Southern Fried Funeral

FALL THEATRE PRODUCTION: SOUTHERN FRIED FUNERAL

Thursday – Sunday, October 27-30, 2016

7 p.m. Thurs-Sat, 2 pm. Sun, Center for the Arts, Theatre

 

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family -- Southern-style. Tickets may be purchased at the CFA Box Office or online at www.chipola.edu/boxoffice beginning October 5. $8 for adults and $6 for ages 18 and under.  For more information, contact the Box Office at 850-718-2420.

Chipola’s adaptation of the beloved 1964 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical.
