It’s a lighthearted Christmas tale full of mistaken identities and zany foul-ups with a smattering of slapstick comedy. “Sorry, Wrong Chimney” presents live community theater and showcases a hilarious holiday tale with very memorable local talent. Enjoy a couple of hours of uncomplicated laughter and fun which all ages will love, at the Sulphur Springs Community Players’ original theatrical venue, Main Street Theater downtown. Plan to see at least one of the six stage performances…December 7-16…and “laugh your stockings off! Ho, Ho Ho!”
Co-directors Brenda Payne and Barbara Grubbs and the cast of seven are enthusiastic about staging the yuletide farce for the public. They say, “Bring the family and enjoy it together!” In the role of “Natalie”, Miss Sydnee Hawkins is a veteran of local theater, having begun at Main Street in Children’s Summer Workshop. Sydnee’s enjoyed a busy 2018, appearing in numerous musicals and dramatic roles and pursuing a degree in Performance Arts. Kiara Stowater, who plays “Sheila”, is a 15-year-old public school student who also seeks a future on the stage. She began at age 8 in Main Street’s Summer Workshop and most recently appeared in Lion King Jr. Tim McMurray, who plays “Kris Kreagle” is a newcomer to Sulphur Springs and to acting. He had decided to try something new in life, and his audition landed him the role of a misguided but softhearted Santa Claus. Other talent in the play are Ben Brady, Esperanza Deterding, John D’Avingnon and Cameron McGraw.
See “Sorry, Wrong Chimney” at Main Street Theater, 225 Main Street, on two Fridays, December 7 and 14 at 7pm, on Saturdays December 8 and 15 at 7pm, and in two Sunday matinees, December 9 and 16, at 2pm.
