The Tater Patch Players have unfinished business. The Aurelia Women's League Flower and Garden Gala Planning Committee was up and running. The hilarious crowd pleaser was interrupted mid show by a flood that covered the first floor of the theater. Repairs have been made to the building and the Aurelia Women's League is ready to resume work planning the annual flower and garden show gala. There are many things that need to be discussed, such as a venue, a menu, and most importantly, a theme.
Clarinda, played by Audrey Kirsten, is all business and seems to have most of the answers before the committee can decide for themselves. Lynette is our hostess for the meeting. She is played by Deb Heimler. Lynette is a great cook but a bit ditzy. The cast is rounded out with Jennie Hutto Smith as Mary Martha, Jan Simpson as Betty Clair (will she ever stop laughing?) and April Miller who insists on being called Skipper.
As the show progresses, many lessons are learned but the laughs never end. Come and join in on the fun.
Opening night is March 5 at 7:30 p.m. The show will run for three weekends with the Sunday shows starting at 2 p.m. March 4th at 7:30 is share night. Bring non perishable food for CARES and see the final dress rehearsal for free.
We are taking many precautions such as sanitizing and social distancing, so bring your mask and join us for a fun night. You can buy tickets online at www.taterpatchplayers.org. All seats are $10 and there is no assigned seating. The theater is located at 95 Philadelphia Lane in Jasper.
