The Hardeman County Arts Council (HCAC) has brought live theatre to Hardeman County for more than 15 years. It continues in exemplary fashion as it opens its 2019/2020 season. Talented actors from Hardeman and its surrounding counties will grace our stage this season, so we can bring you four quality productions: Disney’s Beauty and The Beast JR., Sanders Family Christmas Smoke on the Mountain Part II, a dinner theatre and A Bad Year for Tomatoes.
The curtain will open to our new season on Friday, September 6, with:
Disney’s Beauty and The Beast JR.
Sanders Family Christmas Smoke on the Mountain Part II
“Sanders Family Christmas is the sequel to Connie Ray and Alan Bailey’s wildly successful bluegrass gospel musical Smoke on the Mountain. It’s December 24, 1941, and America is going to war. So is Dennis Sanders, of the Sanders Family Singers. Join Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe and the rest of the Sanders family as they send Dennis off with hilarious and touching stories and twenty-five Southern Gospel Christmas favorites.”
Friday, December 6, and Saturday, December 7, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Sunday, December 8, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Our annual dinner theatre production will be a western theme. Enjoying a delicious meal and comedic theatre is an excellent way to spend an evening out with your sweetheart or good friends.
Thursday, February 13, Friday, February 14, and Saturday, February 15, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
A Bad Year for Tomatoes
“Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven and settles down to write her autobiography. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy, omnipresent neighbors is a different matter. In an attempt to shoo them away, and gain some privacy, Myra invents a mad, homicidal sister—who is kept locked in an upstairs room, but who occasionally escapes long enough to scare off uninvited visitors. The ruse works well, at first, but complications result when the local handyman develops an affection for “Sister Sadie” (really Myra in a fright wig) and some of the more officious ladies decide it is their Christian duty to save the poor demented Sadie’s soul. In desperation Myra announces that her imaginary sibling has suddenly gone off to Boston—which brings on the sheriff and the suspicion of murder! Needless to say, all is straightened out in the end, but the uproarious doings will keep audiences laughing right up to the final curtain, and then some.”
Friday, May 15, and Saturday, May 16, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Sunday, May 17, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
