Community Theatre prepares for this year’s performance

The Community Theatre in Woonsocket will present Faith County, a comedy, Thursday and Friday, March 21 and 22. Thursday evening, March 21, a Dinner/Theatre will be served at 6 p.m. and the play will start at 7 p.m. The meal consists of BBQ ribs, cheesy hash browns, dessert and a drink. Advanced tickets cost $15 for kids in grades K-6 and $20 for adults; these tickets are required for you to attend both the meal and the play. Advanced tickets will be sold at Express Stop, Express 2 and Woony Foods. 

Advanced tickets are not required to just attend the play on Thursday without taking part in the meal. Also, a person does not have to pay for the meal if they just want to go to the play on Thursday night. Admission for the play only on both Thursday and Friday is $5 for kids in grades K-6 and $8 for adults. Tickets for the play only on Thursday night and for Friday night can be purchased at the door. The play and Thursday’s meal will be held at the Community Event Center in Woonsocket. Money raised will go towards purchasing curtains and more microphones.

In addition, the theatre group will be accepting donations to go towards curtains for the stage. Anyone who would like to help them purchase curtains can drop donations off at the Community Event Center on either night of the play or mail a donation to Community Event Center, c/o Bernie Davis, PO Box 95, Woonsocket, SD 57385. Checks are to be made payable to Community Theatre. 

Following is a short description of what this year’s play, Faith County, is about: “Somewhere in the middle of nowhere in the South, there’s a place where the beehive hairdo is still the rage and Saturday nights are reserved for the tractor pull in nearby Pickler. A colorful collection of good ole country folk gather ‘round for this year’s county fair, and there’s stiff competition in the Arts and Crafts category.”

This year’s cast members are Becky Potrament, Jordan VonEye, Lisa Snedeker, Jack Davis, Tom Fouberg, Anita Brick, Kathy McWhorter, Amanda Kilcoin and Rikki Johnson. They are directed by Bernie Davis.
