Valleytown Cultural Arts & Historical Society

The Valleytown Cultural Arts and Historical Society was organized by Andrews Chamber of Commerce members in 1986, in order to preserve the beautiful 1923 structure that had been the First Baptist Church of Andrews. Through the efforts of this non-profit organization, this cultural arts center is on the National Register of Historical Places.

A massive grant writing and fund–raising effort supported by the entire community went into action and the building was purchased in June of 1986 from the First Baptist Church specifically for the purpose of providing a facility for the community to have performing and visual arts entertainment and enrichment. In the years since the purchase of the building, the Cultural Arts & Historical Society has provided innumerable arts events for community enjoyment.

The Art Museum

The mission of the Andrews Art Museum is to give artists, writers, and musicians the opportunity to gain exposure by participating in exhibits and shows throughout the year and to continue to promote Andrews NC as a notable destination for art.

Community Youth Players and ACT2

Community Youth Players began back in the 1970’s when a group of people wanted to bring live theater opportunities to our town of Andrews, NC. What started out as one show a year has now grown to doing 5 productions from September to May including a Dessert theater show and a Dinner Show.

We recently added an adult group “ACT2” (Adult Community Theater-the second group). Several of our adult actors were involved in theater when they were younger and love coming back to the stage.

Dessert Theater – Rex’s Exes @ Valleytown Cultural Arts
Feb 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

This deliriously funny Southern-fried farce finds the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas – Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette – teetering on the brink of disasteragain. Gaynelle, frustrated and frazzled from working too many, two-bit jobs, stubbornly refuses to face the fact she’s turning the Big 5-0. In a misguided effort to lift her cousin’s spirits, Peaches, a sassy, morturarial cosmetologist who’s stuck in a romantic dry gulch, is determined to throw Gaynelle a surprise birthday party she doesn’t even want. Jimmie Wy, riding high on the success of her new wedding gown boutique for big gals – Wide Bride – reluctantly agrees to help Peaches surprise Gaynelle. But it turns out the surprise is on them when, in a startling twist, the party plans shift to a hastily thrown-together family funeral instead. The hilarity escalates when Peaches’ recently declared dead husband unexpectedly returns and his romantic links to each of the cousins is revealed. And the hits just keep on coming as a Cajun bounty hunter who’s tracking Peaches’ husband crashes the funeral and a jilted bride holds the Verdeens hostage with a loaded paintball gun. All the while, the cousins struggle to avoid their bitter Aunt LaMerle who’s hell-bent on cracking the ranks of the elite Daughters of the Nation of Texas and exacting revenge on the Verdeen girls before the dirt hits the casket. As the outrageous complications of this ferociously-funny JONES HOPE WOOTEN COMEDY explode into chaos, you’ll find yourself hoping your next family celebration – be it birthday, wedding or funeral – is half this much fun!
