THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS

This Much Fun Just Couldn't Be Legal.

This happy go lucky view of small town vice and statewide political side-stepping is the high-spirited true tale of Miss Mona and the gold-hearted shady ladies of the famed Chicken Ranch, who try to foil an evangelistic television commentator's plan to shut down the Ranch and its evil ways. Get ready for loud-n-rowdy laughs and boot stompin' tunes like "Hard Candy Christmas" and "The Sidestep".

Opens: July 26, 2018

Closes: August 4, 2018

Location: Marjorie Lyons Playhouse
