The Pittsfield Players Present the Hilarious Comedy

Mama Won't Fly

The Pittsfield Players will stage the very funny, laugh a minute comedy Mama Won’t Fly at the Scenic Theatre, 6 Depot St., Pittsfield, NH on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 10, 11 and 12, and again on Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18. All shows are at 7:30 pm, except the Mother’s Day matinee, which is at 2 pm. Tickets are $15, and can be purchased by clicking on the buy tickets button, or you can reserve seats by calling 435-8852.

Here’s a great idea for a Mothers’ Day gift – lunch and then the Players’ show Mama Won’t Fly.

The story of Mama Won’t Fly involves an outrageously hilarious race against the clock that begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother's wedding. Savannah's problem: Mama won't fly. With only four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama's vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip, another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced. Hayley Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is convinced that traveling together to her wedding is the perfect way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent when the journey begins and comedic chaos ensues. Every conceivable—and inconceivable—mishap that can occur does, including the theft of their car and all their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an ancient Texas relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked eighteen-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl/minister.

As the misadventures multiply, the beleaguered trio rapidly develops the urge to ditch each other anywhere along the way. Eventually the race to get to the church on time takes its toll and the overwhelmed bride calls off the wedding. Rising above their age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen and Savannah work together to get the nuptials back on track. In a surprising and heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for their own relationship and welcome Hayley into their delightfully wacky family. This ferociously funny, family-friendly Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy will have you laughing your way across the country and all the way down the aisle!

The show is directed by Marty Williams and costumed by Cathy Williams, who is also appearing as Mama in the show. Vicki Watson takes on the role of Savannah, her daughter, and Melanie Perkins plays Hayley, the bride to be. Appearing in various other roles are Heather Bradley, Mike Bunie, Beth Champagne, John Chinn, Maye Hart, Lena Luongo, and Coy McCarty. Together this cast will keep you laughing through the whole show. Don’t miss this truly funny comedy!
