Encore Theatrical Company presents August: Osage County at the Judge William H. Inman Humanities Complex Theater located at Walters State Community College on Sept.12 - 21 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., with an additional Saturday matinee Sept. 20 at 2 p.m.
"August: Osage County – Tracy Lett’s dark tragicomedy of an unexpected family reunion caused by the disappearance of the Weston family patriarch is the most awarded show of our century," officials said.
"Featuring both Encore Theatrical favorites and those making their Encore debut, the show is sure to stun audiences while touching both their hearts and their funny bones."
Portraying the role of the vitriolic matriarch of the Weston family is Linda High – a veteran of the Washington D.C. professional stage. Joining her are three familiar faces – Kathy Jones-Terry, Susan Christophel and Paige Munroe-Mattocks as the daughters raised by their pill-popping mother and alcoholic father. Also caught in this web of dysfunction are Devon Ressler as Aunt Mattie Fae, Larry Burton as Uncle Charlie, Adrian Thomas as their disappointment of a son Little Charles, Rus Mattocks as Bill, Rick Drybread as Steve, Rebekah Frith as Jean and Taylor Ferrell as Johnna Monevata. Portraying the role of the missing Beverly Weston is Dan Gibson in his stage debut.
Director Kate Adams is thrilled to be bringing this piece of American drama to the Encore stage. “Our cast is doing a brilliant job of measuring up to the standard of theater that this show sets. The level of acting talent on this stage blows me away, night after night.”
Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for Senior Citizens and $10 for Students. The show contains both adult language and mature subject matter and is not suitable for children.
The show is made possible by the support of this season sponsors: the Tennessee Arts Commission, WCRK Radio, and Walters State Community College, and our show sponsor: Heartland Title Services.
