ABOUT THE SHOW
The Great American Trailer Park Musical
Music and Lyrics by David Nehls, Book by Betsy Kelso

Sparkling like aluminum siding, this campy, caustic musical fable is ripe with adultery, hysterical pregnancy, strippers, murderous ex-boyfriends, Costco, and the Ice Capades. Complete with a trashy Greek chorus of trailer park divas, Armadillo Acres is Florida’s most exclusive mobile home community. But when a hot young stripper on the run comes between an agoraphobic housewife and her tollbooth collector husband, the hurricane of laughter begins to brew.

“More fun than a chair-throwing episode of Jerry Springer set to music.” –The New Yorker
