Its holiday time down in Armadillo Acres (Florida’s premier mobile-living community) and everyone’s filled with warmth and beer. Your favorite trio (Betty, Lin, and Pickles) jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park musical!

When Darlene, the trailer park Scrooge, get a freak bout of amnesia just in time for the Christmas holiday decorating contest, it’s only a matter of time before the festivities include what we’ve come to expect from the residents – cat-fightin’, chair throwin’ and bad puns.

“… the writing [delivers] clever one-liners, puns, and zingers that leave the audience absolutely breathless with hearty laughter.” – Broadway World

Rating: Contains adult situations and language.

The cast includes 4 females and 2 males. Vocal score require 2 sopranos, 1-second soprano, 1 alto and 2 baritones or one baritone and 1 second tenor.

The show comes complete with the trailer park version of the 12 Days of Christmas and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. What’s unexpected is the dose of heart and humanity that it brings to the audience.

So, grab a cold one, tune up your singing voice and help celebrate the yuletide season a bit early this year as we make a triumphant return to the trailer park.

Anyone interested in auditioning should prepare a modern country song or something that shows your range but no epics like Phantom, Le Miz – we’re just not that sophisticated.

Auditioners’ should be prepared for a small dance audition and a cold reading from the script.
