“Summer Mummers?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Summer Mummers presentation in the classical Yucca Theater downtown Midland is flash back in time, back to the 1920's- and 30's. Community actors put on a somewhat risque "Ol fashioned melerdrama". The presentation material is appropriate for adults and teens. Casual dress only. Beverages available are soda pop and beer....Be certain to purchase a bucket of popcorn when you come in because part of the fun is to throw handfuls of popcorn at the stage and your fellow spectators.

“Fun times to be had by all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Summer MuMmers is a Midland tradition. They do a vaudeville-style comedy performance skewering local and national news (note: the locals are conservative, so the comedy runs accordingly). The best thing about MuMmers, though, is the popcorn. No, not the taste - the throwing!! The audience is encouraged to participate by tossing popcorn at the villains (and each other). Don't wear nice clothes; buttery oil stains. And ladies, (a) don't bring a bucket-style or other open top purse, (b) don't wear a low-cut blouse (unless you like popcorn in your bra), and (c) don't wear high-heel shoes (unless they have good traction in butter). Good times!! I wouldn't recommend staying with children under the age of about 13 for the Olio, though - the humor becomes more adult with that part of the show.

“For native west Texans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Summer Mummers is old favorite enjoyed by native west Texans, otherwise most of the jokes will not make sense. If you want a really laid back, popcorn throwing evening this is the place for you. It is an adult show.

“Acting with a kick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

it is not your mothers type of play and the acting is as bad as it gets. that, my friend is the point. great melodrama, cold beer and lots of cheering on the good guys and throwing popcorn. the valdville atmosphere can't be beat for a good time.
