Henry Perkins, a mild-mannered C.P.A., accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase. Finding it filled with assumed illicit cash, he rushes home to grab his wife and buy a one-way ticket to Barcelona. However, the police soon arrive, as does a detective thinking that Henry is dead. The high-energy fall farce is here and it's "Funny Money!"

The Verdeen cousins (Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette) could not have picked a worse time to schedule their family reunion. They face an uphill battle on the hottest day in July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. Soon a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeen's descend upon their southern town and things spin hilariously out of control. You will wish your own family reunions were this much fun!
This production runs for seven dates over the course of two weekends. Be sure to make your reservations and don't miss this family-friendly hootenanny!
