  • - A new Foggy Valley Gang production is prepping to hit the stage at LampLight Theatre in January with “What Happens in Vegas…” The Goodin Family and their friends have been invited to participate in “Hosanna National Talent Search.” The winner of the competition will be taking home a grand prize of $10,000. And where do you think the competition takes place? Las Vegas. Known to most people as “Sin City”, the Foggy Valley Gang is determined to help redeem the town through their godly talents.

    Needless to say, the rivalry between self-inflated family members causes tension and some fierce competition. Instead of working together, each person is out for themselves. In the midst of the chaos, Ura Goodin (youngest daughter), develops a gambling addiction. Unbeknownst to the family, she ends up owing money to femme fatale loan shark and organized crime leader, “Muggsy” Malone. Family Friend, Rev. Clyde T. Humperdinck, tries to pressgang his cousin and Las Vegas legend, Englebert, to come to the family’s aid before “Muggsy” comes for her money.

    Some of the family’s farcical acts will include “Viva, Las Vegas” by Elvis impersonator, Clovis Bodine. A Vegas showgirl act by nemeses Mama Goodin and Cleopha Blair is guaranteed to bring the house down. Florence Rakestraw will “bring it” with her questionable song interpretation number. The scandalous diva and family outcast, Willa Lovewright, will be competing as well. “Wanna be” country star, Otis Purdy, is ready to lend his vocal talents to the competition. Nydifer, Spoolie, and some surprise acts will also stumble upon the stage. “What Happens in Vegas…” should stay in Vegas, but unfortunately, some scandals are hard to keep secret.

    “What Happens in Vegas…” will be presented every weekend, January 12 through February 4, at LampLight Theatre at 140 Broad Street in Kingsport, TN. Nightly performances will be at 7:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Matinees on Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m.

    Dinner & Show Package: Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 5:30. Choose to eat after the matinee or before the evening show. Dinner will be served at The Emporium Banquet Hall (Next door to theatre). The cost is $30 per Adult and $17 per Student (12 & Under)/ Children FREE (3 & Under). BJ's Catering will be providing the dinner.

    Show Only: Admission is a suggested donation of $10 Adults, $5 Students, and FREE for children 5 and under. Doors will open one hour prior.

    For reservations and information, please contact the LampLight box office at (423) 343-1766, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Fun things to do in Mendota

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area. To learn more about how to become a Town Planner franchise owner, please view our franchise information page.
