Outdoor Event: Palace Courtyard
October 9 -- November 8, 2020

Steel Magnolias

By Robert Harling

Truvy’s salon is Chinquapin, Louisiana’s go-to place for a beauty fix with a hearty side of gossip. Along with her overeager assistant Annelle, Truvy pampers her small-town clients with hairdos, manicures, and all kinds of unsolicited advice. Anybody who’s anybody is a regular: There’s the doting M’Lynn and her soon-to-be-married daughter Shelby, the moody Ouiser, and the well-to-do widow Clairee. Through witty banter and wisecracks, this hodgepodge group of women form friendships as strong as steel, which they are forced to lean on when tragedy strikes.

This production will be outdoors in the Palace Courtyard behind the theatre with a stage, props, lights and ushers. There will be a 6 feet separation between groups and masks are required. There will be snacks and drinks for sale, but you can bring your own. October nights in Texas are magical with a cool breeze and lights hanging from the trees.

Masks are required at all times, even when sitting in your seat but can be removed for eating or drinking.

The Addams Family steps out of Charles Addams' cartoons. They live with all of the trappings of the macabre (including a detached hand for a servant) and are quite wealthy. Added to this mix is a crooked accountant and his loan shark and a plot to slip the shark's son into the family as their long-lost Uncle Fester. Can the false Fester find his way into the vault before he is discovered?

Indoors on the Springer Stage
November 27 - December 20, 2020

A Tuna Christmas

By Jaston Williams, Joe Sears & Ed Howard

A Tuna Christmas is a broad comedy set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas. The plot centers on the town's annual Christmas Yard Display Contest, won 14 times in a row by Vera Carp. A mysterious "Christmas Phantom," known for vandalizing the yard displays, has the contestants on edge. Among the subplots are Stanley Bumiller's attempts to end his probation and leave Tuna, Bertha Bumiller's struggle to hold her family together at Christmastime, and Joe Bob Lipsey's fight to mount successfully his production of A Christmas Carol despite the town controller of the electric company threatening to turn the lights off. The play is both an affectionate commentary and withering satire of small town, Southern life and attitudes. Two actors play all 20 zany characters.

This production will be indoors in the Palace Theatre on the Springer Stage. There will be a 2 seat seperation between groups and empty rows every other row. Masks are required, even when sitting in your seat. No concessions will be sold at this time. 

Updated protocols for inside shows include, but are not limited to: temperature checks at the door, masks required at all times, hand-sanitizer for every patron, frequent sanitizing of all surfaces, and 6 ft spacing between all groups, new Merv 11 air filters, an AC system that completely changes out the air in the building twice every hour and Bipolar Ionization in our AC units.
