No-nonsense businesswoman Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt takes on an endeavour more complicated than it seems in Mama Won’t Fly, penned by the playwrights at Jones Hope Wooten. She agrees to truck her cantankerous mother across the country in time for her brother’s wedding—a task that would be a lot easier if the play were named something else. As it is, the two must make the journey in Mama’s rundown sedan, but this is only the start of their problems. Their in-law-to-be, Hayley Quinn, shows up in Alabama unannounced with the bizarre notion that a transnational road trip is the best way to bond with her near-relatives, an idea she comes to regret by the time it’s too late to turn back. Before they make it to California, the trio will have to face carjackers, slap-happy aunts, and Vegas ministers with an unseemly propensity for violence.
While wackiness unspools on stage, audiences enjoy a four-course meal with offerings such as honey-glazed carrots in brown butter, chicken pot pie, sausage-stuffed penne in vodka sauce, and the kitchen’s specialty Angus roast beef in a secret blend of herbs.
Class Act Dinner Theatre
A Whitby institution for more than a decade, Class Act Dinner Theatre serves a generous helping of humor in its productions of farcical comedies paired with scrumptious dining. Past seasons have seen contemporary works such as The Amorous Ambassador by Michael Parker, and classic comedies such as Neil Simon’s Last of the Red Hot Lovers. Owners Rocky and Claudie Varcoe are proud to have tickled the funnybones and assuaged the hunger pangs of more than half a million guests, and to have raised an excess of $1,000,000 for charitable causes.
