Alabama’s Official Folklife Play, “Come Home, It’s Suppertime,” has been named one of the Alabama Tourism Department’s Top 10 Events for 2015.

That’s a badge of honor that the cast and crew wear proudly.

“Any time that you’re included with 10 events that include the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March in Selma and the Iron Bowl in Auburn that’s reason to be proud,” said Lawrence Bowden, president of Brundidge Historical Society which produces the original folklife play at the We Piddle Around Theater in Brundidge. “We are honored by the recognition and it also puts a little pressure on us, especially, since we took an unexpected and unplanned break in the spring.

“But we are excited to be back and are looking forward to folks coming home to the We Piddle Around Theater at suppertime.

“Come Home, It’s Suppertime” is celebrating 14 years this fall and the 45- member cast and crew will include several original members, a nucleus of long-time members and a few new faces. The play will be under the co-direction of Ursula Bryant and Chris Foster.”

“Because we took a break in the spring, we started rehearsals a little early and everyone has come back with renewed enthusiasm and ready to get back on stage,” Bryant said. “We’ve got some new faces and made quite a few changes in the script and we’re looking for a great fall season.”

The play dates for the fall production of “Come Home, It’s Suppertime” are Nov. 5, 6 and 7 and 12, 13 and 14.

“At $25, we believe that we’ve still got the best ticket in town,” Bryant said. “The price of the tickets includes the pre-show, a full, country-style supper with dessert and the award-winning, two-act play. And, we take a lot of pride in our theater. The atmosphere is unique and we can promise a good night on the town.”

Tickets for the fall production of “Come Home, It’s Suppertime” are available by calling 334-685-5524 or 670-6302.

Reservations are also being taken for the BHS’ Chili Country Christmas featuring nationally acclaimed storyteller, Andy Offutt Irwin on Dec. 11.
