"The Greater American Trailer Park Musical" is pulling up to The Music Box Dinner Playhouse starting on Sept. 21 and continuing through Oct. 7.
Frequently compared to both TV's "Desperate Housewives" and theater's "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," this funny, sexy, bawdy, R-rated musical tale is seasoned with a murderous ex-boyfriend, an electric chair, the Ice Capades and a gorgeous stripper on the run who comes between a Sally Jessy loving agoraphobic housewife and her love-starved, dim-witted husband.
With guidance from a singing Greek chorus of trailer park divas residing in Armadillo Acres, a Florida mobile home community, this side-splitting musical ranges across the American Radio dial from country to blues to rock to disco to bump n' grind to R&B. Music and lyrics are by David Nehls with a book by Betsy Kelso.
Director Dana Feigenblatt has assembled a truckload of talented musical and comedic actors to tow this mobile home musical home. All cast members are highly recognizable Music Box veterans, including Jessica Werbin, Cate McDonald, Amanda Reese, Scott Colin, Amber McKenna, Ryan Engle and Feigenblatt herself.
Scenic and lighting design is by Michael Gallagher and costume design is by Amanda Reese.
Performances of "The Greater American Trailer Park Musical" will be held at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 3 p.m. Sundays with a scrumptious buffet dinner to be served 90 minutes prior. The show contains adult content and language and is recommended for mature audiences only.
Tickets are now on sale for dinner and show and show only and may be purchased through the box office at 283-2195.
The Music Box Dinner Playhouse is located at 196 Hughes St., Swoyersville
