HAZELHURST -
You'll get the chance to catch a variety of theater shows this summer in Hazelhurst.

Tommy O's Playhouse kicks off its summer season Wednesday.

There is a wide mix of shows this year from an old-time country music show to plays written by locals.

"We try to revolve all of our shows within a week or so that if people are up here they can come see one show, then see another show," says Tommy Organiscak.

There are many new cast members this year.

One of them is Luke Funk all the way from New York City.

"Part of the reason why I wanted to come up here is because it's such a challenge to do the 'rep' theater, especially because I am doing four of the eight shows here," says Luke Funk.

Tommy O's Playhouse is one of just four revolving repertory theaters in the country.

"[Class was] better than wasting time and just sitting and doing nothing in prison," Pranke said.
