The Great American Trailer Park Musical is Coming to the Oregon Cabaret Theatre
After its sold out run of The Spitfire Grill to launch its 2021 season, the Oregon Cabaret Theatre launches its second 2021 show, The Great American Trailer Park Musical on Thursday, 4/29.
There’s a new tenant at Armadillo Acres – and she’s wreaking havoc all over Florida’s most exclusive trailer park. When Pippi, a stripper on the run, comes between the Dr. Phil–loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband—the storms begin to brew.
Featuring an uptempo pop score, the musical contains irreverent comic songs like “This Side of the Tracks”, “Flushed Down the Pipes”, and “Storms A Brewin”.
“I think one thing we can all agree on, is that in the year 2021, we need to come together and share a good laugh,” says associate artistic director Galloway Stevens, who plays Norbert in the show. “I had the privilege of seeing it a couple of times in Florida and once in North Carolina and it is a crowd-pleasing, laugh-out-loud comedy.”
Artistic Director Valerie Rachelle plays queen of the trailer park Betty, Associate Artistic Director Galloway Stevens is unassuming tollbooth collector Norbert. Norbert is married to the agoraphobic Jeannie, played by Lauren Blair (The Odd Couple). Asha Brownie-Gordon (Beehive, Avenue Q) returns as Linoleum and is joined by Cabaret newcomers Preston Mead, who plays Duke, Katie Bullock as Pickles, and Bianca DiSarro as Pippi.
The Great American Trailer Park Musical contains coarse language, sexual situations, comic violence, and adult humor. Were it a movie it would be rated R.
