Auburn Area Community Theatre presents ‘The Last Round-Up of the Guacamole Queens’


Special to the
Opelika Observer

The Auburn Area Community Theatre (AACT) is excited to present The Last Round-Up of the Guacamole Queens. Written by “America’s Playwrights” Jones, Hope, & Wooten, one of whom wrote for classic television series “The Golden Girls,” this deliciously Southern-fried comedy is sure to leave you in stitches.
The Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas, are up against the clock as they frantically attempt to produce the ultimate high school reunion before the old building is demolished.
Their scramble to prepare the perfect event, impress the governor and keep their business afloat is interrupted by the exploits of their beloved Uncle Aubrey, who is in danger of getting throttled by the two octogenarian sisters he is simultaneously wooing, and by threats from their self-righteous Aunt LaMerle, who is determined to be crowned the final and forever Guacamole Queen. That’s before Peaches makes a date with a former classmate whose malevolent hand puppet has a score to settle.
This gut-busting farce will make you laugh so hard, one might consider going to their own class reunion!
Performances will be at Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center on 222 E. Drake Ave. in Auburn on May 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18 at 7 p.m., with matinees May 12 and 19 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. The first matinee performance, May 12, is “Pay What You Can”- the ticket price is a donation in any amount.
