Acting out for the Fayette County Special Olympics

On November 3, kick your shoes off and enjoy an evening with The Peachtree City Hillbillies while helping raise money for Fayette County Special Olympics.

The murder mystery dinner theatre will feature down-home barbecue from Smokey Bones, and plenty of laughs and intrigue. See if you can figure out who killed Miss Jane Fondle. Was it Uncle Ted, Cornrow, or Smelly May?

The play was written by Joey Waldrop and Tammy Waldrop and is directed by Joey Waldrop.

The director recently graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor of arts in theatre and film studies. His sister Shannon participates in Fayette County Special Olympics and he wanted to use his talents to help raise money for her and the other athletes.

The all-volunteer cast includes Kathy Padia, who is also a veteran Special Olympics volunteer, as Smelly May; Paige Steadman as Granny; Cynthia Fox as the foxy criminal justice student Brenda Blevins; Josh Radcliffe as Uncle Ted; Andrew Detterbeck as Squatting Dog; and Joey Waldrop as Cornrow.

Tickets are $40 each or $75 for a pair. The evening will include hors d’oeuvres, dinner and dessert, as well as entertainment. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Debbie Parrish at 770-716-4320 or Joey Waldrop at 770-310-0665.
