Holiday hilarity in ‘A Doublewide, Texas Christmas’

The cast of “A Doublewide, Texas Christmas.”

In this hilarious, fast-paced comedy, the residents of one small trailer park are thrown for a loop when just before the holidays they discover they’re being double-crossed by the county. By the time this full-tilt story climaxes, you’ll have doubled your Christmas spirit.

Written by trio Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, “A Doublewide, Texas Christmas” is set in a Texas trailer park with neighbors banding together to compete in the county’s annual “Battle of the Manger Scenes” competition.

Directed by Paula Keenan, it’s a cast of nine, with six women and three men, playing the strange residents of this community, all of them dealing with the stress of the holidays. The characters are all so eccentric and funny.

The cast includes Kathleen Barney as Big Ethel Satterwhite, Les Williams as Haywood Sloggett, Kim Fisackerly as Patsy Price, Jay Terzis as Norwayne “Baby” Crumpler, Casey Cobb as Caprice Crumpler, Terry Libby as Joveeta Crumpler, Shelley Gothard as Lark Barken, Rhonda Brazina as Georgia Dean Rudd and Jeff Hoover as Nash Sloggett.
