Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will? opens April 13th
The Center for the Arts’ Rooftop Productions presents its spring comedy “Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will?” When widowed patriarch, Buford Turnover, has a debilitating stroke, his dysfunctional family gathers to await the impending death of their father and the all important reading of the will. The squabbling siblings from a small Texas town run the gambit from Orville Turnover, a mean redneck trash collector, played by Dan Miller to Lurlene, the church lady, played by Grace Erdman. Youngest daughter, Evalita, portrayed by Sarah LaFantasie, is six times divorced and has just picked up her next choice of husbands, while hitchhiking across the country.
This fast paced comedy written by Del Shores and directed by Ted Ballard brings humor and outrageous characters together for an all together fun night at the theatre. Sarah Akers, Sherry Bendt, Holly Czuchna, John Bucsko, and Rodrigo Pool create the additional zany mix of family members who are determined to either fight it out or bring harmony to the family.
“Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will” runs Fridays and Saturdays, April 13-28 at 8pm in the Kellar Theater at the Center for the Arts at the Candy Factory, 9419 Battle Street, Manassas. Ticket are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors 65+. Purchase tickets online at www.center-for-the-arts.org or call the Center for the Arts at 703-330-2787.
