LampLight sets sail with 'Good'n Family Vacation'

staff report • Aug 3, 2011 at 4:04 AM

The Foggy Valley Gang is at it again as the Good’n family embarks on a wacky vacation cruise aboard the SonShip Cruise Line. Fall Branch’s LampLight Theatre will present the latest installment of its “The Funny Side” series this month with both dinner theatre and performance only shows. Show times for dinner theatre productions of “The Good’n Family Vacation” are 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Aug. 5 and 6. Tickets are $25 per person. Performance-only shows are at 3 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 7; 7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 12; 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 13; and 3 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 14. Doors will open one hour prior to show times with a suggested donation of $8 for adults and $5 for children. Inspired by Spoolie and Mama Good’n — the proprietors of the Good’n Family Funeral Home, Wedding Chapel and Taxidermy Service — the rest of the Good’n family and their friends board the ship with intentions of becoming famous stars as they provide entertainment for the cruise. Audiences will watch as the zany script of this slap-stick comedy unfolds in a montage of mishaps, misquotes and misunderstandings. Brother Clyde Humperdink, played by Billy Wayne Arrington, owner of LampLight Theatre and founder of Visions Productions, officiates the cruise production as members of the Foggy Valley Gang share their “talents” for the show. Among them is Clementine Hogg, that well-known singer from Hazard County, Ky., whose sultry voice brings a little “spice” to the act. Flo Rakeshaw lights up the stage with her famous “interpretive movement” as she delivers her own rendition of musical interpretation. Other members of the Foggy Valley Gang follow suit with absurdities and one-liners that will keep the audience in stitches. Ima, Ura and Virgil Good’n add that extra element of eccentricity, along with Wormy Scrumps, Clovis Bodine, and, of course, Otis Purdy, head of security. Appearances by cousins June and Johnny Sue Good’n complete the headliner list assuring a performance packed with fun, silliness and non-stop l a u g h t e r. Reservations for dinner shows must be made no later than three days prior to the performances. For more information or to make reservations, call the LampLight box office at (423) 348-7610 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, or visit www.lamplighttheatre.com
