SSHS Wildcat Theatre’s advanced theatre production cast will perform A Doublewide, Texas Christmas on Thursday December 13th at 7pm. Tickets are $3 or 3 cans of food to be donated to our local food bank.
In this outrageously funny comedy, it’s Christmas-time in the newest—and tiniest—town in Texas. And it’s beginning to look a lot like trouble in Doublewide. Not only are the trailer park residents dealing with the stress of the holiday season, but they’ve just discovered that Doublewide is being doubled-crossed by the County. With their official incorporation papers in jeopardy, this band of eccentric Texans throw themselves into taking on the “Big Guys.” Determined to bolster their legitimacy, they first set their sights on the County-wide “Battle of The Mangers” competition. They conspire to win this smackdown with their “Nativity At The Alamo” entry…by any means possible.
In addition to that shaky undertaking and trying almost single-handedly to keep the new town afloat, Mayor Joveeta Crumpler (senior Lucia Yanez) has to wrangle her celebrity-obsessed mother (sophomore Hannah Shultz), her beleaguered brother (senior Johnathan Johnson) who’s being bullied by a pack of vengeful raccoons, and her demoralized best friend (junior Rachel Bramlett) who’s at the end of her rope from dating every loser this side of the Rio Grande. To make matters worse, Joveeta finds herself increasingly wary of the newest resident, Patsy Price (sophomore Crystal Flores). Patsy, fresh out of the local mental institution, clearly has her own devious agenda and the County competition over in Fayro is just the place for her to settle an old score.
By the time this full-tilt rocket ride of lunacy climaxes in a what-else-can-go-wrong live television presentation, you’ll have doubled your Christmas spirit. So spend the Yuletide in Doublewide and let this hilarious Jones Hope Wooten Comedy make your Christmas merry and bright…because there’s no place like a good ol’ Texas-sized mobile home for the holidays!
Doublewide also features seniors Hagen Hunt, Tre Ransom, and Cody Queen. Sophomores Rorie Young and Caitlin Monaghen round out the cast.
