To make a perfect red velvet cake, the measurements and ingredients have to be just right. The same care and perfection go into putting on a live theatre show and the Milton Players have perfected that recipe with their latest production, “The Red Velvet Cake War”. In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the wildly eccentric Verdeen clan is determined to have a family reunion – and it couldn’t have come at a worse time! Not only are they dealing with their own personal issues, as well as the off-kilter residents of Sweetgum, Texas but Gaynelle Verdeen Bodeen is determined to win her jaw-dropping high stakes wager on who bakes the best red velvet cake – smack dab in the middle of Texas tornado season!
With a cast of twelve wildly talented actors, some new to the Milton Players stage, and supported by a masterful crew, it is one of the groups biggest undertakings. This show marks the end of their 2018/2019 Season and is the final show before their 40th Anniversary Celebration Season, starting this fall.
While the show revolved around the Verdeen family, the cast and crew have become somewhat of a family themselves. The amount of work and time put into rehearsing and producing a show means that those involved become so close, that those relationships bleed off the stage – you’ll feel like you’re watching a real family!
