Performance: The Service at Rocky Bluff
September 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Amy Westmond and her husband Floyd, along with his brother and father who comprise a country music group, return to Amy’s home church. They reminisce and catch up on the gossip with Marie, the church’s housekeeper, and Betty, the choir director, who inspired Amy earlier but now seems to have somewhat of an attitude. The Westmonds are told that a search committee will be there for the evening hymn-sing to try to lure the church’s beloved pastor away. With the unseen organist who communicates through charades, they form a plan — a fake pastor and fake service! Lloyd will do his comic preacher routine and Floyd will be his minister of education. The two “ministers” have an abundance of bad jokes, and there’s plenty of comical choreography when they all sing. The fake service seems to be working, but when Betty brings out her puppet, Bobby Socks the Bible Book Worm, there are unexpected — and heartfelt — consequences.
