Lowrey most recently directed The Rocky Horror Show at NTPA Repertory and Plaid Tidings at Theatre Arlington. She's thrilled to be back on stage in Lewisville. She previously music directed Spamalot (Column Award winner for Best Musical) for GLCT in 2013 and stepped in as music director for their production of Memphis in 2017.
This charming and good-natured musical tells the true story of a legendary Texas brothel, which operated from the 1840s to 1973. Protected by a friendly sheriff and frequented by politicians, football teams, and others, the "Chicken Ranch" thrived in the small town of LaGrange, Texas. Girls came from all over to work at the ranch and make a little extra cash. However, a crusading do-gooder Houston radio commentator and his conservative audience exposed the Chicken Ranch, forcing it to shut its doors forever.
The show will officially open on Friday, June 7th at 8:00pm. Performances will continue through June 30 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 3:00pm with an added 3:00pm performance on Saturday, June 29.
