Fat Shirley's Trailer Park Opera

Dalton Little Theatre is proud to open our 2019-20 season with this crowd-pleaser, which last showed in Dalton to SOLD OUT audiences.

Fat Shirley's: A Trailer Park Opera

By Tom Brown and David Crawford

Directed by Tom Brown and Bob Smith, "Fat Shirley's: A Trailer Park Opera" explores the lives of trailer park residents in the aftermath of the death of their beloved landlady Fat Shirley. Not only do they have to cope with the sadness of Fat Shirley's loss but with the uncertainty of the trailer park's future. Fat Shirley's trailer park was a last resort for many of the tenants, many of whose lives are characterized by the hardships that often accompany poor decision making. The show features musical numbers like "Will There Be Trailer Parks in Gloryland?," "She's My Cousin - She's My Wife," "Muscadine Rag," "Hickies" and "Fat Shirley's Lament."
