'Kitchen Witches' cook up comedy

Galax Theatre Guild production begins this weekend


INDEPENDENCE — The Galax Theatre Guild presents “Kitchen Witches," starting this weekend at the Historic 1908 Courthouse in Independence.
Isobel Lomax, played by Stephannie Dees, and Dolly Biddle, played by Karen Stevens, are two “mature” cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other.
When circumstances put them together on a TV show called “The Kitchen Witches,” the insults are flung harder than the food.
Dolly’s long-suffering TV producer son Stephen, played by Dr. Art Pemberton, tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly’s dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel’s, it’s a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer.
Directed by Ginger Correll, the cast of “Kitchen Witches” also includes Galax Theatre Guild favorites Kenny Davis and Gay Zachary as Rob/Robbie and Taylor Copenhaver and David Roberson as Lenny.

All tickets are $8 and can be purchased online at www.artsculturalcouncil.org, at the Galax Visitor’s Center on East Grayson Street and at The Treasury in the Historic 1908 Courthouse in Independence.
