Published 11:00 pm Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Tickets for the 2013 fall production of “Come Home, It’s Suppertime,” at the We Piddle Around Theater in Brundidge go on sale at 8 a.m. today at studio 116 in downtown Brundidge or by calling 334-735-3125.

Play dates are Nov. 7, 8 and 9 and 14, 15 and 16. Tickets are $25 and include the pre-show, a full country supper served family style and the original and award winning, two-act folklife play.

“Ticket prices remain the same as the past seven or eight years,” said Les Jackson, play committee chair. “The cast, the musicians and the crew are all volunteers so nobody gets paid and that enables us to keep the price affordable. We all enjoy what we do. We’re like family and we sure do enjoy having company.”

Jackson said, as always, the play features something familiar and something new. He said “familiar,” not old, but there are several “old standbys” that are the core of “Come Home.”

“We really depend on those who have been with us over the years and several have been with ‘Come Home’ for all 12 years,” he said. “The cast, musicians and crew number around 45. We consider those who have been with the play five years or more seasoned veterans and we’ve got a large number of them.

“We have made some changes in the script that add more spice and flavor,” Jackson said.

“We have several new cast members and we appreciate the new energy they bring to the play. They have all quickly become a part of our family.”

Bill Hazen of Troy has returned as director.

“Bill’s plans were to move to Virginia but we’re glad those plans changed and he’s back with us,” Jackson said.

“Come Home, It’s Suppertime” is Alabama’s Official Folklife Play and was the recipient of the 2008 Governor’s Tourism Award. The play is a production of the Brundidge Historical Society.

More than 20,000 people from eight states and several foreign countries have “come home” to supper at the We Piddle Around Theater.
