STANDING ROOM ONLY presents LIL ABNER, a joyful musical based on the iconic, ironic comic strip by Al Capp, about an average American mountain boy, who leads the beloved, homespun citizens of Dogpatch, Kentucky, USA in their attempt to prove to the world that they are not an unnecessary place that would serve as an ideal choice for the next A-bomb Test. Besides Abner himself, the town and the show are populated by unforgettable characters, such as irascible Mammy and Pappy Yokum, greedy General Bullmoose, unstoppable Evil Eye Fleagle, thunderous Earthquake McGoon, stupendous Stupefying Jones, madcap Marryin Sam, and adorable Daisy Mae, not to mention an entire ensemble of Dogpatchers who will sing and dance their way into your hearts.
Featuring local favorites Dave Champagne, Kayla Geist, Rachel Martinez, Hans Molland, Ruthanne Chadwick, Marcela Martinez and Richard Frias.
Directed by Nancy Tribush Hillman, with Musical Direction by Claudia Simpson-Jones and Choreography by Rachel Martinez. Perfect for the entire family.
