The Foggy Valley Gang is back again to bring their crazy antics to LampLight Theatre on Broad Street in Kingsport, TN. This much-loved gang of characters are constantly getting themselves in a quandary. This adventure is no different with their new production "Foggy Valley Idol". Performed in “over-the-top” slapstick and physical comedy, the show is sure to blast the winter blues away.
Due to a temporary shut-down of the community center, the Foggy Valley Idol talent show has been moved to the B.A. Goodin Funeral Parlor and will be broadcasted live on WFVG radio station. The talent contest brings some special “out-of-town” visitors including ‘larger-than-life” Cleopha Blair and the Boondocks Boys. “Wanna-be” actress, Willa Lovewright, also flies in to vie for Idol title. Both women cause lots of farcical tension with Goodin family matriarch, Mama Goodin. In the idiotic chaos of prepping for the show, Mama Goodin starts feeling left out and unwanted. Led by a street urchin, Mama runs away and finds herself among the homeless with no intentions to return. In their frantic search for Mama, the Goodin family still decides to do the live broadcast in hopes of drawing Mama back home.
“The show must go on…” and so it does. The Foggy Valley celebrities bring their own crazy knacks to the competition. Clementine Hogg’s sultry voice is sure to charm the audience and woo the attention of Rev. Clyde. Florence Rakestraw strews her self-taught song interpretation talents all over the stage. Elvis impersonator, Clovis Bodine, will swoon all the ladies with his uncanny magnetism. All are in hopes that Mama is listening out there somewhere. A moral is to be learned in the sub-plot of Clara Simms, a young misplaced soul. This amusing uproarious production has an ethical twist that dispels misunderstandings and marshals forgiveness.
