Extended: The Great American Trailer Park Musical Rolls On

Stages' oily, deep-fried summer production, The Great American Trailer Park Musical, which was supposed to end its run last Sunday, has been extended.

The musical, which our critic D.L. Groover called "a crass piece of paint-by-number", but also praised the cast and the direction back in June, will run through September 4.

The cartoonish, caricaturish musical tells the story of the tenants of Armadillo Acres, Florida's most exclusive trailer park. its original run at Stages started in July 2006 and ran through March 2007, and it remains the longest-running production in the company's history. No wonder Groover also called the play Stages' "cash cow."

7:30 p.m. Wednesdays & Thursdays; 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 3 p.m. Sundays. 3201 Allen Parkway. Tickets start at $23.
