COTTONWOOD SHORES – A riotously funny, Southern-fried comedy, “The Red Velvet Cake War” runs April 26-May 13 at Hill Country Community Theatre.

The Verdeen cousins aunt LeMerle canceled the family reunion because Gaynelle “accidentally” crashed her minivan through her husband’s girlfriend’s doublewide. If Gaynelle can pull off a successful reunion, she can prove her sanity. She also bets her house that she can make a better red velvet cake than her aunt.

Thrown into the mix are an excursion to dig up the town’s time capsule to get a famous red velvet cake recipe and some crazy antics on the hottest day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season as things spin out of control!

“The Red Velvet Cake War” is written by the comedy team of Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten (“Dixie Swim Club,” “The Hallelujah Girls,” and “Dashing Through the Snow”).

Wendy Ferrell is directing.

“Our audience already knows these authors are funny, and that's definitely true with this show,” Ferrell said. “The cast has already bonded over the riotous lines and action. It's fast-paced and a little madcap-laugh-until-you-cry hilarity.”

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and 2:15 p.m. Sunday at the theater, 4003 RR 2147 West.

Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for students with valid identification. Reservations may be made by calling (830) 798-8944, going to, or visiting the box office. Tickets go on sale April 19 to the general public.

The Hill Country Community Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
