The Futrelle Sister’s Frankie, Twink, Honey Raye and Rhonda Lynn are in trouble again. This time the problem is bigger than ever. Their beloved hometown, Fayro, Texas is in danger of disappearing, and its up to the sisters to save it from extinction. The sisters hastily throw together a huge festival to impress a visiting V.I.P. But a loathsome relative, an old beauty pageant rivalry, a Civil War battle reenactment and the unexpected demise of a guest are only a few of the obstacles the women face in pulling off “Fayro Days”. 

For more information please contact Director Kristen Cash 952-221-5651, or call the arts center at 952-985-4640.

We are looking for a cast of 7 women and 5 men including:

GENEVA MUSGRAVE (50’s +) - The crusty owner of the town flower shop and the local town gossip.

HONEY RAYE FUTRELLE (50ish) - The oldest Futrelle sister, a sexy, vivacious go-getter, is “enjoying” the wonderful world of menopause.

GINA JO (G.J.) DUBBERLY (20’s) - Frankie and Dub’s daughter, guileless and enthusiastic, she is your typical Daisy Duke sort of girl. She loves the life she currently lives and loves her family more than life itself.

RHONDA LYNN LAMPLEY (50's) - She is the flashy manager of The Dairy Dog. There is a secret about her and likes to do whatever it takes to try to fit in.

TWINK FUTRELLE (40’s) - The middle Futrelle sister is the “black sheep.” She is loud and so is her style.  She is the toughest of the sisters.

JUSTIN WAVERLY (20’s) - The interim pastor at the Tabernacle of the Lamb, he is very sweet and innocent, doesn’t like confrontation and is in love with Gina Jo.

JOHN CURTIS BUNTNER (35 to 55) - The deputy sheriff, he loves the ladies just as much as he loves his donuts and coffee.

DUB DUBBERLY (40’s) - Frankie’s husband, he is your typical trailer park husband. Life revolves around NASCAR, hunting and drinking beer. He loves his wife more than he may show.

FRANKIE FUTRELLE DUBBERLY (40’s) - The youngest Futrelle sister, she’s pregnant with her 2nd set of twins. She is the most normal of the sisters, but still out there. She is a wonderful mother and full of wit.

RAYNERD CHISUM (open age) - He is a part-time employee at The Dairy Dog. Life in his world is very simple. He is slow in his thoughts and speech but he always speaks from the heart.

INEY DUBBERLY (60’s-70’s) – Dub’s elderly aunt, she is nasty and disagreeable. 

D. DAYVA DAVIDSON (30’s – 40’s) She is a visitor in Fayro, she is sophisticated and businesslike.

BUCK STRICKLAND (40’s – 50’s) He is also a visitor in Fayro, and is a businessman contemplating relocation to Fayro.
