New Show Opening Tuesday at The Le Mars Community Theatre

(Le Mars) – Attracting big businesses to small towns. It’s a story we here in the mid-west can relate to, and you can see it unfold in comedic fashion next week at The Le Mars Community Theatre’s Postal Playhouse. “Southern Hospitality,” A Jones Hope Wooten Comedy centers around 4 sisters living a small Texas town. Long time Le Mars resident, and LCT veteran, Melanie Sailer, plays one of the sisters. She says that her and her fellow stage sisters attempt to attract a large salsa company to move in to town, which gets them in up to their necks by organizing a festival in a matter of days.

Joining the cast as the other 3 Futrelle sisters are: Donna Muilenburg, Renae Buss and Kim Ross. Other players joining in on the fun are: Jennifer Scholten, Joe Ouradnik, Bob Hill, Alison Hanson, Liam Parks and Audrey Scholten, who is playing the “meanest woman in 12 counties,” Aunt Iney.

There are 3 newbies that are a part of this show as well: Nicole Hahn, Mitchell Zenk And Nathan Irwin.

Another young man is joining the production, and Sailer knows him quite well!

“Southern Hospitality” is under the direction of Margaret Britton and opens Tuesday, May 9th.  The show will run Tuesday to Saturday with evening performances at 7:30 and end with a Sunday matinee at 2pm.  There are some seats left for the show, but they are going fast. There is seating available for the matinee which Melanie Sailer mentioned could make a great Mother’s Day gift!
