Join Different Roads Home and Theatre Charlotte in this first-ever collaboration between the two organizations this October; as they bring to life what has been called a black comedy about white trash! The story of Bible-thumping Baptists, beer-swilling bar trash and everyone in between in a small Texas town, contrasted with the appearance-driven world of Hollywood and the hysterical comedy and tender poignancy that come from learning to be yourself and love the family you have instead of the family you want.
The original stage play premiered in Los Angeles on May 11, 1996, and ultimately won 14 Drama-Logue Awards. The film became a cult classic with LGBT fans, particularly in the South. The movie tells the story of a Texas family coming together in the aftermath of the matriarch's death.
Film star Ann Walker reprises the role of LaVonda DuPree, which she originated in the stage play, the movie, and the television series. Ann brings her colorful take on this cult classic to Charlotte audiences with some of the funniest, and most irreverent talent Charlotte has to offer for this comedy. Not recommended for children under 18. In homage to one of the most famous scenes in the movie, all seats are $32.09! Get yours today!!!!!

For seven years this event has raised money to help fund the Jeanne White Food Pantry to serve those with chronic illness in the Charlotte area. This event is sure to be the best yet. Again, at the famous McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square, the stage and night will be filled with stars! Jason and deMarco are living proof that art imitates life, and that music can also be inspired by the best that life has to offer on its many levels, sometimes mystical and at times, even euphoric. Their passionate and hopeful lyrics exemplify a spirit that is reflected in both their lives and music, attracting audiences everywhere and creating instant fans wherever they go. They will headline this incredible evening of praise and celebration. Also appearing is Teresa Giudice (Bravo TV star and Real Housewife of NJ). Teresa Giudice is an American reality television cast member, known for starring in The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Besides appearing on the show, Giudice has written three New York Times bestseller cookbooks and was featured on Donald Trump's The Celebrity Apprentice. Following her unfortunate prison stay in 2015, Teresa will focus her talk on inspiring others to find faith thru struggles and share her experience. And finally, our Humanitarian of the Year award goes to a legend in country music for a lifetime body of work with various charities. Louise Mandrell will grace the stage for a few musical numbers and a conversation about her fame and how she feels faith, family and charity are all part of her plan. Louise Mandrell is living proof that when you combine God-given talent with hard work, you get an entertainer who exemplifies the word “multi-talented.” In an industry where success in just one area typically defies the odds, Louise has managed to stake her claim on a wide swath of show-biz territory. Throughout a career that has spanned nearly four decades, she has made her mark in the entertainment world by pouring her heart and energy into each and every endeavor, whether she’s performing live onstage, recording in the studio, working in front of the cameras, writing or giving her time back to her community.
The VIP Reception begins at 5:30 pm immediately before the show and will include heavy appetizers, One (1) bar ticket per seat (Cash bar after that), & VIP swag bag, along with a profession photo opportunity with the artist.
