Auditions are scheduled for September 26 - 27 for Southern Hospitality, Hill Country Community Theatre's second production of its 2011-2012 season.
The cast for the "down-home" comedy, which is a sequel to HCCT's 2009 smash hit Christmas Belles, includes five men and eight women. The auditions are set for 7 p.m. each evening and will be held at the theatre, which is located at 2003 W. FM 2147 in Cottonwood Shores (click for map).
Written by Christmas Belles playwrights Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, Southern Hospitality again features the deep-fried antics of the Futrelle sisters. This time they're up to their elbows in trouble as they try to save their beloved hometown of Fayro, Texas, from extinction. Along the way--although presented as a hilarious farce--the play delivers a true testament to Southern strength and ingenuity.
Directed by veteran director Mary Ann Fletcher, HCCT's production of Southern Hospitality will be performed December 1-11, with 7:30 p.m. performances Thursday through Saturday and 2:15 p.m. matinees on Sunday afternoons.
Prior to retiring in 2008, Ms. Fletcher was the Director of Theatre and a teacher at Marble Falls High School for 21 years. She is a member of HCCT's Board of Governors, the Chair Pro-Tem of the Texas Coalition for Quality Arts Education, member and past secretary of the Highland Lakes Service League, and a volunteer for the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce.
