Footlighters Inc. auditions for THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK CHRISTMAS MUSICAL
It’s holiday time down in Armadillo Acres (North Florida’s premier mobile-living community), and everyone’s filled with warmth and beer. But when a freak bout of amnesia strikes the trailer park Scrooge, neighborly love is put to the test. Be on hand as Betty, Lin, and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park musical! This companion to the original GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL is just as much of a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time-—but with tinsel and Keg Nog.

**The roles of BETTY, LIN, and PICKLES have been precast**
- DARLENE SEWARD – late 20s to early 30s. Darlene is a year-round “Scrooge.” She hates everybody and everything all the time and isn’t afraid to show it. But underneath her hard exterior is a wounded girl who once believed in true love and Christmas magic. That ended when a terrible accident happened one icy Christmas Eve in another place, another time. But Darlene won’t even have to leave the trailer park to get jolted out of her anger and start believing in things again, because Armadillo Acres’ heavy-handed use of Christmas lights bring extra-special excess voltage. Mezzo Soprano with a strong belt voice.
- RUFUS JETER – Late 20s to early 30s. Rufus is best described as a redneck stud muffin with a heart of gold. Well-liked around the trailer park, he spends most of his downtime fashioning “art” out of found objects. He’ll finish off a six-pack as fast as the next guy, but the next guy won’t see the artistic potential in the empties that Rufus can. It will take him by surprise when this unique ability extends to his grumpy neighbor Darlene- a woman he usually refer to in words that would land most people on Santa’s “other” list. Baritone.
- JACKSON “JACKIE” BOUDREAUX — 40 to 50 something. Jackie is a self-made man and an all-American success story. He took a simple idea and turned it into a thriving local “breastaurant” chain. Unapologetically capitalistic, Jackie doesn’t discriminate – money is money no matter whose pocket it’s comin’ out of. But Jackie plays to win and he has a possessive side. This comes out when he returns from a business trip to find his girlfriend acting completely different person altogether. Baritone
