2021 MAIN STAGE SEASON
Pamela Parker's Second Samuel Directed by Len Willis
Second Samuel is a poignant comedy/drama about family and
diversity. It’s a simpler time in the late 1940s, especially in South Georgia
and specifically in a sleepy little town called Second Samuel. What had been
called the Great Depression is quickly fading into memory. The war has been
won, the election is now over, and "Give 'em Hell Harry" is still
president. It’s been an exciting time for sure, but the folks in Second Samuel
are ready for things to settle down and get back to normal. Except—this is the
summer Miss Gertrude passes away, and deep dark secrets are about to be revealed.
Nobody could have imaged how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn
the entire town upside down, leaving everybody in Second Samuel wondering if
anything would ever be normal again! See dates in Calender
Suite Surrender is an all-out love note to those wonderful farces of the 30's and 40's. It's 1942, and the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel is under siege as two of Hollywood's biggest divas vie for the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and one pampered little lap dog round out this fall-down-laughing riot of a comedy. You’ll laugh until you cry! And then laugh all the way home!
Horton Foote's A Trip to Bountiful Directed by James Fisher
A Trip to Bountiful tells the story of Carrie Watts, an elderly woman who longs to return to her beloved hometown of Bountiful, Texas, one last time. Carrie’s controlling son, Ludie, and demanding daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae, forbid her to leave. However, while her son and daughter-in-law are gone for the day, Carrie flees to the bus station where she meets a young woman named Thelma. Together, the new friends travel toward Bountiful together, but when Carrie arrives in nearby Harrison, Texas, she discovers her beloved town isn’t the same as she remembered it.

Hope Bunch's Undercover Christmas Directed by Courtney Woolard
In Undercover Christmas, Doc Nash had a successful medical
career in the big city, but after losing his wife a few years ago, he decided
to return to his childhood home in Baynesville, Virginia, where he set up a
clinic offering free medical care for the town’s residents. The clinic is
a vital part of the community; however, with recent cuts in funding and a dip
in the economy, the clinic is struggling financially. With a stack of unpaid
bills and no money in the bank, the future of this little clinic remains
uncertain. But God has other plans in the works as a homeless patient changes
the clinic forever.
