Red Velvet Cake War

In November 2018, the Performing Arts Center’s stage was graced with The Red Velvet Cake War. Presented by the Landmark Drama Department under the direction of Nate Efinger and Technical Director Andy Knox, the play was a hit among actors and audience members alike.

This play was the first to have a selected cast, which resulted into a group of hardworking and passionate performers that put on an entertaining, enjoyable, and articulate show. About three cousins Gaynelle, Jimmy, and Peaches out to make the best red velvet cake in order to save Gaynelle’s house from their aunt, even in the face of a tornado, crazy psychologist, and hopeless hunt for a man.

“It was fun and it was cool to spend time with the cast.” —Nellie Maxwell (Peaches, one of the three leads)

“The Landmark Theater Department did an excellent job on the production, it was very entertaining to watch, and everyone involved did a fantastic job.” —Annie Abate (audience member)
