The Bainbridge Little Theatre was packed on Thursday night, with a sizable audience turning up for opening night of the theatre’s latest production, “May We All”, a country musical created by country music band Florida-Georgia Line, as well as Lively McCabe Entertainment and BMG. The play was the theatre’s first production of this season.

The base plot of the play, according to the official synopsis, reads: “May We All takes you to Harmony, Tennessee, “the town that sings”. Two years ago, local sensation, Jenna Coates, left Harmony to pursue her dreams of stardom in Nashville. Jenna must face the music and come back home. Will she be letting everyone down?”

The cast for the show was rather extensive, with the full cast list including:
