2016 Southern Hospitality Drama Production

2015-16 Spring Drama

“Southern Hospitality”
by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten

The Futrelle Sisters—Frankie, Twink, Honey Raye, and Rhonda Lynn—are in trouble again! This time, the problem is bigger than ever: Their beloved hometown, Fayro, Texas, is in danger of disappearing, and it’s up to the sisters to save it from extinction. Ever since the Super SmartMart and the rendering plant closed, folks have been leaving Fayro in droves, but it seems a salsa manufacturing factory is looking to relocate, and a company representative is headed to Fayro on a scouting mission. In an effort to show overwhelming southern hospitality, Honey Raye makes promises that are not to be believed in order to woo the rep to choose Fayro. As one disaster follows another, it looks as if all hope is lost. But how the Futrelle sisters and the other citizens of Fayro pull together and save their town is a testament to Southern strength and ingenuity—and a recipe for total hilarity.

2014-15 Spring Drama

Clarence Day’s “Life with Father ”
A Comedy in Three Acts
by Howard Lindsey and Russel Crouse

Life With Father is a story about the life and times of an upper-middle class family living in New York in the 1880s.  Mr. Clarence Day is a successful stockbroker who tries to run his household with the same meticulous efficiency of his office.  In spite of his best efforts, his wife always manages to outwit him with her affectionate but zany logic. Add to the mix four children, visiting relatives, a minister, and a plot to have Father Day properly baptized, and you have a hit play that became one of the longest running non-musical plays on Broadway. 

The play is based on stories written by Clarence Day in 1935 about his father “Clair” Day, Sr., and first appeared in 1936 in the New Yorker magazine.

2013-14 Spring Drama

“13 Past Midnight ”
by Billy St. John

When powerful millionaire Victor Winslow, producer of a popular T.V. soap opera, invites members of the cast and crew to his mansion for a party, none dares refuse. Winslow informs his guests that he has assembled them to help him develop a new murder mystery game he’s invented called “13 Past Midnight.” But before the game begins, the host gives the players ample motives to want to kill him – for real! But the game becomes deadly when Victor is found murdered, and Pete Griffin, a private investigator hired to act as a consultant, must try to trap the murderer before he or she can strike again. Filled with laughs and chills, Thirteen Past Midnight will make your audience think twice before accepting an invitation to a murder mystery evening!

2012-13 Spring Drama

“You Can’t Take It With You ”
by Moss Hart and George Kaufman

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attrictive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress. No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Roberta; nor of Grandpa’s interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn’t believe in the income tax.

2011-12 Spring Drama

“Play On! ”
by Rick Abbot

Perfect for any theatre group, this is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. When the authoress decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.

2010-11 Spring Drama

“A Turn for the Nurse ”
by Rick Abbot

Lovelorn millionaire Oliver Stratton can’t recall the name and address of the only woman he’ll ever love and decides to go to Tibet leaving his fortune to nurse Peggy. This causes the entire household (no-good nephew Derek, his lover Sylvia, Oliver’s noble son George, Oliver’s lady lawyer and even the butler and maid) to devise complex ways to get the will changed in their favor or get into the safe containing the estate’s liquidated assets in cold cash. When the Tibetan lamasery recruiter comes to claim Oliver, Derek plots to convince Oliver that Peggy is addicted to drink and unworthy to inherit. He brings in anti-drink crusader Cora Van Beck to rehabilitate stone-sober Peggy. Plot partnerships, betrayals, zany ploys plus all sorts of devices are used in this screamingly funny show in which the secret killer prepares to bump Oliver off when the will gets rewritten the right way. A hilarious, audience-pleasing hit.
