The Farm Wife: The Song of my People

I am not so sure if this go ‘round I purchased chickens, or provided training facilities to some sort of Gallus gallus domesticus Choir.

Each morning, you can find me at daybreak tending to my flock. I give them feed. I clean out their bowls and offer fresh cool water. I open their hatch and they pour out like a waterfall of feathers. And as they stretch their legs, I get serenaded with the morning’s music.

Some of them just simply ‘la la la’, as if getting their vocal chords ready for the grand solo. Carlisle, our new Roo, belts out Amore in a hauntingly beautiful tenor as he croons to the ladies. And one chicken…bless her heart, she is as tone-deaf as they come, but still commences to walk around singing to herself. Da duh da…da da DA!

BackAlley Community Theater is proud to present the third show of our 2018-2019 season, In-laws, Outlaws, and Others that Should be Shot. This play is sure to keep you in stitches while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas. Two robbers are inadvertently thrown into the middle of a Christmas celebration. With each ring of the doorbell, they are in charge of more and more hostages until we begin to wonder who is holding who hostage. The laughs are nonstop and the characters are outrageous.

John Neilson returns to our stage as Thomas, a level-headed Dad who keeps everyone in check. John was in last seasons the Red Velvet Cake Wars, in addition to numerous other plays including The Foreigner and Southern Hospitality. John has also performed on the BackAlley stage playing his upright bass.
