Nine plays from Free State Theater Troupe starting April 12


Haleyville students Zoe Lawler, Matt Thompson, Cayden Postell, and Cadey Lawler prepare for the upcoming Spring performance of “Hilarity and Hoopla.” Students from six area schools have joined to form the Free State Theater Troupe and are sponsored by the Winston County Arts Council.

WINSTON COUNTY - The Free State Theater Troupe have been rehearsing for upcoming performances at Looney's Tavern Dual Destiny Theater on Hwy. 278 in Double Springs. Nine short comedy plays will be played out in front of the audience.
Performances are Friday, April 12, at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 14, at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 adults and $3 students and are available at Fine Yarns on Main in Double Springs and the Arley Public Library.
If the title of a play is "For the Love of Lucy," you'd think it might be a comedy and you'd be correct.
The Troupe is sponsored by the Winston County Arts Council. These students represent six schools from around the county and have come together to present two hours of comedy productions. Seven of these plays are "silly shorts," lasting only ten minutes. Word is that these mini-plays are hilarious and that the cast is really enjoying their rehearsals.
Beth Gilbreath, is the multi-talented director; teacher at Double Springs Middle and Lynn by day and able to keep 21 students on track with eight different plays by night. Tanner Dukes will be handling the sound and lighting. The amazing Martha Freeman will again produce props and costumes.
