Tater Patch Players
Tater Patch Players has almost finished its run of performances for The Fantasticks. There are only two more chances to see this terrific show, on August 16 and 17 at 7:30 PM.
They urge you to go online through their website at www.taterpatchplayers.org and get your tickets, as seats are filling up.
The show has been very well received. One audience member proclaimed it "delightful" while another said the cast was "enchanting". One patron who had seen the show several times in New York said that he found the Tater Patch staging "innovative and refreshing".
Patrons from age 6 to 86 have enjoyed these performances. The Players recommend you give it a try.
If plays are not your "cup of tea," the theater will next play host to the wonderful song styling of Mr. Gabe Russo. Gabe visited last year with his great tribute show featuring the songs and style of Frank Sinatra. This year, Gabe says he's added new material, still from the Blue-Eyed One, and may have a few surprise guests.
In response to demand from last year's patrons, the theater is taking out some regular seating and is offering some tables-for-two and for-four, in addition to theater seating.
The Tater Patch Players are offering you a chance at a mid-century "lounge" experience, complete with beverage and dessert service by a bevy of personable waiters and waitresses. Come to their cabaret! The shows will be September 13 and 14 at 7:30 and September 15 at 2 PM.
If you're more of a wild-and-crazy event type, wait till October 26, put on your wildest outfits and come to the theater for an unforgettable movie night. Some of you remember the late-night "happenings" at the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and others never got the chance. For all of you, the chance is here, in Jasper, courtesy of the Tater Patch Players Movie Night! It's just a jump to the left.... If you've never seen this movie in a crowded theater, you've never really seen it.
If you think the variety offered at your community theater is the type of thing you might enjoy, the Taters invite you to come visit them any Monday, from 10 until noon and meet our many and varied volunteers. They have everything from retired teachers to travel agents, to engineers to musicians. And they all get along doing what they can to help our community theater grow. Come out to the Play House and play with them.
