Have you ever wondered what goes on in the tight-knit world of community theater? Especially in a small, Southern town already overflowing with plenty of eccentric characters?
Are the actors really Hollywood hopefuls looking for their "big break" or just hometown prima donnas, wanting to become "slightly famous" as local celebs? Rosalie (Rosy) Potter is the overly-dynamic founder and director of "The Pitchkettle Players" located in the small town of Marbury, nestled in the Appalachian mountains between North Carolina and Tennessee.
"I was about to fail, and in front of the whole town. Of course, my mother-in-law claimed I failed all the time. In her opinion, I had been one big flop from the start. Never mind that her son and I were still in love and happily married after nearly twenty years. Or that we had given her a perfect granddaughter.
She grumbled about my love of the theater, of acting, and my work for our community theater. When I started our town’s "little theater" group, The Pitchkettle Players, she predicted a quick and unpleasant end to it. That was ten years ago.
When Ralph and I headed up the effort to buy and renovate the old train depot for the theater and community center, she recited a list of every business that had ever failed in Marbury. This time she just might be right.
The failure I was about to have would be big-time. It would be the end of the dream for lots of people, not just me. Our latest theater production, rehearsals for which were about to start, with the opening night just six weeks away, would either make or break the Marbury Community Theater, the Pitchkettle Players, and yours truly. My mother-in-law would finally win."
