Who knew Southern Fried could be so good for you?

Dewey Frye is dead and his wife Dorothy is left behind trying to pick up the pieces and hold her family together.

Her daughters are at each other's throats, Ozella Meeks from the SonShine committee at the Church is trying to take over the funeral, and Dewey's older brother is trying to take her house.

Funerals bring out the best, the worst and the funniest in people and the Frye family is no exception.

A big-hearted comedy about family, Southern-Style, stars a who's who of Playhouse favorites, including Carol Irvin, Weslie Webster, Lauren Marshall, Britt Hancock, Jason Ross, Patty Payne, Daniel Black, Bobby Taylor and is directed by Bryce McDonald.

If you loved "Dearly Departed," "The Foreigner," and "Steel Magnolias," this hilarious comedy is the show for you!

This musical is one of love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, home and family.

Jazz with Kellye Jolly & Will Boyd, April 19

Kellye Jolly, Will Boyd, and Jonathan Scales Fourchestra in concert April 19

In concert April 19
Kelle Jolly, vocalist, is joined by her husband, saxophonist Will Boyd, and the Jonathan Scales Fourchestra on Sunday, April 19 at 2:30 Central.

Jolly and Boyd will lead the group through original jazz music inspired by their travels around the world. Their journey is set to music accompanied by Knoxville pianist, Andrew LaPrise of the Danger Cube Jazz Band and Ropeadope Records' Jonathan Scales Fourchestra.

Boyd and Jolly are two well-known and respected musicians, and are also known as champions for the arts in East Tennessee, and beyond. They were recently recipients of the 2015 Arts Award at the recent Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration at the Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville.

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra explodes onto stages with an indescribable sound that is as much felt as it is heard: "a Thelonius Monk-like attitude with a Mozart creativity" (Pan on the Net).

Weaving together collective and individual influences without compromise, they are as much themselves as they are a unit—a crucial trait of landmark instrumental ensembles. At center stage, steel pannist and founder Jonathan Scales' compositional skill mixes with tasteful, avant-garde improvisations to form an unmistakably unique approach to an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical music.

Driftwood Magazine says: "Scales is to steel pans... what Béla Fleck is to the banjo—an über innovator."
