Discover Fauquier December 2017
34
Fauquier Community Theatre (FCT) is excited to present the comical,
fun-loving, family-friendly Christmas play, "FrUiTcAkEs," written by Julian
Wiles, directed by Lucia Hanover, and produced by Amanda Gibson.
Welcome to McCord's Ferry, stereotypical Small Town, USA, that is,
indeed, rather like a fruitcake: mostly sweet with plenty of nuts. Here,
we find Mack Morgan (played by Gregory Leggott) a central town figure
offering a helping hand, listening ear, and wise counsel to all who come
through his whirligig shop. One December night, a runaway named
Jamie (played by Thomas Albrigo) hides out in Mack's barn, but not
before stealing a fruitcake, throwing two bickering spinster sisters, Miss
Sarah (played by Betsy Hansen) and Miss Alice (played by Sherry Bendt)
into an uproar. Beebo Dantzler (played by Bobb Jordan), the town's
only police officer, is on the case when he isn't preparing for his "Grand
Illumination" where he decks out his house for Christmas. Add to the mix
a Harvard graduate who fishes with poetry for bait, a six-time married
woman with a big heart, a frantic Christmas pageant director, and some
energetic kids, and you have the recipe for a heart-warming, funny tale
that brings you back to the true spirit of the Christmas season.
Lucia Hanover comes to FCT having previously directed shows in New
York City. "FrUiTcAkEs is really two-fold," she says. There is the underlying
story about redemption and the messages of kindness and honesty at
all costs. Then there is the message of being able to forgive ourselves
and others and how freeing it is." Under Hanover's direction, the cast of
"FrUiTcAkEs" gives us a picture of friends and neighbors, each portraying
their character with charm, wit, and affection. The show runs December
1­3, 8­10, and 15­17. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. and
Sundays at 2:00 p.m. at Vint Hill Theatre (4225 Aiken Drive, Warrenton).
