We’re just ordinary folks who enjoy what we do and being a part of something that brings a lot of pleasure to people and positive recognition to our community.”The two-act play features pre-show music by the Benton Brothers and Company and a full country supper served family style. The play is performed in the We Piddle Around Theater, which was originally Brundidge City Hall. The building was constructed by WPA workers in 1940 and that is where the theater got its name.“Workers with the Works Progress Administration were often accused of not doing much work, just piddling around,” Bowden said. “So, the WPA was dubbed ‘We Piddle Around’ and that seemed to be a fitting name for our theater. We just hope those who come leave thinking all of the piddling has been worthwhile.”This season of “Come Home” is directed by Wes Tomlin of Ozark. Tomlin is a veteran actor and director.center_img Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content Skip You Might Like Mitchells find fishy solution for tomato plants The story of the Mitchells’ giant tomato plant began with the simple purchase of what was thought to be just… read more Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemsonlast_img
