Dear TCP Friends,
The health and safety of everyone in our community is a top priority of Tellico Community Players. From our patrons to our cast and crew and all of our volunteers, we want everyone to feel good – so we are implementing additional procedures to keep folks healthy!
We encourage our audience, actors and all volunteers to follow the widely-reported hygiene practices regarding hand washing, covering sneezes and coughs, and other common-sense precautions. These include –
- Wash hands frequently with soap and water, and for at least 20 seconds each time
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid close contact with people who are ill
- Avoid contact with other people if you are feeling ill
- Properly dispose of tissues after coughing, sneezing or blowing nose. Do not reuse tissues
TCP is committed to providing a comfortable and safe environment where our community can come together to experience live theatre. To this end, we have implemented the following health and safety precautions –
- Hand sanitizer has been placed in high-traffic public areas of our theater
- Theater seating areas are disinfected before and after every performance
Thank you for your continued support of the Tellico Community Players. We look forward to welcoming you to our theater soon!
Players team up with Little Italy for June productions
The Tellico Community Players are offering playgoers a unique experience for their June performances. They’re teaming with Little Italy, right next door to the Playhouse, to offer a package deal: a great Italian buffet, followed by four one-act plays on stage – Wednesday, June 9 through Sunday, June 13.
The ticket price of $31 pays for both the dinner and play productions. Tickets will go on sale beginning at noon on Monday, May 10 on the Players website: www.tellicocommunityplayhouse.org.
All four plays have a comedic side:
- “A Candle on the Table,” written by Patricia Clapp and directed by Players’ Artistic Director Sauni Rinehart is about three women in a nursing home who reveal life lessons, with gentle humor and a generous dash of truth.
- “Key Lime Pie,” written by Jason Milligan and directed by Players’ Technical Director Tony Licata, tells the tale of the hilarious journey of a lost ring in a travelling pie.
- “Sunday Dinner,” written by Tami Farmer and directed by Lisa Silverman follows the Puckett family as it wisecracks its way through a family meal.
- “Ya Want Fries with That?” written by Mike Willis and directed by Annette Dufty, is a funny story about an innovative new restaurant that really isn’t what it seems.
The plays are being directed by individuals that have been on the Players’ stage for multiple shows but have not had the opportunity to direct a play.
The Italian buffet will feature pizza, two types of pasta, garlic knots, salad, tea, water, and coffee. Patrons may bring their own alcoholic beverages to the restaurant and glasses will be provided (although as usual, no beverages may be brought into the theater).
For the June 9-12 performances, the buffet will run from 6 p.m. – 7:15 p.m., with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m. For the Sunday, June 13 date, the buffet will run from Noon – 1:15 p.m., with the show starting at 1:30 p.m.
All seats in the theater will be available for purchase, and the Players are making the wearing of masks optional. There will be hand sanitizers available throughout the theatre.
