The musical comedy “The Great American Trailer Park Musical” will be presented by Glasgow Theatre Company June 24-July2. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays June 24-25 and July 1- 2 at 8 p.m., with Saturday matinees on June 25 and July 2 at 2 p.m.
With music and lyrics by David Nehls and book by Betsy Kelso, The Great American Trailer Park Musical is a musical comedy packed with big hair and raucous fun, all set in the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Starke, Fla.
Experience the “other side of the tracks” with tollbooth collector Norbert, his talk-show loving agoraphobic wife Jeannie, and Pippi, a stripper with a heart of gold who is on the run. The three are soon engulfed in a love triangle that is narrated by a delightfully trashy trio acting as the show’s Greek chorus, who invites the audience into a world full of Astroturf, roadkill, spray cheese and pure, adulterated enjoyment.
The show will star local actors Renee Everhart, Martin Robinette, Audrey Kuykendal, Chris Bowen, Elizabeth Paxton, Ashley McLaughlin and Clint Denman. Directing the musical is Amber Davis, with Michael Thomas Griffith as assistant director, Victoria Burnette as stage manager, Chris Yoder as musical director and Rebecca Catalano as choreographer.
“The Great American Trailer Park Musical” was performed as part of the inaugural New York Music Theater Festival and opened Off-Broadway the following year. The Glasgow production is produced through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
The show contains adult themes and strong language and is intended for mature audiences only.
