With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help remember the true meaning of Christmas.

    A Barter Audience Favorite By Ross Carter It’s l’amour, y’all! Country music meets opera in the most unlikely, unbelievable and undoubtedly the most popular play to ever come through Barter’s Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights. A struggling opera singer has a dream: to sing the lead in Carmen. Her agent thinks she’s found the answer! But she finds herself singing at a state fair with a country music band called the Car Men —agents clash, people panic, and the singers erupt at the worst of possible moments in one of the funniest musicals you will ever experience. Director's Notes FUNNY LITTLE PEOPLE If music be the food of love, play on! — Duke Orsino, Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare There’s a lot to love about this world premiere musical comedy: from the clever songs and writing, to the hilarious and brilliant conceit of bringing together the two seemingly disparate worlds of opera and country music, to the outright joy and silliness of watching people fall in and out of love. But I think my favorite thing about Madame Buttermilk is that, although set in the present day, it feels like it comes from another time. It is a musical that hearkens back to the Golden Age of musical theatre where shows like Oklahoma, On the Town, and Show Boat celebrated America during a time when America needed something to celebrate (in the midst of World War II). And at the heart of this gentle, fun musical comedy is a most optimistic message: that even though we may come from different worlds (opera lover or country music lover), we are more alike than we are different. We are not so easily and conveniently stereotyped, but in the end share a commonality—we&rsqu o;re all just a bunch of funny little people chasing our funny little dreams. Shakespeare often used to set his love stories in a forest, because there’s magic in a forest—anything can happen. The same can be said of a state fair, which is where we find ourselves tonight. And I hope that as you get on this ride and ask yourself, “What is this? Is it country? Is it opera?,” that you’ll eventually throw your hands up and say, “Who cares??!! It’s l’amour, y’all!” Cast & Credits Cast Carly Speranza: Hope Quinn Kit McCandless: Paris Bradstreet Connor Duke: Justin Tyler Lewis Ford Fairlane: Rick McVey Dody: Hannah Ingram Beemer Wilson: Zacchaeus Kimbrell Jan Swaggart: Katherine Lyle Art Flannagan: Andrew Hampton Livingston THE CAR MEN BAND BG “Booger” Bugati (Vocals, Car Horn): Nick Koesters Guitar: Travis Welch Bass: Glenn Diamond Fiddle: Nicole Misterly Conductor/ Keyboards: Dishon Smith Rehearsal Stage Manager: Sara Douglas COLLABORATORS Director: Nicholas Piper Music Director: Dishon Smith Set Designer: Derek Smith Costume Designer: Ashley Campos Lighting Designer: Camille Davis Sound Designer: Tony Angelini Wig & Makeup Designer: Whitney Kaibel Stage Manager: Cindi A.

    By Robert Harling A heart-warming portrait of friendship and love is the basis for this much-loved show. There isn’t a bond quite like the one between southern women in a beauty shop. In a small southern town, six women gather in Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes and beauty secrets, but they end up sharing so much more. Humor and heartbreak shine through this performance as the women experience some of the most significant days of their lives together. The true power of friendship shows through the women's underlying strength, which makes these characters genuinely touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in the good times and bad. Director's Notes THE TRUTH ABOUT STEEL This is the original, folks. This is the play that so many other plays try to emulate, but none can duplicate. This little-play-that-could was written by Robert Harling to help his nephew understand what had gone on in their family surrounding his birth. It’s based on real people and real circumstances from Harling’s real hometown, and it shows. Every moment feels true. When Harling submitted it to literary agents more than thirty years ago, he says it was largely dismissed at first. He remembers that the agents said, “It’s not commercial because it’s a bunch of women, and it takes place in a beauty parlor.” More than once, he nearly shelved it completely. But a funny thing happened as we, the audience, began to meet these characters onstage: we were disarmed. These women seemed so familiar and so true. We know these women, and we come back again and again to gather in their warmth and humor. In interviews, Robert Harling talks about what he noticed in the women that raised him. He noticed they held together when the men around them broke down. He noticed they were different when they were just with each other. He said, “When I was a kid, the mystique of the beauty parlor was that guys were never allowed. You didn’t know what went on in there, and they all came back different somehow.” He sensed that important changes were taking place in their private spaces together that helped them be strong. That’s the way it is with steel, I’m learning. Turning iron into steel involves extreme heat to alloy the iron with carbon or other elements. Once it combines with small amounts of other element(s), it becomes stronger and is prized for its ductility- its ability to bend without breaking. The quality that allows buildings and bridges to bend in the wind and stay upright. One of the underpinnings of modern life as we know it, is caused by this combining of elements. In other words, something that starts strong becomes so much stronger and more flexible when it opens its molecular structure to others. The fire these women walk through and their willingness to open their hearts and let others in is key to their strength and flexibility, too. It’s something that Robert Harling knew about the women in his family and their friends. It’s something that is true in so many of the strong women I know. Steel, as it turns out, is more about us together than us standing alone.
