Submitted By Tater  Patch Players

Tuesdays with Morrie, based on the book by Mitch Albom, opens this Friday for three weekends at the Tater Patch Players theater. This play, based on the prize-winning book read by millions, tells the story of a writer who reconnects with his terminally-ill college professor and how their final weeks together make them laugh, cry, and grow into better humans.  

The inherently sad story is generously flavored with humor and love and the two-person cast (Gary Collier and Tony Graham) bring the story vividly to life. This is one you will not want to miss. 

Show dates, times and prices below in ad. Tickets can be bought in advance at taterpatchplayers.org or on show nights at the theater (95 Philadelphia Lane, Jasper) beginning 1 hour before showtimes.  Tater Patch representatives can be reached at 706-253-2800 or taterpatchplayers@gmail.com with any questions.

Auditions for Exit laughing

We will be holding auditions for our next play.  This will be a comedy by Paul Elliot, Exit Laughing.

The story: When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the “girls,” what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you’re Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you’ve ever done. You “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of their lives begins with a police raid, a “stripper”, laughs, and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you’re truly living. The cast is composed of three “mature” ladies, the bridge players, the college age daughter of one of them, and a college age young man who pays his way through college with a number of creative part-time jobs. 

The actor playing the young man, must be physically fit and agree to appear as a male dancer (this actor must simulate a “rent a stripper”, but NOT strip completely. He will be auditioned separately. This is all in good fun and never in bad taste, trust us. 

Director Phyllis Zerkle and her assistant, Elizabeth Mullis, are excited to cast this show and begin rehearsals. The play will run for three weekends beginning September 13.  

The auditions will be Sunday, July 14 from 5:30—7 and Tuesday July 16 from 6-8 p.m. at the theater.
