‘Dearly Departed’

FCP’s latest comedy sure to delight audiences



FLINT TWP. — The Flint Community Players (FCP) announces its upcoming “hysterical, redneck comedy,” Dearly Departed by Jessie Jones and David Bottrell.

According to the press release, Dearly Departed prides itself on possibly having “more Southern drawl and dysfunction than Steel Magnolias, more twisted redneck humor than Greater Tuna and more family foppish foray than Escanaba in Da’ Moonlight.” Dearly Departed revolves around the Turpin family and the outcomes from when the head of the family dies.

The show runs March 10-12 and 18-20 at the Bower Theatre, located in the Cultural Center. All perform- ances are 8 p.m. with the Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Individual tickets go on sale to the general public, approximately eight days prior to the show opening. Prices are $15 with special senior and student pricing available. With each ticket sale, $1 will go to the Flint Cultural Center Restoration Fund.

Tickets are available at the door, by calling the Ticket Office at 810-237- 7333 from noon-6 p.m. Monday-Friday or visiting www.thewhiting.com.
