The Verdeen cousins from Sweetgum, Texas, could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. They face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. They can’t back out of it now that all the plans have been made. Unfortunately, things spin hilariously out of control when a neighbor’s pet devours everything edible, a one- eyed suitor shows up to declare his love and a jaw dropping high stakes wager is made on who bakes the best RED VELVET CAKE. As this fast-paced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this much fun!

To celebrate our 30th year in San Juan Capistrano - The Camino Real Playhouse is reaching back to our earliest days for a favorite campy classic old-west Melodrama.
If you're looking for the lure of the Old West, you'll find intrigue when a series of mysterious disappearances ends in murder and romance. Set in a farm kitchen just outside of San Juan Capistrano in 1898 when the wild west show hero Matthew Merriweather meets the brave and beautiful heir to the Rainbow Ranch - Rainbow Heatherton. Foam rocks will fly at the villainous banker Culver C. Cleaver as he aims to raise some dust. The Audience will tap their toes to tunes such "I'm So Good at Being Bad!" plus the great San Juan songs they have come to expect here at the Playhouse. Enjoy a cheer-filled finale when Heroes and Villains both get exactly what they deserve.
