Pictured is the cast of the upcoming Great Bend Community Theatre production “Guess Who’s Coming to Supper.” They are: Front row, left to right, Erin Ferguson, Karen Gore, Talitha Crow and Jann Curtright; and back row, Teddi Snow, Montarra Pfannenstiel, Sarah Gonzales, Dwight Young, Aaron Huskey and Carol Beck.

The Great Bend Community Theatre will stage its next production, “Guess Who’s Coming to Supper” this week at the Crest Theater, 1905 Lakin. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 20-22, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 23.

The play, by Eddie McPherson and directed by Rob Munden, tells the story of Ally and her boyfriend Kevin. Ally is afraid to introduce Kevin to her parents, even though Kevin is good looking, a law school graduate, and has a wonderful job.

He has one major flaw and Ally is terrified to tell her parents what it is. After mistaking an elderly, married air-conditioner repairman and a redneck neighbor for Kevin, Ally’s parents finally get to meet her mysterious boyfriend and uncover the vile, ugly truth: Not only is Kevin not a fan of their beloved sports team, he roots for the rival team. 

Then when Kevin proposes to Ally, all heck breaks loose as more family secrets and even a family curse are revealed.

The cast includes Erin Ferguson, Karen Gore, Talitha Crow, Jann Curtright, Teddi Snow, Montarra Pfannenstiel, Sarah Gonzales, Dwight Young, Aaron Huskey and Carol Beck.
