Welcome to the Double Cupp Diner on Highway 57,
somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina.
It’s a great place to rest a spell, and enjoy a slice of pie and
a piping hot cuppa joe or a bottle of beer. The fellas from
the gas station next door will be stoppin’ in for a visit with the
lovely Cupp sisters, to play their high octane blend of
country-western, bluegrass, and rock & roll packed with
entertaining toe-tappers about life, love, and good times
along the American roadside.
The Elephant Man
Drama Lions Night Out – Tuesday, October 28th 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 30-Nov. 16, 2014
By Bernard Pomerance
Winner! Tony Award for Best Play. This moving and
beautiful powerhouse drama is based on the life of John
Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the
nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, a victim
of rare skin and bone diseases, has become the star freak
attraction in traveling side shows. Found abandoned and
helpless, he is admitted to London’s prestigious Whitechapel
hospital. Under the care of celebrated physician Frederick
Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly
evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite
of the aristocracy and literati, only to be denied his ultimate
dream: to become a man like any other.
One Slight Hitch
Jan. 8-25, 2015 Lions Night Out – Tuesday, January 6th 7:30 p.m.
By Lewis Black
Yes, THAT Lewis Black – The Daily Show guy. And he’s written a play. So hang on to your seats! Doc and Delia Coleman are throwing eldest daughter Courtney the lavish wedding they never had. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce, the doorbell rings, … and one slight hitch wreaks glorious havoc on all of their plans. So much for perfect. (Contains some mild adult language.)
Feb. 26-Mar. 15, 2015 Lions Night Out – Tuesday, February 24th 7:30 p.m.
By Jacob York
In this story where fan-dom and family intersect, we meet Leigh Elder, a female sportswriter for a major metro Atlanta newspaper. She’s a homer: love and loyalty to the Braves, the Hawks, and the Falcons. When a dream job falls into her lap and promises to take her to the big-time of L.A., she is thrilled. The only thing that stands in the way is her biggest fan: her father. Can a homer ever really leave home? Loyalty and love can be tough in the big leagues!
My Fair Lady
April 9-26, 2015 Lions Night Out – Tuesday, April 7th 7:30 p.m.
By Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe
“Wouldn’t it Be Loverly?,” “The Rain in Spain,” “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Get Me to the Church on Time,” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face” are all part of this musical masterpiece that will complete GET’s 22nd season. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, you will fall in love all over again with Eliza Doolittle, a Covent Garden flower peddler who agrees to take speech lessons from phonetician Henry Higgins in order to fulfill her dream of working in a flower shop. Along the way, Eliza succeeds so well that she outgrows her lowly social status, and manages to become an indispensable part of Higgins’ life.
