The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bear Stage Players present “The Red Velvet Cake War”

Special to The Leader
The Orange Leader

LITTLE CYPRESS — The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bear Stage Players are proud to present their first production of the 2013-2014 school year.

“The Red Velvet Cake War” by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten is a riotously funny Southern-fried comedy that shares the crazy antics of the Verdeen cousins – Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette. The cousins are hosting a family reunion in their hometown of Sweetgum, Texas and bet their mean old Aunt LaMerle that they can whip up a red velvet cake that beats the pants off hers! Unfortunately, they face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest day of July smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season.

The cast of 12 and crew of eight will present the show to the public on at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12, 2:30 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 13 and at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 14. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students and can be purchased at the door.

Don’t miss this hilarious romp of a comedy that will have you laughing from start to finish. The students are under the direction of LC-M Theatre Director Cory Broom.
