Our 2017 Spring Production

Southern Fried Funeral 2 Auditions for our spring production of the comedy, Southern Fried Funeral will be January 30 and 31 at 7:00 PM at Carysbrook Performing Arts Center, with call-backs on February 1. The performance dates are April 22, 23, 28, 29, & 30. Auditions require no memorization, just cold-reading from the script.

“Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces — that is if they don’t kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she’s also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey’s snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family — Southern-style.”
