Bay Tree Council bringing theater back in November


The show will go on.

The Bay Tree Council for the Performing Arts announced late Tuesday that plays will begin again this November, with “Seasonal Allergies,” directed by Emily Edmonson.

It will be the first time in almost two years that a live-action play has been performed at the Weatherford Centre in Red Bay. Performances were halted early in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the stage sitting silent since.

Auditions will be held Sunday, September 12, 2021, at 2 p.m. and Monday, September 13, 2021, at 7 p.m. at the Weatherford Centre in Red Bay. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. The cast consists of three adult males, three adult females and one child, male or female. Older teenagers could be cast as young adults.

Dates for the performances will be November 11-14, 2021 at The Weatherford Centre. If you have any questions you may send them through the group’s Facebook page or contact Scotty Kennedy at 256-356-8758 or

About the play

Do you have Seasonal Allergies? You might be experiencing the symptoms of them and not even know it. Seasonal Allergies tend to show themselves right around the holidays: do you feel a tickle in the back of your throat when you realize your vegetable dishes cooked faster than you thought and now they’re ready a full hour before the turkey will be out of the over? Do your eyes water uncontrollably after you’ve nearly broken your back climbing into the attic to find the Christmas lights and then discover that only half the strand lights up? Do you find yourself over heated when family members decide to extend their vacation and “hang out” for a few more days in your home?

Then you, my friend, have got Seasonal Allergies. And you are not alone! Nine out of 10 people have Seasonal Allergies, but nobody has a case worse than Julia Shelby and her brother Peter. So get ready to laugh away your throat tickle and clear your sinuses with a healthy dose of Holiday Fun.
