The Great American Trailer Park Musical is a tongue-in-cheek, rockabilly romp filled with strip clubs, hysterical pregnancies, and dreams of the Ice Capades. Men collude in death-row hijinks and find love in the bottom of tall-boy beer cans. Women use a whole lot of hairspray while chain-smoking Camels and opening boxes of donuts with their jewel-encrusted, manicured finger nails. We’re talkin’ trashy – trailer trashy. (
