Tokens of Affection
BY TOPHER PAYNE
DIRECTED BY KATHRYN ADAMS WOOD
FEBRUARY 16, 17, 18, & 19 —2017
Tokens of Affection explores the empty nest syndrome, complications of long-term romance and general family dysfunction when a wife of 37 years announces she’s leaving her husband. Each partner seeks solace at the homes of their grown children, and hilarity ensues. A gem from the wonderfully witty mind of Atlanta’s own Topher Payne! The Garrett family is learning that although the big things in life get all the attention, it's the little things that matter most. This show is packed with clever dialogue, huge laughs and beautifully tender moments. Definitely one not to miss! (theatrereview.com)

Hank Williams - The Lonesome Tour
A ONE MAN SHOW
June 1 & 2 —2017
BECAUSE YOU ASKED!!!
In 2017, once again you will be able to hear the classic tunes of Hank Williams at the Red Door Theatre!
There is only one Hank Williams and only one actor who can bring him to life—JASON PETTY. Jason began portraying the legend, Hank Williams on country music's biggest stage in 1996, the world famous Ryman Auditorium, in the critically acclaimed musical biography, Lost Highway. After two years, he began touring the US, including the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, and Canada with the show. In 2002, the show went to New York and made its off Broadway debut where Jason earned off Broadway's highest acting award, The Obie, for his riveting portrayal of the musical genius and tortured soul, Hank Williams.
And now, audiences at the Red Door have the opportunity to see Petty’s bigger than life performance in his one-man show, Hank Williams—The Lonesome Tour! The Red Door Theatre is offering this incredible musical production first to our season subscribers who will be permitted to purchase the same number of tickets as they purchase season subscriptions. Orders must be in by January 4, 2017, to receive priority consideration. (This is just one more reason to order season tickets!) Any remaining tickets will go on sale as general admission to the public on January 5, 2017, on a first-come basis.
The Tourism Council of Bullock County and the Red Door Theatre are excited to offer this outstanding production of the very entertaining Jason Petty in HANK WILLIAMS—THE LONESOME TOUR.

JULY 27, 28, 29, & 30 —2017
The Dreamland Bus, a haunting memory play about the Bradleys of Columbia, S.C., is a charming, funny, deeply touching, and life-affirming story about family and homecomings based upon the playwright’s family and his Southern up-bringing. The title reflects the words of his father, a Southern doctor, when the children were being put to bed – “it’s time to get on the dreamland bus." (theatremania.com)

It's Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters—Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye—are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!
