The Johnson High School Theatre Department is proud to present the hilarious comedy, Dearly Departed by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones. Performances will be held November 14–16 at 7 p.m. and November 17 at 2 p.m. in Johnson’s Black Box Theatre. Tickets are $6 (presale) and $8 (at the door).
Despite their efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin family’s other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion: Firstborn Ray-Bud works himself into a frenzy as the funeral bills mount; Junior is juggling financial ruin, a pack of out-of-control kids, and a wife who won’t speak to him; their spinster sister, Delightful, copes with death as she does with life, by devouring junk food; and all the neighbors add more than their two cents! During the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community who manage to somehow help one another in this hysterical Southern fried comedy!
