It has been designated “Alabama’s Official Folklife Play” by the Alabama Legislature and received the 2008 Governor’s Tourism Award.“We appreciate those who come and enjoy what we do,” Bowden said. “The cast and crew work very hard to prepare for each season. They are very dedicated and it takes that kind of dedication and enthusiasm to keep this going, as well as the interest and support of our audiences. We thank all of those who are part of ‘Come Home, It’s Suppertime.’ They share in any success that we might enjoy.” By Jaine Treadwell Book Nook to reopen Email the author Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Bill Hazen, play director, said the 2009 spring production will offer something new and something as familiar and comfortable as an old shoe.“Each year, we change a few things and add something new,” he said. “But the down home flavor of the play never changes. I think, that’s what makes the play so successful.”Hazen said he’s been told that “Come Home” is like going home to grandma’s and spending time with family.“It’s real people telling real stories,” he said. “And, no matter how many times ‘grandpa’ has told that story, it’s just as good and just and funny as the first time he told it.” At “Come Home,” a full country supper is served to familiar toe-tapping tunes played by the WPA Scratch Band and then the audience is treated to a two-act play that tells the story of Hard Times and good times.“Our hope is that each person in the audience will leave having basked in the warmth of being home at suppertime,” Hazen said.
