Photo Flash: First Look at TUTS' THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS, Now Playing

July 17
3:30 PM 2014

Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) will continue its annual summer tradition of offering free musical theatre with the unforgettable Texas tale The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, running through July 20 at 8:15 p.m. each night at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Check out a first look below!

It's all big songs and big hair in this sassy, spirited musical about a real-life brothel in Texas. Based on the "Chicken Ranch", the infamous, long-running house of ill repute, this tongue-in-cheek story chronicles Miss Mona Stangley, a classy yet brassy madam with a heart of gold, as her "business" becomes the center of a media controversy. Thrusting the Chicken Ranch into the spotlight is Melvin P. Thorpe, a loud-mouthed reporter based on Houston's own late Marvin Zindler. Spicing up the story line is a hot-headed, trigger-happy town sheriff, the Texas A&M football team, and Miss Mona's risqué girls. The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas will be a feisty, fun-filled treat that includes favorites such as "A Lil' Ole Bitty Pissant Country Place" and "Hard Candy Christmas".

Free tickets for the covered seats are available on the day of performance between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Miller Theatre Box Office. Free tickets are limited to four per person. Any tickets remaining will be given out one hour before curtain.

Don't want to wait in line? For each $50 tax-deductible donation to TUTS, the organization will set aside two reserved tickets under the covered pavilion so you may enjoy the show and experience how your generosity makes the music happen. To reserve tickets, visit TUTS.com/DonateNow or call 713.558.2651. Ticket holders are asked to arrive early as any unfilled seats will be released to the general public at 8 p.m.
