The problem is, she can’t hear or see him. The trouble begins when Mom invites a date for dinner.

In this hilarious, fast-paced comedy, the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas—four doublewides and a shed—are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them.

“…where life is double the fun, double the joy, and where audiences double over with laughter!”

 

The inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas—four doublewides and a shed—are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them. It’s not as if they don’t already have enough to deal with! But these friends, enemies, and neighbors realize they’ll have to work together to defeat the encroaching annexation if they—and their way of life— have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by “the big guys.” The rollicking mayhem of this flat-out funny Jones/Hope/Wooten comedy escalates as the residents attempt to secede from Texas, discover a traitor in their midst, and turn the tables in a surprising and side-splitting finale.

BIG ETHEL SATTERWHITE, (50-60’s) Female – No nonsense, ball-busting geriatric nurse at the Stairway to Heaven Retirement Village. Fed up with her mule-headed husband.

GEORGIA DEAN RUDD, (30’s-50’s) Female – Runs the local diner. Gregarious. Ball of fire. Natural comedic timing.

LARK BARKEN, (late teens to 20’s Female) – New to town. Like a lost puppy, needs a home.

NORWAYNE “BABY” CRUMPLER, (30’s-40’s) Male, Enthusiastic ‘good-ole-boy.’ Not necessarily the sharpest tool in the shed.

HAYWOOD SLOGGETT, (60’s–70’s) Male – Elderly, cranky neighbor. Has secrets.

JOVEETA CRUMPLER, (30’s-40’s) Female – Educated business professional. Vivacious daughter of Caprice, sister of “Baby.”

CAPRICE CRUMPLER, (Late 50’s-70’s) Female – Joveeta & Baby’s mama. Real partier. Acts half her age.

LOMAX TANNER, (30’s-40’s) Male – Slick new City Manager. Got job Joveeta should have had. Has secrets. Not to be trusted.

STARLA PUDNEY, (30-40’s) Female – The Mayor’s high-maintenance wife. Stylish.  Cameo Role only.

This is a very broad comedy with over-the-top characters. The ages listed for most of these characters are approximations and not set in stone, except as follows… Lark Barken must be significantly younger than the others. Haywood Sloggett’s age must be as shown, and Caprice must at least be old enough to be Joveeta and “Baby’s” mother.

Casting will be based on talent and compatibility. MEN auditioning for Norwayne: be aware that “Baby” spends much of the show in various stages and styles of women’s clothing. There is no compromise on that point. Also, you will need strong ankles for walking in heels (at least part of the time).
