The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas!

In October 20015 we performed our  Anniversary show, the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.  It was a huge hit when we performed it in 2006 and many of the old cast have returned to recreate the fun.

Story 

It is the late 1970s, and a brothel has been operating outside of the town of Gilbert, Texas, for more than a century. It is under the proprietorship of Miss Mona Stangley, having been left to her by the original owner. While taking care of her girls, she is also on good terms with the local sheriff, Ed Earl Dodd. When crusading television reporter Melvin P. Thorpe decides to make the illegal activity an issue, political ramifications cause the place to be closed down.

Singing, dancing and whores! What more could you want....
