AUDITIONS!!! - Sunday, OCT. 27

 

The Great American Trailer Park Musical

Music by: David Nehls

Book by: Betsy Kelso

 

Directed/Choreographed by: Henry Scott

Music Direction by: John Allen Bankson

RUN DATES: May 7 to May 30, 2020

 

There's a new tenant at Armadillo Acres and she's wreaking havoc all over Florida's most exclusive trailer park (is that an oxymoron?). When Pippi, the stripper on the run, comes between the daytime-TV-loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband, the storms begin to brew.

 

Warning: This show contains crude language, adult situations, ugly wigs, adultery, bad perms, spray cheese, tacky outfits, road kill, hysterical pregnancy, kleptomania, and strippers. With music set to country rock, gospel, blues and disco, it's everything a trash-talking musical should be.
