ALL are welcome to come and Audition for this FUN AND FUNNY MUSICAL, written by one of our Very Own Huntsvillian Playwrights: WAYNE MILLER

The Sequel to The Last Revival of the First Baptist Church of Butterbloom Flats, Alabama follows the displaced population to their new home in Mulesaddle, AL in the year 1943. The story finds the town preparing for a big community dance in their brand new Civic Center all the while dealing with two town visitors. The first, a city slicker named Ignatius Firth (a villain in disguise), speaks real pretty with a British accent and is town under the guise of writing a story. The second, the legendary Wampus Cat from southern folklore (six-legged panther-like animal), prowling Washbottom Slue, possessing a bad disposition and the potential to terrorize Mulesaddle's citizens. It is revealed that Ignatius is indeed not British and is in town to rob the bank with the assistance of Billy George Ackery, a local who believes he receives no respect. The would bank robbers are inspired by the adventures of the Judas Ackery, a criminal legend known as The Rook. In a twist, Billy is courting Ginny Hensley who happens to be the daughter of Rev. Moss Hensley who is the Mayor of Mulesaddle. The story continues through plans for the dance and the bank robbery. Due to a comedy of errors and interruptions, the bank robbery becomes a convoluted mess, and eventually a surprise mastermind is introduced, throwing another twist into the story. In the end, the bank robbery is foiled by the towns quiet hero, the crooks are arrested, and the true existence of the Wampus Cat left to the imagination of believers. Music, dancing, and lots southern charm and comedy add to the experience and maybe just possibly make the audience laugh at themselves a little.
