My daughter and I are going to be guests of Fayetteville Visitor’s Bureau for a Mother-Daughter weekend coming soon. One of the things we get to do is see the play, The Cake.
I am so looking forward to next weekend. Why do you ask? Well, you see Gracie and I are taking a mother-daughter weekend getaway to one of the towns that has held a special place in my heart because of unfinished furniture. ( Not sure what I am talking about? Then you need to make sure that you read this post.)
This Fayetteville Visitor Bureau has put together a great experience for us and I can hardly wait, I am already planning my outfits for the two-day getaway. We will be experiencing some amazing things including going to the theater. That sounds like such a posh thing to do on a Friday night. Dinner and the Theater- I mean really who am I?
The play that we will be seeing is called The Cake. I am telling you a little bit about it now before our big weekend, because the weekend we will be there it will be the closing weekend, so I want to make sure I give you a chance to grab tickets for what I am sure will be a show you won’t want to miss.
The show tells the story of Della (Libby McNeill Seymour), a NC-based baker who makes cakes, not decisions—she leaves that to her husband Tim (Greg King). When Jen (Jessica Giannone), the daughter of her deceased best friend, comes home and asks her to bake her wedding cake, Della is thrilled, but when she learns that the “lucky guy” is a “lucky woman” Macy (Olivia London), Della is left to make one of the hardest decisions in her life: to bake the wedding cake or not. David Hemsley Caldwell directs this performance. Not only are there cakes all over the stage, but the audience will also get to indulge in a slice of cake after each performance. The sweets are provided by local bakery The Sweet Palette.
(HELLO WE GET TO EAT CAKE!!!!) They had me at cake. Sounds awesome right? Well, I know you are probably asking how can I get me some cake tickets. Read on for more information.
The performance schedule is Wednesday through Friday at 7:30 pm, Saturdays at 2 pm and 7:30 pm, and 2:00 pm on Sundays. Tickets are $25 (preview performances are $15). As a Blue Star Theater, CFRT offers Military Discounts for all performances and hosts two Military Appreciation Nights (April 10). The show runs through April 21st.
