The Great American Trailer Park Musical, presented by Lyric Stage, opens Friday for a month-long run. The musical is their first ever production in the new Lyric Stage Studio space in Dallas Design District.

Described as “South Park meets Desperate Housewives” by the New York Sun, the warmhearted musical comedy follows Pippi, a stripper on the run. She’s the new tenant at Armadillo Acres—Florida’s most exclusive trailer park. When she comes between agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband, storm clouds gather and hilarity ensues. The show is rated R for strong adult language and sexual content, suitable for age 18 and above.

Trailer Park Food & Trash Can Punch

This production includes a new food element never seen before at a Lyric Stage production. The grill will be lit and the Lyric Stage team will serve up chili dogs, hamburgers, and Frito pie. Top it all off with Trash Can Punch, served in a souvenir cup for a truly immersive, delicious “Trailer Park” experience.

Show times are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 pm. All performances will be held at the Lyric Stage Studio Space in the Design District (1170 Quaker Street). General admission tickets are available for $50. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling the box office at 214-871-5000.
