The Suwannee Valley Players announce the upcoming opening of the Summer Youth Production "Hammin' It Up", an evening of comedy entertainment featuring the youth of the Tri-County Area. "Hammin' It Up" is a full evening of one act plays. The first, "Twelve Angry Pigs" written by Wade Bradford is a spoof of the classic "Twelve Angry Men".

Twelve pigs are gathered as the jury for the Big Bad Wolf who is on trial for destruction of property for blowing down the little pigs' houses; but is he guilty? Only the evidence can tell the truth.

The second play is a true audience participation melodrama set in the old west when Billy the Kid was alive and well. Did you know that Billy the Kid was really a woman? Well if you had never heard that story, be sure to be in attendance as the story unfolds as to the true identity of "The Kid". Stay tuned for "Outlaws of Candy Kitchen", boo the villain, cheer the battles, and applaud the heroics of our Texas Ranger under cover and the heroine of the story. "The Outlaws of Candy Kitchen" by D. M. Bocaz-Larson is produced by special arrangement with Freedrama.net

Complete your evening at the theater with tales from Mark Twain acted out by the cast of "Hammin It Up". Mark Twain was the ultimate story teller and who better to share his tales than the folks of Missouri sittin' on the porch of the Gen'rl Store. "Twain's Tales" by David Taylor London is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service Inc., Englewood, Colorado. Sit back and watch the young players act out excerpts of such classics as "Tom Sawyer", "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", "The Belated Russian Passport" and others.

Make your plans to attend one of the performances of these fine young actors and actresses. The show opens July 23 at 8 p.m. with repeat performances on July 24, at 8 p.m. and a Sunday matinee the 25th at 2:30; the following weekend, July 30 and 31 at 8 p.m. and Aug. 1 at 2:30.  All performances will be at The Chief Theater, 25 Park Ave., Chiefland.
