"It’s holiday time down in Armadillo Acres (North Florida’s premier mobile-living community), and everyone’s filled with warmth and beer. But when a freak bout of amnesia strikes the trailer park Scrooge, neighborly love is put to the test. Be on hand as Betty, Lin, and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park musical! This companion to the original Great American Trailer Park Musical is just as much of a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time — but with tinsel and Keg Nog.
Jaye Pierce appeared in Theatre Alliance’s production of the original Great American Trailer Park Musical and is thrilled to head back to her old stomping grounds. “After six years, I am happier than a light up flamingo to be back at Armadillo Acres,” says Pierce. “I am truly just thrilled beyond belief (and I am not just saying this) to be back with the hysterical writers and most of the same cast from the original.”
Ken Ashford, also in the original show, echoes her thoughts. “It’s great to be back with this cast,” says Ashford, “We just laugh ourselves to tears!”
Says director Jamie Lawson, “Rarely does a sequel surpass the original in humor and creativity, but I think the writers of The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical have struck gold. With the addition of some new characters and hysterical one-liners and outrageous situations, this show is destined to become a campy hit!”
With a cast of strong performers and a great script, you won’t find a funnier or more entertaining way to celebrate the holiday season. Bring your favorite crazies to see ours.
“…the writing [delivers] clever one-liners, puns, and zingers that leave the audience absolutely breathless with hearty laughter. [David Nehls'] spunky melodies are catchy and the lyrics so gut busting that you'll need to see the show more than once to catch all the jokes because of how much you'll be laughing." —BroadwayWorld.com.
The Theatre Alliance production is directed by Jamie Lawson and musically directed by Tommy Jackson. The cast features Jaye Pierce, Ken Ashford, Linda Shillito, Michele Groneck, Kaylee Gonzalez, and Gray Smith.
