Mayor Declares Sept 9, 2011 as Jones, Hope, and Wooten Day

Normally the Thursday prior to the opening of a show is reserved for dress rehearsal. Not this time. Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten - authors of Mama Won't Fly - came to town to meet season subscribers and the cast/crew of Mama Won't Fly. Angela Graves hosted the party for approximately 100 guests at her house dubbed 'Villa Graves'. Mayor Webb Melder declared September 9, 2011 (opening night for the World Premiere) as Jones, Hope, and Wooten day. Believe it or not, this is the first time that any town has declared such a day for our authors. Jessie, Nicholas, and Jamie were overwhelmed by our southern hospitality. After the party the authors returned to their other host - Lyn Hawthorne Howard - who has provided a place for the authors to stay while they are here. In case you missed the party, check out the pictures.
