The Great American Trailer Park Musical
April 20th - May 6th
Music and Lyrics by David Nehls
Come to This Side of the Tracks, Where Every Trailer Has its Story
Hitch your trailers and haul on down to the Aurora Fox Studio Theatre this Spring to see the most beautifully trashy country rock musical ever written. Brought to you by Denver's own David Nehls, The Great American Trailer Park Musical perfectly blends agoraphobia, adultery, spray cheese, road kill, hysterical pregnancy, kleptomania, flan and disco. When Pippi, a stripper on the run, comes between Dr. Phil-loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her toll-collector husband, neighbors Betty, Lin and Pickles team up to save their friend's marriage.
"So excited about THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL coming back to Denver!! It's been 5 years since the denizens of Armadillo Acres have kicked up their heels in the Mile High City, so it's about damn time they returned, and all in a new production and new energy with Ignite Theatre at the helm. Come on down to the Fox and have a blast!" ---David Nehls
