About the play

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. They have to work together to protect their way of life – even if that means seceding from the Lone Star state and dealing with a traitor in their ranks. A cast of colorful characters makes this an hysterical comedy.

Auditions: 

Monday February 13:  6:30pm – 8:30pm. Stageworks Theatre.

Characters listed below. Digital copy of the script available by requesting from Karen Buesing.
