Red, White, and Tuna E-mail
Upcoming Productions

The Abbey Players Theatre is excited to announce its upcoming production of the third installment in the Tuna trilogy- Red, White, and Tuna! 

This production, which will be directed by seasoned Abbey director Dianna Ducote, will take the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Texas' third smallest town. 

Along with Tuna's perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.  

Red, White, and Tuna is slated to coincide with the 4th of July. Be sure to check back for audition information and further information about this exciting production!

Past Productions

The Abbey Players Theatre is pleased to announce the cast for the upcoming Fall production of Things My Mother Taught Me by Katherine DeSavino. 

The cast consists of three newcomers to the Abbey Players stage:  Ryan Broussard will play  Gabe with Leigh Lupton and Lisa Harris as his parents, Wyatt and Lydia.  Gale Luquette and Rebecca Songne LeBlanc will play the roles of Carter and Karen, Olivia’s parents;  Lindsay LeBlanc will play Olivia.   And Linda LeBlanc will play the role of the quirky building superintendant, Max.

 

This comedy introduces us to Olivia and Gabe who are moving into their first apartment together. They’ve packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway across the country to start a new life together in Chicago. Their moving day doesn't go exactly as planned though and things become slightly more complicated when all of their parents show up to help! This brand new comedy takes a generational look at relationships and explores how sometimes parents unintentionally pass their best lessons on to their children.  This funny and touching show will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again.

The production opens on November 1, 2013 and will run weekends through Nov 23rd   with matinees on Nov 10th  and 17th at the Abbey Players Theatre. Evening performances will be at 7:30 pm and the matinees will be at 2pm. The play is directed by Shana Ledet Qualls who has directed several Abbey Players productions in the past, including A Christmas Carol, The Gingerbread Lady and Jekyll & Hyde. 

Tickets for the productions will go on sale October 10th and can be purchased either through our Web site or by calling the Abbey Players Theatre at 337-893-2442.

"Treasure Island"

During the summer of 2012, the Children's Guild of the Abbey Players put on a chair sell-out version of  "Treasure Island," adapted by Rex Stephenson based on the beloved book by Robert Stevenson,

The spine-tingling adventure about trechery, treasure, and a young man's rite of passage had a cast composed of area children ages 11-17. The enthralling classic tale of Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver, and swashbuckling pirates excited both the young and the young at heart. The show ran from July 27 to August 11.
