About the show...
With Music and Lyrics by David Nehls and Book by Betsy Kelso, "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" began its journey as a series of staged readings and workshops, followed by a sold-out run at The New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) in 2004, which led to the 2005 Off Broadway run produced by Jean Doumanian and Jeffrey Richards.
The original Off Broadway cast featured Marya Grandy (Linoleum), Linda Hart (Betty), Shuler Hensley (Norbert), Kaitlin Hopkins (Jeannie), Leslie Kritzer (Drama Desk Award Nomination for her role as Pickles), Orfeh (Pippi) and Wayne Wilcox (Duke).
The show has toured the U.S. and the U.K., played in Australia and has even been translated into French for a production in Montreal! Hundreds of regional productions have followed - from Fargo to Las Vegas to Nashville to Napa. In 2013, the Christmas-themed sequel opened in Houston, Texas - The Great American Trailer Park CHRISTMAS Musical, also by Nehls and Kelso.
