In “The Last Roundup of the Guacamole Queens,” the three Verdeen cousins, Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmie Wyvette, are racing against the clock to hold the perfect high school reunion before their old high school is demolished. While facing various heartbreaking, yet pretty hysterical personal problems, the cousins must throw the perfect reunion to impress the governor’s aide and snag the high profile job of planning the governor’s birthday party in order to keep their family business running. While the cousins need a perfect evening to occur, various other family members unexpectedly show up, bringing all forms of chaos with them and causing the most entertaining high school reunion to occur.

Adapted from Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic novel. Four of literature’s most famous sisters, nurturing Meg, rebellious Jo, sweet Beth and spoiled Amy, must endure the absence of their father while he is away ministering in the Civil War. Under their mother Marmee’s wise and tender care, the girls learn many lessons – including the real meaning of Christmas – as they experience both the painful and the beautiful that life offers. Full of memorable and varied music with richly drawn characters, “Little Women – A Merry Christmas” is a family-friendly timeless story that stays true to its historical era while bringing joy and authenticity to the holiday season. Some songs include “If I Had No Worries” by the four sisters, the “Skaters’ Waltz” by the chorus; “Stille Nacht” (“Silent Night”) by the Hummel children, as well as songs for the sisters’ operetta.

In the summer of 1981 many theater minded people of Lamesa joined forces in forming a theater group. Since the group had no funds with which to produce its first show, a script had to be written. In just a few months, a melodrama, Skulduggery on the Square, was ready for production thanks to Pat Newberry and Carole Hill. The script contained music, comedy and drama as well as oleos. Over forty people took the stage for the first run and another seventy worked on various crews from publicity, scrapbook, and programs to lights, sound, and house management. It was a miracle that so many people turned out to organize theater in Lamesa, but it happened, and it remains a lasting miracle that the community continues their support.
