MC Theatre presents “Stonewater Rapture” and “The Most Massive Woman Wins” | Theatre Production

Oct. 1-3 | 8 pm
Oct. 4 | 2 pm
Clayton Center for the Arts, Haslam Family Flex Theatre

For Maryville College Theatre’s fall main stage production, guest artist Doug James will direct two one-act plays: “Stonewater Rapture” by Doug Wright and “The Most Massive Woman Wins” by Madeleine George. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and area students, and free for MC students, faculty and staff. For tickets, please contact the Clayton Center Box Office at 865-981-8151.

“The Stonewater Rapture” tells the story of two teenagers whose sexual awakening has been severely hampered by the fundamentalist fervor that runs like power lines through the Bible Belt. Just after being elected president of the youth ministry at his church’s picnic, Whitney attempts to seduce the puritanical Carlyle. She coyly refuses Whitney’s advances, citing everything from teen pregnancy to hellfire and damnation as reasons to abstain. Later, Carlyle seeks Whitney’s help after she has been the victim of a sexual assault. Rather than face the grim reality of her experience, Carlyle transforms the attack from an act of violence to a vision of glory, in which the bodies of her assailants become the angels torn from the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and the alcohol they forced upon her becomes the blood of Christ. As Carlyle’s delusions grow, Whitney must convince her of the unfortunate truth. Together they struggle to wed their simplistic religious doctrine with the often painful complexity of the real world.

“The Most Massive Woman Wins” is described as challenging, brutal and hilarious. Four women of various shapes and sizes sitting in the waiting room of a liposuction clinic explore their perceptions of body image. The women reveal their experiences dealing with their weight issues through monologues, short scenes, and even schoolyard rhymes. From painful childhood memories to frustrations with the opposite sex, these experiences both haunt and empower these women as they imagine their way to a new vision of themselves as beautiful and whole.

Clayton Center presents Mike Farris & The Roseland Rhythm Revue | Concert

April 28 | 7:30 pm
Clayton Center for the Arts, Ronald and Lynda Nutt Theatre

Whether rearranging songs of centuries past of infusing new lyrical life to half-songs, it becomes clear that Mike’s vocal gift is simply the surface of a very deep well. Mike won an Americana Music Award for New/Emerging Artist in 2008, followed by a Dove Award in 2010 and a 2015 GRAMMY® award for Best Roots Gospel Album. Overcoming addiction and finding a new normal brought Farris to Shine For All the People, the 2015 Grammy Award winner for Best Roots Gospel album which bears witness to the determination of putting one foot in front of the other and to the power of music to get you there. Mike’s spirited, soul-gospel fusion has found an enthusiastic audience. For tickets, please call the Clayton Center Box Office at 865.981.8590 or visit claytonartscenter.com.
