Today I would like to explain why I will be doing the review of our production "Faith County." Due to the horrible flooding situation that has been occuring our reviewer from the seMissourian is so covered up with those and other things that have happened lately that she couldn't schedule a review night in. Understandable. So here I go with mine. This past weekend Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were three of the most enjoyable evenings and afternoon I have had in awhile. "Faith County" is set somewhere in the south where time has stood still. The characters are loveable, yet at the same time goofy and clueless. But that is what adds to the comedy that this shows brings across. The intoxicated Gladys, played by Bob Clubbs, (yes Bob is playing a woman) is so full of life and compliments and might I add booze that she makes you want to hang on to every word, that comes out of her Jack Daniels mouth. She is a favorite of mine. Then you have sweet, little, not so smart Faye, played by Leslie Hazelwood. She thinks that she is an artistic poet that performs them on the RCP stage as if she is at Madison Square Garden. You can't help but to fall in love with Faye and you are hoping that she will perform another one of her inspirational poems. Then there is Mildred who I have renamed Negative Nellie. Mildred, played by Cynthia McCleod-Luttrell, doesn't like much of what any of the other women do or say in Faith County. And trust me she tells it the way it is. From insults to pretty much telling each character at one time or another to "SHUT UP! The character Naomi is played by Emily Hornburg and you can't help but to fall in love with this gal. She is upbeat but yet doesn't take any bull off of the other women in Faith County. She is always looking on the bright side but will slip into a conversation with the other women and gossip right along with them. Then you have dear sweet Mrs. Barnes or as the girls call her Ruthann (the preacher's wife). Ruthann is played by Kathleen Ray and we couldn't have found a better person to play this character than Kathleen. She has the sweet angelic face and soft spoken voice that she uses to sooth many of the problems that occur while at the County Fair. Add in a lovely but very pregnant Violet, played by Abby Ritter and the females of this small town is complete. Abby gives a very believeable performance and you soon forget that she is a 15 year old in high school at Notre Dame. Mix these ladies all together and what do you get? One hysterical evening watching them interact with the three male characters in the show. Justin Aden pulls off the part of Luther as if he has done this a few times before and Wesley Toney truly has you believing that he is a 'Bubba.' From his voice to the mechanics uniform that he wears with pants way too short, you can't help but like his character. Tie in Delbert, played by Tom Fitzgerald and the cast is complete. If you did not get to attend this past weekends shows now is the time to remedy that. We have three more performances on May 12 the show only $15 or May 13 and 14 Prime Rib Dinner shows $30. Simply call Port Cape at 334-0954 and make those reservations today. You will have a hoot of a good time! Now I am starting to sound like I am from FAITH COUNTY! See you at the show.
