Editor's note: Stephen Redmon-Byrum's role in “High School Musical” was misstated in a previous version.
BOONE — It’s not quite possible to fit “Doublewide, Texas” into a box.
The play revolves around a quirky group of friends and family who consider seceding from Texas when a neighboring town threatens to annex their trailer park, all while getting into some antics along the way.
Beanstalk Community Theatre will put on comedy “Doublewide, Texas” at Harvest House in Boone at 7 p.m. on March 28 and 29, and 2 p.m. on March 30.
Although Beanstalk has put on comedies by Jones, Hope and Wooten Southern Comedy before, director Stephen Redmon-Byrum said that “Doublewide, Texas” is “far left” compared to their past shows.
Redmon-Byrum said that the show proved to be a challenge for his directing skills. He previously served as music director in Beanstalk’s production of “High School Musical,” and said that finding the proper comedic timing excited him during this process.
“This type of comedy is a farce,” Redmon-Byrum said. “It’s big; it’s ridiculous. With a show like this, you can’t go too big.”
Megan Ellis, president of Beanstalk Community Theatre board of directors, said that the show is a true representation of Beanstalk as a community theater in which everyone can be involved.
Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and $10 for students in advance, and $16 at the door for all. Purchase tickets at beanstalknc.com/tickets. Concessions will be available.
