What happens when a hot young stripper with a questionable agenda moves into a North Florida mobile home and steals the attention of the married man next door? Lotsa stuff, including — but not limited to — magic marker huffing, handguns, agoraphobia, 70s and 80s nostalgia, talk shows, spray cheese, road kill, hysterical pregnancy, a broken electric chair, kleptomania, flan and disco.

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.

Some people will love this one, but I found it theatrically stunted and a bit offensive in that it would be funnier if I were far more conservative. It will play best with people who unapologetically sport their MAGA hats and follow certain Twitter accounts without remorse.

Stages Repertory Theatre is excited to present a brand new production of the iconic musical, Little Shop of Horrors. The sci-fi cult classic is slated for an 8-week run beginning March 6 in Stages' Yeager Theatre.
by BWW News Desk - Feb 24, 2019
Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names 'Audrey II', after his coworker crush. However, this is no ordinary plant. It's a "Mean Green Mother from Outer Space" - a pushy, R & B singing monster that feeds on blood and is intent on global domination! As grim as that sounds, a lively du-wop musical score, reminiscent of the Motown era, coupled with a fabulously humorous script results in the most fun anyone can have watching wickedness unfold. Intertwined with the humor are truly touching moments where the dream of escaping Skid Row makes you root for the characters in this classic cult favorite rock comedy.

At Theater West End, you've entered the world of WEST SIDE STORY before even taking your seat. Getting there requires walking across the blue-collar, gang-ridden streets of 1950s New York in the Upper West Side. There's graffiti on the floor beneath you and the walls all around. T-shirts hang out to dry on clotheslines over your head. There's a basketball goal on the cage-wire fence the band sits behind. You might even be seated next to a fire hydrant or a traffic cone. It takes a moment to remember that this same space was home to Madison County's bridges just a couple months ago...

If you've ever wondered what the home life of the guests on Jerry Springer was like, you're in luck! THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL, written by David Nehls and Betsy Kelso, is an adult musical romp about the tenants of Armadillo Acres, Florida's most 'exclusive' trailer park. It was first performed at the very first annual New York Music Theater Festival in 2004 and made its Off-Broadway debut in 2005. When Pippi (Emily Villarreal), a stripper on the run, becomes the newest tenant, she comes between the agoraphobic Jeannie (Julie Foster) and Norbert (Jarret Mallon) her tollbooth collector husband. What ensues is a hilarious whirlwind tour of a world filled with adultery, strip clubs, flan, spray cheese, ex-boyfriends, permanent marker sniffing, storms, press-on nails and the Ice Capades. There's no deep message here, but there are plenty of laughs, winning performances and great singing voices.If you've ever wondered what the home life of the guests on Jerry Springer was like, you're in luck!
