  • Howard Crabtree's When Pigs Fly

    Howard Crabtree's When Pigs Fly

    Kalita Humphreys Theater
    July 9 - July 25, 2021

    Conceived by Howard Crabtree and Mark Waldrop
    Sketches and Lyrics by Mark Waldrop
    Music by Dick Gallagher

    Uptown Players is proud to present the hilarious musical When Pigs Fly! This production will be replacing Head Over Heels from Uptown Players postponed 2020 season. 

    In a hastily booked theater under renovation, Howard struggles to put on a lavish musical revue over numerous obstacles, including the near-mutiny of his cast, and the nagging memory of his high school guidance counselor who told him he'd succeed “when pigs fly.” Though the spirit of the show is gay — in both senses of the word — When Pigs Fly is completely accessible to anyone who can appreciate being smart and silly at the same time. Just when it seems all is lost, Howard realizes the problem isn't that he's gone too far — it's that he hasn't gone far enough. The show goes on, and all of Howard's fabulously sequined dreams come true.

  • A Very Sordid Wedding

    A Very Sordid Wedding

    Kalita Humphreys Theater
    September 24 - October 3, 2021

    It's 2015, seventeen years after Peggy tripped over G.W.'s wooden legs and died in Sordid Lives, and life has moved into the present for the residents of Winters, Texas. Based on the 2017 hit film of the same name, A Very Sordid Wedding explores the questions, bigotry and the fallout of what happens when gay marriage comes to communities and families that are not quite ready to accept it.   Bigoted “religious freedom,” marriage equality and cultural acceptance are all explored with Del Shores’ trademark approach to using comedy and his much-beloved Sordid Lives characters to deal with these important current social issues and the very real process of accepting your family for who they are instead of who you want them to be.
