Volunteers are in full bloom as new and old performers dedicate the next month to Southeast Alabama Community Theatre’s production of Second Samuel. Set in 1940s Georgia, the inhabitants of this sleepy southern town prepare for the funeral of one of their most beloved citizens. Pamela Parker’s script weaves humor and drama with live bluegrass and gospel music provided by Dothan’s own Pure and Simple Bluegrass. The dramatic comedy is on stage at the Cultural Arts Center April 28 – May 3.

Told through the eyes and memories of the mentally challenged B Flat (Caleb Brooks), we meet the folks of Second Samuel as they deal with a most unusual circumstance. B Flat’s best friend, US (Demetrius Butler), is used to the status quo. Grumpy Mr. Mozel (David Culpepper) and homecoming queen Jimmy DeeAnne (Jennifer Doherty) like it just fine, too. It’s up to Frisky and Ms. Omaha Nebraska (Eric Collier and Nancy Brooks), Mansel and Marcella (Foyel Brunson and Eddie Farnham), and sweet young Ruby (Anna Kate Patterson) to make sure right wins out over righteousness.

Second Samuel tells a gentle tale of small town life with some wonderful messages about acceptance and love. Each performance runs 2 hours with one 15 minute intermission. SEACT considers the content “PG”. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, April 14 through SEACT.com and the SEACT office located at 909 South St. Andrews Street inside the Cultural Arts Center in Dothan. Office hours are 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM daily.

This comedy and drama by Pamela Parker revisits a simpler time in the late 1940s. Specifically, a sleepy, south Georgia town called Second Samuel. The Great Depression is quickly fading into memory. The war was won, the election is over, and “Give ‘em Hell Harry” is still President. The folks in Second Samuel are ready for things to settle down and get back to normal. Except—this was the summer Miss Gertrude passed away, and deep dark secrets are about to be revealed. How could the death of one sweet little old lady turn the entire town upside down?

Tickets go on sale for this SEACT show April 14. Pamela Parker’s Second Samuel is at the Cultural Arts Center Apr. 29 – May 3.

 

2014 SEACT SUMMER CAMP LOGO

4-Weeks

ABOUT CAMP
There are two scripts with two separate casts comprised of ages 5-16 years, and roughly divided between a younger and an older group. In each of the daily sessions campers are taught the basics of theatre and rehearse a play to be performed before an audience of family and guests. Each camp runs Monday-Friday, 8:30-Noon. The cast performances begin Friday at noon, followed by a cast party in the Cultural Arts Center Banquet Hall, all wrapping up around 2:00.

COST
$100 per child for SEACT Season Ticket Holders, $120 for non-subscribers.
Tuition covers the cost of rehearsal materials, a T‐shirt, cast photo, and cast party. Your only other expense will be for personal costume items, if necessary, and the option of a souvenir performance DVD.

SEACT’s Summer Camp is made possible thanks to SEACT Contributors through season ticket sales, and local families and businesses. The SEACT office and classrooms are located inside the Cultural Arts Center at 909 S. St. Andrews Street in downtown Dothan.
