"The Red Velvet Cake War" at the Palestine Community Theatre

Palestine Community Theatre is gearing up for their annual fall show. This year PCT will present the Southern-fried comedy, The Red Velvet Cake War. In this riotously funny comedy, the three Verdeen cousins Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvettecould not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. Their outrageous antics have delighted local gossips in the small town of Sweetgum (just down the road from Fayro) and the eyes of Texas are upon them, as their self-righteous Aunt LaMerle is quick to point out. Having accidentally crashed her minivan through the bedroom wall of her husbands girlfriends doublewide, Gaynelle is one frazzled nerve away from a spectacular meltdown. Peaches, a saucy firebrand and the number one mortuarial cosmetologist in the tri-county area, is struggling to decide if its time to have her long-absent trucker husband declared dead. And Jimmie Wyvette, the rough-around-the-edges store manager of Whatleys Western Wear, is resorting to extreme measures to outmaneuver a priss-pot neighbor for the affections of Sweetgums newest widower. But the cousins can't back out of the reunion now. It's on and Gaynelle's hosting it; Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette have decided its success is the perfect way to prove Gaynelle's sanity to a skeptical court-appointed psychologist. 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. Things spin hilariously out of control when a neighbors 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 fast-paced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you'll wish your own family reunions were this much fun! PCT will give six performances of The Red Velvet Cake War. October 4,5,6 and 11,12, and 13. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30, Sunday matinees at 2 pm. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for children 17 & under.
