The Pumphouse Players opened their new season this month and to start things off on the right note and to pay tribute to Elvis Presley, the King himself, “Radio T.B.S.” is playing this weekend at the Legion Theater in downtown Cartersville.

Directed by Leslie McCrary in her return to the Legion Theatre’s stage, “Radio T.B.S.” has a cast of 10 of the funniest women on stage together, including some favorite veterans as well as some bright newcomers.

“The ladies in this show are top notch,” said McCrary. “They have bonded like sisters and laugh at each other as much as the audience laughs at them. It is my first time back at Pumphouse Players in five years and I am loving it. It is a really funny play and what better way to start off a new season than with a comedy?”

The play is about 10 women who live in a trailer community called Luna Del Mar in Florida and centers around two of the women who run a small radio station from the clubhouse.

“Radio T.B.S.” (Trailer Park Broadcasting Scandals) opened on a special night, Aug. 16, to coincide with the 35th anniversary of Presley’s death. Remaining show times are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.

General admission tickets are $14, groups of 10 or more are $12 and $10 for Pumphouse Player members.

McCrary said returning to the Legion Theater to direct is one of the many things she enjoys about the theater culture in Bartow County.

“It means everything to me to be a part of the theatre community here in Bartow County,” McCrary said. “I had a wonderful mentor, Don Kordecki, who took me under his wing when I first moved here 14 years ago. There have been a lot of ups and downs for theatre and for me in the past few years, but the theatre family is a loving family. I have a very large family. They keep bringing me back.”
