Cherokee Theatre Company is presenting a sequel to “Faith County” in Canton next month.
“An Evening of Culture — Faith County 2: The Saga Continues” by Mark Landon Smith will take the audience back to revisit friends in Mineola County as the town is attempting to put on its community production of “Romeo and Juliet.” However, the show has not come about without its fair share of problems, hiccups and mayhem.
Most of the original cast and crew of Cherokee Theatre Company’s production of “Faith County” have come back for “Faith County 2,” and director Becca Hogue, one of the originals, couldn’t be happier.
“Sometimes theatre is true magic,” she said in a statement. “This show, specifically this amazing group of people, has been nothing short of fantastic and magical. If you were lucky, you saw this amazing cast on stage last April in ‘Faith County.’ When we found out there was a sequel, we just knew we had to do it. Not only are the ‘Faith County’ shows wonderfully fun theatre that provide a hilarious escape from the world, but this cast and crew in particular is the best all-around group I have ever had the privilege to work with. This sequel is far richer and more hilarious because of them.”
Audiences will be able to enjoy the show without seeing the first “Faith County.”
Performance will take place at 8 p.m. Feb. 3, 4, 10 and 11, as well as at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 5 and 12. Ticket prices at the door are $20. Advanced and online pricing is $18 for adults, $15 for seniors 60 and up, students, military and members, and $13 for groups of 10 or more.
