Once again, the curtain will go up at the "We Piddle Around Theater" in Brundidge when the Brundidge Historical Society and the Community Theater Group present the 2003 spring production of "Come Home, It's Suppertime."
Performance dates are 7 p.m. on April 10, 11 and 12 and April 24, 25 and 26.
Tickets are $20 each and include supper and the folklife play.
Tickets will be go on sale Saturday March 22, from 9a.m. until noon at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge. Tickets will also be available from 9 until 11 a.m. Monday, March 24, at Fraley's Frame Outlet on the square in Troy.
Telephone orders may be placed after 12 o'clock noon on March 24 by calling 735-3460 or 566-7363.
Dinah Kelsey, ticket committee chairperson, said tickets are sold on a first-come basis.
"Because 'Come Home, It's Suppertime," is a supper theater, seating is limited," she said. "We will take telephone orders but only after tickets have been made available in both Brundidge and Troy."
The stories told in "Come Home, It's Suppertime" are true stories and performed, as told by, by real life characters in and around Brundidge. However, the characters are composite characters - a little bit of one and a bit of another - so that they mix and blend to tell the story of Pike County folks during Hard Times and the good ol' days.
The play is dedicated these old-timers, and to future generations, for it is an obligation and privilege to remember them.
