Aunt Rudele's Family Reunion

To help lift the spirits of community members as well as theater fans wherever they may be, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is pleased to offer streaming video of “Aunt Rudele’s Family Reunion.” Viewers will laugh out loud as WBTT founder and artistic director Nate Jacobs dons a dirty-blond wig, glasses and heels to portray Aunt Rudele, the busybody relative who knows no boundaries but always knows best. This hilarious one-man (one-woman) show stars and was written by Jacobs (with contributions from Julian Olf, who directed the show). While attending the Stevens family reunion, Aunt Rudele introduces her kinfolk through songs, dances, prayers, sermons, and verbal duels. Her observations are searing and laugh-out loud funny. In the Southern tradition, this show serves up a main dish of laughter with a side order of down-home wisdom. Filmed during a two-night run in 2016, “Aunt Rudele’s Family Reunion” will be available from February 12 through March 28. A new interview of Jacobs by WBTT Associate Managing Director Travis Ray will be available on the WBTT Live page of westcoastblacktheatre.org, exploring how Jacobs created and developed the character. Tickets are $15/household. Go to westcoastblacktheatre.org or call 941-366-1505.
