Doublewide, Texas

The Monticello Theatre Association (MTA) will present Doublewide, Texas directed by Ted Nowlin on May 12, 18, 19 at 7:30 pm and May 13 and May 20th at 2:30 pm at their theatre located at 1406 N. Market St. in Monticello.  
 
Doublewide, TexasDoublewide, Texas is a hilarious, fast-paced comedy about the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas, made up of some of the state’s most colorful characters including Big Ethel Satterwhite (Tanya Williamson), Georgia Dean Rudd (Susan Sheahan), Lark Barken (Victoria Wolf) and the whole Crumpler family (Kelly Nowlin, Brad Collins, and Leslie Heath.) It’s one big happy life, except for Haywood Sloggett (Gil Yohnka), the curmudgeon from across the road, who loathes their “trailer-trash” ways. But these friends and foes will have to work together to defeat an encroaching annexation if they, and their way of life, have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by “the big guys.” Steve Wadleigh and Jami Gossett round out the cast as Lomax Tanner & Starla Pudney.

Doublewide, Texas is written by the same playwrights of Hallelujah Girls and ‘Til Beth Do Us Part.  Two of MTA’s audience and cast favorite productions. Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, collectively JONES HOPE WOOTEN, are known for their laugh-out-loud style and their strong female characters.

According to director Ted Nowlin, if you are a fan of past MTA comedies, this show will not disappoint. “The cast is working hard developing their characters and working together to make this show entertaining,” said Nowlin. “We know this is a busy time of year, and we’re hoping a comedy will entice people to take a break from their hectic schedules, support community theatre, and share some laughs.”

Tickets are available online at monticellotheatre.org and will also be available at the door.
