Performance Dates: Fall 2018
Venue: The Palace Theater- Vinton, IA
Director: Doug Martens
Synopsis: In this deliciously funny Southern-fried comedy, the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas — Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmie Wyvette — are up against the clock as they frantically attempt to produce the ultimate high school reunion before the old building is demolished. But they’ve got a bushel of obstacles to overcome before they can pull off this miracle! Their scramble to prepare the perfect event is interrupted by the exploits of their beloved Uncle Aubrey, and Aunt LaMerle.

Chaos is side-splittingly achieved! A gut-busting Jones Hope Wooten farce — and a stand-alone play in its own right — LAST ROUND-UP OF THE GUACAMOLE QUEENS is the third and final comedy in the Verdeen Cousins Texas Trilogy that begins with THE RED VELVET CAKE WAR and continues with REX’S EXES. You’ll laugh so hard you might even consider attending your next high school reunion!
