Our Next Main Series Show November 10-19

Performances of Temple Civic Theatre's next main-series production, Southern Fried Funeral, will begin November 10. Evening performances (7:30 p.m.) will be November 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18. Matinee performances (2:30 p.m.) will be November 12 and 19. Director will be Rob Wilds.

Reserved seat tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for students and children. They are available at our online box office 24/7. The Box Office, staffed by a live person, opens at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 31. Box office hours are 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and one hour before showtime. 

Daddy Dewey Frye has died suddenly and unexpectedly during a speech at the Rotary Club luncheon, and his now-widowed wife Dorothy (Georgie McAteer) is expected to make "all the necessary arrangements" while ensuring everyone's happy with her choices.

Not only does she have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks (Jennifer Levine) sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother (Michael Fruge) making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters (Debbie Cable Brown and Rebecca Johnson) reliving their childhood rivalry. Then there's the boy, Dewey Jr. (Daniel Becker) who's kind of slow, but has a good heart.

Add in the family lawyer (Sam Wilds), a son-in-law (Justin Everett), Dorothy's best friend (Ruby Jett), another friend she's known for years (Tiffany Jarosek) plus the deceased's best friend (Keith Hammons) for a big-hearted comedy about family — Southern-style.

In the south, funerals are huge social events — gathering all manner of family and friends together for an impromptu reunion to share stories, tears and laughter, replete with a “grief buffet” that features a groaning sideboard laden with enough fried chicken, mushroom soup-laced casseroles, deviled eggs and pecan pie to feed an army.

Production staff includes Rob Wilds, director; Thomas Muhn, technical director; and Meghan Spear, stage manager.
