In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious! Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin’s other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.
Pick up your tickets at the public libraries in these communities: Aurora, Babbitt, Calumet, Carlton, Chisholm, Cloquet, Duluth, Gilbert, Hibbing, Moose Lake, Silver Bay, and Virginia. At the last minute, free tickets may still be available at the Cloquet Public Library. Patrons with tickets MUST call the theater at 218-878-0071 in advance of the event to reserve a seat.
The Arrowhead Library System sponsors this program by providing free tickets, with funding in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
