We are proud to present our 2016-17 season!
Three fantastic shows accompanied by some fantastic news: we will once again be performing at the centrally located Decatur Civic Center! With plenty of dining options pre-show and destinations for after-show gatherings, we are excited to be back downtown!
And just what exactly will we be performing downtown? Let’s take a look!
THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL
October 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23
Life is not ideal for Jeannie and Norbert Garstecki in the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park — she’s agoraphobic and he hates his job. But they’ve made it work for twenty years. Change is in store, though, when Norbert falls for Pippi, a stripper-on-the-run from her Magic Marker sniffing, dimwitted boyfriend Duke.
The Great American Trailer Park Musical features a lively and hilarious score, and has more laughs than any trailer park could hold.
VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE
February 2017 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26
Adult siblings Vanya and Sonia live together in their childhood home surrounded by regrets, unfulfilled aspirations, and, Cassandra, their clairvoyant cleaning woman. Neither sibling works; their movie-star sister Masha pays the bills. That’s the problem; Masha wants to sell the house. So she decides to pay a visit accompanied by her boy-toy Spike. What follows? Comedic scheming of the highest order, of course!
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike was nominated for six Tony awards in 2013 including Best Play. It won the Drama Desk Award for Best Play.
THE LAST ROUND-UP OF THE GUACAMOLE QUEENS
April 2015 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30
Officials are fixin’ to teardown Sweetgum High School, the beloved alma mater of the Verdeen cousins – Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmie Wyvette. The ladies are determined, despite obstacles as big as Texas itself, to hold one last reunion in the old school and crown one final Guacamole Queen. But surrounded by a gaggle of friends and exes who make ‘eccentric’ seem like an understatement – is this even possible?
Last Round-Up of the Guacamole Queens has been described quite aptly as one “deliciously funny Southern-fried comedy.” Written by the team of Jones-Hope-Wooten, authors of The Hallelujah Girls and The Dixie Swim Club, this show will have you laughing in the aisles!
