The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical

It’s an all-new adventure for Betty, Lin and the other residents of Armadillo Acres in The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, commissioned by Stages Repertory Theatre as a follow-up to the company’s successful run of The Great American Trailer Park Musical in 2006. Working with director Kenn McLaughlin to mount this world premiere, creators Betsy Kelso (book) and David Nehis (lyrics and music) have been in residence at Stage throughout the rehearsal process. <

Filled with the cheer of the season – and more than a little beer – the trailer park regulars and their new neighbors stumble their way through the holidays. Susan Koozin, a veteran of the two previous Trailer Park productions at Stages, appears as Betty, Carolyn Johnson as Lin and Ivy Castle as new neighbor Pickles.
