Start your weekend early and check out Saline Area Players' production of Scrambled, written by Pat Cook, on March 21-23 at 7:30 PM at The Fifth Corner, 211 Willis Rd.  Saline Area Players are in dress rehearsals this week and are having a blast putting together this fun show.  Ticket information is online at and tickets are available at the door (cash or check).  Doors open at 7:00 PM for general seating.


In the story, Purdy (played by Karrie Waarala) who runs her Showtime Café famous for such dishes as “Fistful of Dollar Pancakes” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Ham,” is getting ready for a food critic purported to be in town.  Then she learns that her old boyfriend is back in town.  She and Austin made a pledge that if they weren’t hooked up to anyone else in 25 years after high school, they’d get together.  During her flutter of activity, the elderly town gossips, Amelia (Ann Marie Mann) and Celia (Patti RInge), spread the word.  Oracle (Gary Glover), practically a fixture in the place, meantime gives Cody (Alex Ross) advice on winning over his sweetheart, waitress Jeanie (Emma Hutchinson). which ends up in an engagement, much to Jeanie’s delight and Cody’s surprise.  A new couple, the Grants, show up in town creating even more confusion, and each stranger is subject to the townspeople’s suspicions.  And the big question is, will Purdy and Austin get together?


Others in the cast are Barbara Day, Jerry Doty, John Harrell, Taylor Hart, Brent Lofgren, Kyle Newmeyer, Krissa Rumsey and Hannah Weatherly.  The show is directed by Mary Rumman and produced by Alyssa Dawson.


Scrambled promises to have a little bit of everything – small town flavor, romance, and plenty of laughs. Join Saline Area Players for a fun night out!
