Carriage House Players’ production, “Southern Hospitality”, is in its final week of performances with shows Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, May 8-10, at the Fayetteville/Lincoln County Museum and Civic Center.

Written by the award winning trio of Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, the play features the Futrelle sisters, Rhonda Lynn, Honey Raye, Twink and Frankie, who are working hard to save the town of Fayro from meeting its end. The possibility of a salsa factory moving to town has everyone excited, and the sisters along with their family and friends have planned a Fayro Days festival to lure the factory and its owner to town.

In the midst of all of the preparation, Dub’s mean old Aunt Iney is coming to visit Frankie and him with the promise of news to share. Before Iney can share her news, she drops dead at the breakfast table. Hilarity ensues as they try to hide a dead body from the salsa executive while simultaneously trying to impress them with all that Fayro has to offer.

With Andrea Delap as the director and Sarah Butler as assistant director, the play’s cast includes Brenda Wilkes, Sara Jo Pierce, Sharon Williams, Tammy Haney, Kim Gray, Brandi Barnes, Ben Spears, Truman Carroll, Mark Mitchell, Tommy Ward, Lisa Adams, Nancy West, and Randy Neely.

Curtain time is at 7 p.m. each evening at the Museum Theatre. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $8 for students, and are available at Bagley & Bagley Insurance, Carter’s Drugstore, The Flower House, Parks City Branch of Regions Bank, The Book Inn, and Sissy’s Antiques. Reservations can also be made by calling (931) 433-1300 or emailing carriagehouseplayers@gmail.com, and they’ll gladly have your tickets for you at the door.
