Auditions will be held at the theatre at 319 North Wilkinson Road, Henrico. A Doublewide, Texas Christmas runs from November 30 through December 15, 2018.
It’s beginning to look a lot like trouble in our favorite community of 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 double-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.
