There's trouble in Tatertown!
The Idaho community is desperate for rain lest their potato
crops dry up in the fields. Especially hard hit are Irish Tater, his wife Etta
Tater and the Tater tots: Sweetpea, Lyonnaise and Chip. Unless a solution is found, they will
be forced to move, along with most of the other farmers in TaterfieldCounty. Their plight is the result of a dastardly scheme hatched by Noah
Count, the scoundrel lawyer who deliberately left the water rights out of their
deeds. The townsfolk send our hero, Spud Farmer, to bargain for water with the
B.Z. Beaver Corporation which dammed the Snake River. To Spud's surprise, Sue Duse
is not only head of the business, but Noah's partner in crime. Spud's ladylove,
Candide Yam and the other citizens spy on the
negotiations--all in wacky disguises. Hilarity abounds as the Tater tots are
kidnapped for ransom and Spud fights Noah to stop the villain from blowing up
the dam! This "dynamite" melodrama sprouts other characters including
Ida Hoe, Tilda Fields, CherKropper, Marshal Art and Pastor Salt.Directed by Susanne Burns.
Seventeen Young Company actors, ages 9 to 15,
present this spud-filled melodrama on May 10th ( and ) 2008 on the MainStage.
$5 general admission tickets available May 1st from TWS Ticket Office. Call
