In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father's funeral, the Turpin's other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.

In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the three Verdeen cousins could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. Things spin hilariously out of control when a neighbor’s pet devours everything edible, a one-eyed suitor shows up to declare his love, and a jaw-dropping high-stakes wager is made on who bakes the best red velvet cake. As this fastpaced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this much fun!

  Volunteer and Donation Opportunities:

Producing three great shows takes a lot of work, a lot of help, and a lot of snacks for hungry teenagers. The students cannot do it without your help! Please consider volunteering at the shows and or donating snacks, water or concession items. Please see our on-line sign up for opportunities to get involved and ways to make a donation.

To make donating easier we have included a link to two Amazon Wish Lists, where you can purchase items and have them shipped directly to the school, as well as a link to make a cash donation through PayPal. Booster club volunteers will use any money donated to purchase the items needed.
