‘A Doublewide Texas Christmas’ is this weekend


The Historic Hoosier Theater in Vevay will be filled with the Christmas spirit this weekend, as the hilarious play, “A Doublewide Texas Christmas” is presented.

The play will be performed tomorrow (Friday) night and also on Saturday night, both performances starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, and advance tickets are available at the Visitors Center, or at the theater box office before each performance. Tickets purchased at the box office are cash only.

If you’re looking for holiday cheer, this performance is sure to bring plenty of laughs.

In this outrageously funny comedy, it’s Christmastime 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 has to wrangle her celebrity-obsessed mother, her beleaguered brother who’s being bullied by a pack of vengeful raccoons, and her demoralized best friend 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. 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 performance, you’ll have doubled your Christmas spirit.
