Current Season

Southern Fried Funeral

Directed by Anna Branam
at Greenlee Theater at M.A.C.A.

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces — that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception.

Auditions: July 10, 11
Performances: September 8-9, 15-17

A Christmas Carol

Directed by Ken Davis
at Greenlee Theater at M.A.C.A.

Dramatized with flair and wit in a version first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company, this adaptation of the ageless story captures Dickens' ironic point of view while it creates a panoramic view of Victorian London. All of the much loved characters are in place. A Christmas Carol is exactly like the extraordinary tale: boisterous, sentimenal and compassionate; fairy tale and social criticism; moral parable and family entertainment appealing to the grown-up in children and the child in the grown-ups.

Auditions: September 11, 12
Performances: November 3-5, 10-11

The 2014 & 2015 editions of Legends Musical Revue were record-breaking, crowd-pleasing shows! Allow yourself to be swept away in a catalog of timeless classic songs from the great music of the 60's, 70's and 80's Decades. Hear songs of "legendary" artists: Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Beach Boys, The Beatles, Earth Wind and Fire, Madonna, etc. Gotcha Groove, western North Carolina's premier party band, will be joined by additional instrumentalists, and an incredible ensemble of talented local vocalists and dancers. They will make it difficult for you to stay in your seat rather than dance in the aisles!

Performances: March 16-18

August: Osage County

Directed by Treavor Gouge
at Greenlee Theater at M.A.C.A.

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly — and uproariously — exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family. "This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the dinner table with the great American faimly plays." — Time Magazine

Auditions: April 2, 3
Performances: June 8-10, 15-16
