SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY IN TWIN CITY
The crazy characters of Fayro, Texas return to the Emma Kelly stage on May 5-8 in Southern Hospitality, the second in the trilogy of laugh-out-loud, knee-slapping comedies that follow the escapades of the wacky Futrelle Sisters. A popular all-local cast performed Dearly Beloved, which was the first play of the series, last season and the response was so overwhelming that the only next logical step was to bring back the hijinks for a second time.
In Southern Hospitality, Frankie (Rachel Elkins), Twink (Nichole Deal), Honey Raye (Julie Moody) and Rhonda Lynn (Christie McLendon) are on a mission to save their beloved hometown. Ever since the Super SmartMart and the rendering plant closed, folks have been leaving Fayro in droves.
It seems a salsa manufacturing factory is looking to re-locate, and a company representative is headed to the small town on a scouting mission. Honey Raye makes promises that are not to be believed in order to woo the rep to choose Fayro.
In fact, Honey Raye has told them that on the very weekend of the rep’s visit, the town just happens to be having their biggest celebration of the year - “Fayro Days.” So now it’s up to the citizens of Fayro to quickly make her promises a reality.
Other beloved cast members include Alan Tyson, Eileen Baynes, Lee Walker, Pam Baggett, Jamey Saunders, Tate Miller, John Oglesby and Dena Walden. The May 14 Twin City performance is in the ECI Auditorium and is a fundraiser for the school's Drama Club.
