AUDITION DATE #1 = Sunday, October 27; 1p to 5p; at TNT

SIGN-UP for your 5-minute slot by replying to this email (see times below)…and indicate the CHARACTER for which you are auditioning.

 

Synopsis: There's a new tenant at Armadillo Acres and she's wreaking havoc all over Florida's most exclusive trailer park (is that an oxymoron?). When Pippi, the stripper on the run, comes between the daytime-TV-loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband, the storms begin to brew.

 

Warning: This show contains crude language, adult situations, ugly wigs, adultery, bad perms, spray cheese, tacky outfits, road kill, hysterical pregnancy, kleptomania, and strippers. With music set to country rock, gospel, blues and disco, it's everything a trash-talking musical should be.
