SYNOPSIS & INFORMATION
Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) proudly presents THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL (TRAILER PARK), March 14 through April 12, 2014 at ETC, 2317 Mechanic Street, Galveston. Directed by Kim Mytelka with musical direction by Carol Daubert and choreographed by Jennifer Daugherty, TRAILER PARK is a laugh out loud musical full of heart.
Set in Starke, Florida, at the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park, TRAILER PARK tells the story of high-school sweethearts Norbert (Brandon del Castillo) and agoraphobic Jeannie (Robin Lusby Schaefer). Their nearly 20-year marriage is jeopardized when newcomer Pippi (Katie Harrison) comes to reside at Armadillo Acres. At the same time, Pippi’s jealous ex-boyfriend, Duke (Luther Chakurian), travels from Oklahoma City to Starke trying to find his runaway lover. Assisting the story along are Armadillo Acres residents Betty (Sandi Morgan), Linoleum “Lin” (Penny Rieger), and Donna “Pickles” (Hanna Harper).
TRAILER PARK is written by Betsy Kelso with music and lyrics by David Nehls. The score combines country blues, boogie-woogie, a little disco, and other musical styles. The authors never look down on the characters or trailer park lifestyle. Some of them may be under-educated or a bit lazy at times, but Kelso and Nehls have created generally sincere and lovable people.
Performances for this fun and rollicking musical are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm (March 14 – April 12). There are two Sunday matinees on March 23rd and March 30th beginning at 2:30pm. Tickets are $27.00 for adults and $22.00 for students and senior citizens.
