in the underserved communities to the performing arts as well as visual arts.
