The Panhandle Players’ newest production, "The Kitchen Witches" is coming to Port St. Joe this weekend.



Set in a cooking-show kitchen in a small local cable-television studio, Isobel Lomax (Melonie Inzetta) and Dolly Biddle (Sally Crown) 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 (Torben Madson) 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.



The two-act comedy, written by Caroline Smith, is directed by Ann Cowles. Liam DeVaughn rounds out the cast as the Rob, The Camera Guy.



You can catch this show produced by the Forgotten Coast’s premier community theatre troupe this weekend at the First United Methodist Church, 1001 Constitution Dr, in Port St. Joe.



Door opens at 7 p.m. and show starts at 7:30 Eastern Time on Friday and Saturday evenings, and 3 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $20, and include freshly made desserts for your enjoyment.



You can also see a second weekend of performances on Valentine’s Day weekend on St. George Island.



Tickets may be purchased throughout Franklin County, or at No Name Café Books & More in Port St. Joe, and Caribbean Coffee in Mexico Beach.
