Encore’s ‘The Kitchen Witches’ set to take stage

Staff Reports • Updated Sep 1, 2017 at 12:00 PM

Encore Theatre Co. will feature its next show – a laugh-out-loud comedy – “The Kitchen Witches” by Carolyn Smith and directed by James Bealor on Sept. 8-9 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 10 at 2:30 p.m. at the Mt. Juliet theatre. 

The house will open 30 minutes before show times. 

The story is about Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle, two “mature” cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a television show called the Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food. Dolly’s long-suffering producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly’s dressing room is 1 inch closer to the set than Isobel’s, it’s a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors 60 and older and $10 for children 12 and younger. To buy tickets, visit encore-theatre-company.org, ticketsnashville.com or call 615-598-8950

Encore Theatre Co. is at 6978 Lebanon Road, just west of Highway 109 in Mt. Juliet.

Now in its 11th year, Encore Theatre Co. is a nonprofit community theater that serves Wilson County and surrounding areas.
