Auditions for THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL at Fountain Hills Theater announced for March 25

There’s a new tenant at Armadillo Acres—and she’s wreaking havoc all over Florida’s most exclusive trailer park. When Pippi, the stripper on the run, comes between the Dr. Phil–loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband—the storms begin to brew. Just a typical All-American musical odyssey through agoraphobia, adultery, hysterical pregnancy, strippers, electric chairs, flan, road kill, toll collecting, spray cheese, guns and disco.



Characters’ ages are not set in stone. All roles are open to all ethnicities unless otherwise specified. Actors should consider roles if they feel they can represent the age ranges listed.
Jeannie (30s-50s) — Married her high school sweetheart, Norbert, in a shotgun wedding at 17. She hasn’t left her trailer house in nearly 20 years, after a really bad perm distracted her and Norbert long enough for their 5-year-old to get kidnapped.

Norbert (30s-50s) — A rugged, former high school football star with a job as a highway toll collector who’s fed up with his agoraphobic wife. Sparks fly when he meets Pippi, a stripper at a local club, The Litterbox Show Palace.

Pippi (20s-30s) — Armadillo Acres’ newest resident, she’s a stripper on the run from her ex. She’s trying not to make bad choices — like coming between Norbert and Jeannie.

Duke (20s-30s) — Pippi’s marker-sniffing ex-boyfriend, who’s hellbent on finding her after she ran out on him in Oklahoma City without a word or a forwarding address. Mayhem could be his middle name.

The Girls: Betty (30s-50s), Lin (30s) and Pickles (late teens) — The bottle-blonde, Greek chorus-like trio that guides the narrative, playing various characters and genders while breaking the fourth wall at whim to air their own dirty laundry.
