Real Women Have Curves

Five "Full-Figured" Women Take Center Stage At LaBelle Theater

LABELLE, FL. -- LaBelle's Firehouse Community Theatre presents Real Women Have Curves written by Josefina Lopez and directed by Joel Hawkins beginning January 10th. 

Set in a tiny sewing factory in East L.A., this is the outrageously funny story of five full-figured Mexican-American women who are racing to meet nearly impossible production deadlines in order to keep their tiny factory from going under. 

A microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience, Real Women Have Curves is a play that celebrates real women's bodies, the power of women and the incredible bond that happens when women work together.

Spotlight On Myra Johnson - 

Myra Johnson first became involved in community theater while in Destin Beach, during her time in the Navy. She served in the Navy for nine years, and was the first female Commander of the American Legion in LaBelle.

Myra is a veteran of the Firehouse stage and is currently serves as one of our Board Members. She became involved with the Firehouse Community Theatre in 2006 when her son, Corbin, started getting involved in the children's program. (Look for Corbin and Novie in our upcoming productions; the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this family!)

Myra has worked for Hendry County for nine years as our Planning and Zoning Coordinator. She is a Florida native, born in Naples, and she has four amazing kids and a wonderful husband.
