[ May 17, 2023 ] Tater Patch is proud to be putting on a Youth Summer Camp again. The dates for this "TaterPalooza" will be July 17 - 21 from 12:30 - 4:30 pm.

Applications will be honored on a first-received basis, so apply soon if you're young ones (ages 6-18, in two groups within each camp day) would like to come out and learn a little about being on stage!

It's great fun and gives them an exciting experience. We've found it's very good in developing self-confidence and poise among the youngsters of our community. With questions, please email and put "Youth Camp" in the subject line. Someone will get back to you as soon as possible.


While all this is being planned, another great Tater Patch Players comedy is in rehearsal. Independence Day at Happy Meadows, by Laurie King, is a rollicking story about a group of senior citizens who have had enough! They're planning their escape from Happy Meadows retirement home on the Fourth of July, and no one's gonna stop them.

Director Phyllis Zerkle, who was recently on stage as Annelle in Steel Magnolilas. Now she's guiding five actors in showing off all their comedy skills. The cast consists of three familiar favorites, Kerry Rosewall, Sherry Stoney and Deb Grecol, and two new faces: Betsy Robie plays Holly, one of the would-be "escapees" and Sonny Sellers plays Gus the delivery man.

There is plenty of humor to take you into your own Independence Day weekend as the performances are June 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 30 and July 1 and 2. Tickets are available at the website under "buy tickets".

And finally, this week, May 19, 20 and 21, at 2 pm, Tater Patch Players' own Homeschool Drama Class will present its end of class performance Aladdin.

This is a charming version of the classic tale in a short play sure to delight all ages. Children are welcome, but may not be left unattended at the theater. There is no admission charge, although donations to the program are very welcome.

IF you would like to become part of our Tater Patch family, please send an email to and put "volunteer" in the subject line. There are so many fun and easy ways to be involved.

One of them is to help with ushering and concessions on our performance dates. You can be the welcoming face of Tater Patch and have the opportunity to see a performance! Please let us know if this is your interest, as we are just now enrolling our helpers for Independence Day at Happy Meadows.
