    The Naples Players Presents: “Spinning Into Butter”

    Wednesday, October 28, 2015 to Sunday, November 8, 2015

    Location: 701 5th Avenue South, Naples FL 34102

    Spinning Into Butter is a provocative play that examines the issue of racism and political correctness in America and more specifically, in academia. When one of the few African American students at Belmont College begins receiving racist hate mail, students and administration alike attempt to voraciously prove their tolerance while at the same time condemning one another. At the center of it all is Sarah Daniels, the new dean of students. As she attempts to diffuse the situation, Sarah is forced to explore her own feelings on racism, which leads to some surprising discoveries.

    Location: 701 5th Avenue South, Naples FL 34102

    Charlie Baker needs to getaway and his friend “Froggy” knows just the place, his favorite fishing lodge in rural Georgia. However, when “Froggy” has to tend to some business, the pathologically shy Charlie dreads having to converse with people he doesn’t know. “Frogg’s” solution? Tell everyone that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and does not speak English. But the plan backfires when the lodge’s inhabitants reveal deep secrets and diabolical plans in front of their quiet foreign guest. Nonstop hilarity ensues and builds to an outrageously funny climax in this wild and wacky comedy.
