SYNOPSIS
There’s a new tenant at Armadillo Acres—and she’s wreaking havoc all over Florida’s most exclusive trailer park. When Pippi, the stripper on the run, comes between the Dr. Phil–loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband—the storms begin to brew!

ROLES

Jeannie Garstecki
Original teen mom; living the perfect life in Armadillo Acres with her high school sweetheart, Norbert, and her new son until he was kidnapped in front of the Super Cuts while Jeannie lamented a particularly bad perm; this traumatic event turned her into an agoraphobic and she hasn’t left her trailer since; with her 20th Anniversary looming near she must be able to muster the courage to attend the Ice Capades or will stay inside while the man she loves drifts further and further away; mezzo with high belt.

Norbert Garstecki
Jeannie's lovable, toll collecting, past-his-glory high school football star husband; never stopped loving his wife ever since she tutored him in geometry back in high school but her agoraphobia is starting to strain their 20-year marriage; this leads Norbert to make some bad decisions while searching for some care and compassion outside his mobile home; high baritone with a country twang; high baritone with a country twang.

Pippi
Striking beauty with a great body and a taste for clothing that shows it off; a professional stripper who has gotten by on her looks and talents for dancing and petty theft; means no harm and is ready to stop making bad choices and start making changes; leaves her boyfriend and moves to the small town of Armadillo Acres to start over; mezzo with high belt; will require removal of clothing, on stage, down to bra and underwear.

Duke
Pippi’s obsessive, possessive, and excessive magic-marker-sniffing boyfriend; “ex”-boyfriend according to Pippi; with a questionable driving record and a membership at Costco; rock tenor.

Betty
One of “The Girls"; the Mother Hen of Armadillo Acres; Betty runs the leasing office and makes it her business to know everybody else's business; her no-nonsense attitude and straight talking makes her the leader of the pack and someone the other girls look to for friendship and advice; alto with belt; will be seeing both women and men for the role of Betty; for men, not looking for "Drag Queen" Betty; we are looking for "Wait, is that a man?" Betty; think Amazon Eve from American Horror Story: freak show; this is just a man living his life as a regular, trailer park woman; portrayal should be truthful, not campy; for women, play her as a woman, not a woman playing a man playing woman; the Transgender aspect will not come into play if the character is played by a woman; high baritone with a country twang.

Linoleum “Lin”
One of “The Girls"; so-named because her mother gave birth to her on the kitchen floor; has a husband on death row at the Florida State Prison; his fate is an electric chair that doesn’t work properly unless most of the town’s electricity is turned off so Lin watches everyone’s lights and appliances very closely in the hopes that she can keep the chair on the fritz; sometimes self-absorbed and sometimes has a smart mouth, she hints at a wild, rock-and-roll past and is the fiercest of “The Girls"; mid-range belt.

Donna “Pickles”
One of “The Girls"; a newlywed; called “Pickles” because she is perpetually hysterically pregnant—that is, she’s so convinced she should be pregnant she’s exhibiting symptoms; her husband is a lot fancier than she is, as he is from the big city of Jacksonville; his parents haven’t been very supportive of his marital choice, so Pickles is desperate to give her husband a family of his own—even if she has to fake it; the dimmest of “The Girls"; airy, sweet, and blissfully ignorant; will also play the role of Tina, Pippi's friend from back home; mezzo with mix.

SYNOPSIS
Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate.

As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

The dignified butler, Rogers is professional almost to a fault. He is polite and loves his wife Mrs. Rogers but harbors a secret they both share.

WILLIAM BLORE: Male, Middle Age
A thickset man, he is an ex-police officer who believes he is supposed to be protecting Mrs. Owen’s jewels from possible thieves. Practical, careful with little imagination. Despite his careful observations, he is constantly wrong at guessing which of the guest’s is the murderer.

GENERAL MACKENZIE: Male, Mid-Late 60s
An upright man, he has a gentle and tired face and was a general in World War I. Military mannerisms. Guilt-ridden, Mackenzie accepts the fate of the guests early in the play.

EMILY BRENT: Female, Middle Age
A tall, thin, spinster. She is suspicious of everyone and believes she is morally righteous. Brent never consciously feels any remorse for her past behavior and does not believe she will killed.

SIR LAWRENCE WARGRAVE: Male, Middle Age
He is a recently retired judge and has a stern, commanding presence. Highly intelligent, he is the one the rest of the guest’s turn to for leadership. He constantly watches the other guests and makes mental notes of their reactions and behaviors. Harbors a sinister secret.

DR ARMSTRONG: Male, Middle Age
A fussy, good looking, but tired man. Has a weak and gullible personality. Professional and successful but is unable to see beneath people’s exteriors.
