I enjoyed this production due to the assortment of pop culture jokes, superb set dressing (which included 10 gnome statues) and costume design ( which included heavy metal band tees, flannel shirts, construction boots, jean cut offs and gaudy jewelry) , and standout performances by Kathryn Stewart- Hoffman and Amanda Vorce. Both ladies commanded a lot of attention with their dynamic and hilarious mannerisms and facial expressions. Amanda who played Lin gave this piece of advice at a tense moment," Make sure you have a six inch hunting knife strapped to your leg." Another funny yet tense moment was when Jeannie a lead character who is agoraphobic, emerged from her trailer with her newly hideously permed hair. In the midst of her angst her baby is kidnapped.
The live band accompanying this musical was a added treat as was the trailer park photographs in the theatre lobby and sculptures by Stacie Sabady.
