“Second Samuel” is the name of a post World War II town in Georgia. This very small town and its citizenry is the subject of the play by the same name penned by Pamela Parker and directed by Chris Serface.
Serface, the Managing Artistic Director of Tacoma Little Theatre, lends his talents to the Spanaway Lake High School drama department for the students to present this charming, sometime baffling tale of the laid back folk of this charming town where everybody knows everybody – or do they?
When the township arranges for the last rites for Miss Gertrude, the community’s oldest resident, they find a mystery has been living in their midst which overwhelms and shocks some locals, but brings laughter to the audience.
Playing in this production are Spanaway Lakes young thespians featuring Ian Cole (B Flat), Javier Nehonsky (Frisky), Jonathan McDonald (US), Nick Panton (Mansel), Nik Pate (Mr. Mozel), Mackenzie Fate (Omaha), Reagan Howell (Jimmy Deeanne), Madison Cadwell (Marcela), Katie Cutlip (Ruby), Corbin Vander Velden (Doc) and Caje Johnson (June).
