NORWICH – The Chenango Community Players (CCP) are currently in production for the new comedy, “Dearly Beloved.” Authored by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, this prequel to “Christmas Belles,” was also conceived in true Southern flavor.
Under the direction of Richard Heim, with Assistant Directors Mike McCollough and Patti Carnrike, it will be performed Friday and Saturday at the Chenango County Council of the Arts’ Martin W. Kappel Theatre in Norwich.
“Dearly Beloved” involves the three squabbling Futrelle sisters: Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye. Wedding bells are ringing (or trying to), in Fayo, Texas, for an antebellum-inspired ceremony. High hopes turn to comedic disasters as a potluck supper replaces the caterer and the prodigal Honey Raye arrives at the church (having hot flashes) in skintight gold lamé determined to right old family wrongs. Add to that, the young bride and groom has fled to elope. How can the sisters keep the unsuspecting guests in the pews while a patrolman races off to track down the runaway bride and groom? Don’t miss seeing “Dearly Beloved” to find out.
