Strauss Theatre Center Presents Southern Hospitality 02/27/2015 to 02/28/2015 The Futrelle Sisters are in trouble again. This time, the problem is bigger than ever: Their beloved hometown, Fayro, Texas, is in danger of disapperaring, and it's up to the sisters to save it from extinction. Ever since the Super SmartMart and the rendering plan closed, folks have been leaving Faryo, in droves, but Honey Raye, with a major assist from her former nemesis, Geneva Musgrave, has come up with a possible solution. It seems a salsa manufacturing factory is looking to relocate, and a company representative is headed to Fayro on a scouting mission. Promises are made that are not to be believed in order to woo the rep to choose Faryo. But how the Futrelle sisters and the other citizens of Fayro, pull together and save their town is a testament to Southern strength and ingenuity-and a recipe for total hilarity.
