CULLMAN, Ala. – The zany residents of “Kornfield Kounty” are planning a return to Cullman to perform “The Hee Haw Show.” They invite you to join them for some singing, dancing and tons of laughs Feb. 13 at the Donald E. Green Active Adult Center and Feb. 29 at the Hanceville Civic Center. Both shows will begin at 2 p.m. Those who give a minimum of $5 at the door will be entered in a drawing for door prizes. 

It will be the second year the Senior Outreach Organization has presented “Hee Haw.” Director Jamie Brown promises February’s shows will feature more characters and hilarious new skits. The Tribune was treated to a sneak peek of the upcoming shows at the cast’s first dress rehearsal Wednesday in Hanceville. 

It was fantastic to see Buck Owens and Roy Clark together again! Grandpa Jones showed off his dance moves as George Jones delivered “Mountain Dew.” The entire Hee Haw gang was having a blast. 

“The Hee Haw Show” will bring an all-star lineup that everyone will be sure to love. Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Porter Wagoner and other country music legends will join Kornfield Kounty favorites, including the Hee Haw Honeys, The Culhanes, Lulu Roman, Archie’s Barber Shop and The Gossip Girls. 

Don’t worry, “Pfft! You Was Gone,” the Joke Fence and “Gloom, Despair and Agony” will also be included. 

The cast has been rehearsing for the upcoming shows since October.

Brown said this week, “This is our first dress rehearsal and with the band. The show will be so different this year. We have so much added stuff and all new lines.”

There are several guest star surprises that you won’t want to miss! 

For more information, call Brown at the Senior Outreach Organization at 256-339-9863.
