“The Red Velvet Cake War” at Lyric Arts

Friday, May 30, 2014 - 7:30pm to Saturday, June 14, 2014 - 7:30pm

In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, written by Hope, Jones, and Wooten—also known for The Dixie Swim Club and Hallelujah Girls—the three Verdeen cousins could not have picked a worse time to take over planning the family reunion, but they can’t back out now.

Unfortunately, they face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. As this fast-paced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this much fun!

Lyric Arts will be holding a bake sale in conjunction with this show, as well as raffling off a designer cake from local café Truffles and Tortes each night of opening weekend. In addition to Truffles and Tortes’ red velvet cupcakes available at the concession counter, Lyric Arts is looking for treat submissions from local baking enthusiasts for audience members to enjoy during the show and take home afterwards. Contact Sharon Broscha at 763-233-0802 to sign up.

The Red Velvet Cake War opens May 30th and runs through June 14th, 2014. Tickets for the production are available by calling the box office at 763-422-1838 or by visiting the Lyric Arts website at www.lyricarts.org. For questions about the bake sale or raffle, call 763-233-0802.
