Southern Baptist Sissies in Oak Cliff
Emerson Collins’ film Southern Baptist Sissies plays for three nights at the Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd. in Oak Cliff.

“The film is a unique hybrid of theater and film,” Collins said. “It is a film of the play, onstage. We filmed four live performances in two days with three cameras at each performance. Then we shot for eight days like a film, with closeups and coverage, scene by scene to hopefully create the feeling of being in the theatre for a single live performance, with the enhancement of being able to capture a new level of intimacy with the benefits of film.”

Three guests appear during the run for a Q&A after the film.

On April 17, William Belli is the special guest. He appears later that night in the Rose Room.

On April 18, Leslie Jordan appears. Jordan is also in town for a fundraiser on April 17 at the Round-Up Saloon for gay Oklahoma state Rep. Al McAffree, who is running for Congress.

The April 19 guest is screenwriter Del Shores and composer Joe Patrick Ward talks about the film.

Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m. Saturday at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10.
