CAST preps new comedy
CLEARFIELD - The Clearfield Arts Studio Theatre will present the comedy "The Sugar Bean Sisters" at 7 p.m. March
13-15 and March 20-22.
The Nettle sisters, Willie Mae and Fay Clementine, return to their ramshackle dwelling in the swamps of Sugar Bean, Fla., after a disastrous daytrip to nearby Disney World, each with big plans for their separate futures. Willie Mae, a bald headed Mormon woman who lost her precious Eva Gabor wig on Space Mountain, is planning to go to Salt Lake City and find a good Mormon husband. Faye is making sure her expected celestial visitors will feel welcome by putting out sandwiches in their sugar cane field. Her plans include hopping on the alien spacecraft, which she is certain will be landing in that very sugar bean field at any moment.
Tickets are $8 and can be reserved by calling the CAST office at 765-4474. CAST is located at 112 E. Locust St.
