Ladysmith Little Theatre
proudly presents


Directed by Pat Zogar

It would be hard to imagine a goofier or funnier set of individuals than the members of a Southern family named the Turpins who are the central characters in the hilariously funny play "Dearly Departed," The fun begins when the head of the family, Bud Turpin, suddenly keels over and dies at the kitchen table while his wife, Raynelle, is reading a letter to him from his sister, Marguerite.  His death brings the family together, at least physically, a
nd the rest of the show is spent watching all the fun getting Bud into the grave.  The sanest character is the none-too-grieving widow, Raynelle. While everyone else wants to find some virtue in the deceased, Raynelle recognizes  Bud as the "mean and surly," man he was, which is what she wants
engraved on his tombstone.
The cast includes hilarious turns by Ladysmith Little Theatre favorites Inge Cathers, Vic & Josee Duffhues, Chuck Harman, Ken Hiebert and Marni Hastings.  Newcomers include Alicia Taylor, Michael Robinson, William Anderson and Marinus Vesseur who won over audiences last year with his award winning performance in “Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun”. The production is well handled under the direction of Pat Zogar.
Don't expect anything heavy or illuminating from "Dearly Departed" -- just plan on laughing a lot. You've gotta love the Turpin family, but heaven forbid you'd wake up and discover you were related.
