An outrageously hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother’s wedding. Savannah’s problem: Mama won’t fly. With only four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama’s vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip, another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced. Hayley Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is convinced that travelling together to her wedding si the perfect way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent when the journey begins and comedic chaos ensues. Every conceivable — and inconceivable — mishap that can occur does, including the theft of their car and all their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an ancient Texas relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked eighteen-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl/minister. As the misadventures multiply, the beleaguered trio rapidly develops the urge to ditch each other anywhere along the way. Eventually the race to get to the church on time takes its toll and the overwhelmed bride calls off the wedding. Rising above their age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen and Savannah work together to get the nuptials back on track. In a surprising and heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for their own relationship and welcome Hayley into their delightfully wacky family. This ferociously funny, family-friendly Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy will have you laughing your way across the country and all the way down the aisle! Some proceeds to be donated to Cures For Colors. This show is provided by Encore Entertainment of Goldsboro.

Eastern North Carolina’s Modern Day Pirates

Eastern North Carolina’s Modern Day Pirates


Monday, March 27, 2017 | 7:00 p.m. | Walnut 101

During the period 1978-1988 coastal smuggling was the major criminal activity in Eastern North Carolina, and it is in this period that Doug McCullough’s Sea of Greed is set. It began at Cape Lookout, North Carolina on the Fourth of July weekend in 1982 when the Coast Guard’s routine stop of a Gulf Coast shrimp trawler set into motion a fascinating chain of events. What began in our own backyard, ended with the U.S. invasion of Panama, the overthrow of Manuel Noriega, and the biggest drug bust in America’s history. Judge Douglas McCullough was the US attorney who unraveled the Cayman Island Cartel and subsequently wrote Sea of Greed to reveal the facts of the case. Judge McCullough serves on the NC Court of Appeals and earlier practiced law in New Bern after serving as an Assistant United States Attorney in the eastern district of North Carolina. He graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 1967, the University of South Carolina Law School in 1970, and served as a Colonel in the Marine Corps Reserves. His career also included serving as counsel to the Senate Ethics Committee before returning to North Carolina.
