The Savannah Disputation by Evan Smith
April 25, 26, 27 and May 2, 3, 4
A special announcement: The April 27 performance of The Savannah Disputation will be a benefit for Relay for Life. Ten percent of all ticket sales for that date will go to support this important cause.
This “theological comedy” is a welcome bonus in our rich 2014 season. This is a warm, thoughtful comedy of two sisters, devoutly Catholic, their priest — perhaps a bit more open to other ideas– and a young evangelist who comes to the door. One reviewer said the show is “drenched in southern charm, infused with a pinch of hellfire”. Another called it “the theological version of The Golden Girls”.
Returning to Tater Patch to both direct and act in this show is veteran actor Whit Davies. Whit has assembled a strong cast of Thelma Cagle, Pat Northcutt and Tracey Gibson.
The two unmarried sisters, with diverse outlooks on life, as siblings often have, view the persistent evangelist who appears at their doorway with different attitudes. The attempt by one of them to “ambush” her by trying to set up a confrontation with their amiable priest leads to the disputation named in the play. Surprising, enlightening, and often very, very funny, the conclusion will surely amuse our audiences.
The show will be performed April 25*, 26 and May 2, 3 at 7:30. The Sunday shows, April 27 and May 4 will be at 2 PM. The theater is located behind Wal-Mart at 95 Philadelphia Lane. Tickets are $15 for Adults, $14 for seniors and students, and $12 for Tater Patch 2014 Season Ticket holders and may be bought online by clicking the “buy tickets” button at the top left of this email, or at the theater beginning one hour before showtime.
For those unable to afford tickets at this time, Tater Patch presents it’s Share Night on April 24. Come preview the play in its final rehearsal and bring a bag of non-perishable food or toiletry items to share with the CARES food pantry, and share in the rich comedy of this play.
* April 25, at the Sharptop Arts Association, there will be a reception for their April Showers show. The reception start time was moved to 5PM to let you attend there, then come to opening night of The Savannah Disputation. Thank you, Sharptop Arts!
We need your support ~ ways you can help
No theater or arts group in the country can pay for its production by ticket sales alone. Buying tickets helps us and entertains you. We generally finance all the shows from their own revenues and our casts, crews and front of house staff are all volunteers. The work of our volunteers is amazing, but paying the mortgage requires more than talent and dedication. Yes, our bankers, insurers, and others we do business with want cash. Ticket prices alone don’t cover our expenses. We need donors, advertisers, and sponsors. Many people write extra checks this time of year to support their favorite non-profit 501(c)3 organizations. Won’t you consider including Tater Patch Players in your year-end giving? To learn about ways to donate to YOUR community theater read the President’s message at the top of this page or click here
