The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

Sunday, April 7, 2019 - 7:30pm until 9:30pm

This musical is based on a story by King that was inspired by the real-life Chicken Ranch in La Grange, Texas. It is the late 1970s, and a brothel has been operating outside of fictional Gilbert, Texas (subbing for real locale La Grange) for more than a century. It is under the proprietorship of Miss Mona Stangley, having been left to her by the original owner. While taking care of her girls, she is also on good terms with the local sheriff, Ed Earl Dodd. When crusading television reporter Melvin P. Thorpe (based on real-life Houston news personality Marvin Zindler) decides to make the illegal activity an issue, political ramifications cause the place to be closed down. Adults: $15, Senior/Students: $10, Children 5 and under: $5. Tickets available at Lancaster County Council of the Arts, online here  (additional $3 fee applied) or at the door until sold out. Based on a book by Texas author Larry L. King and Peter Masterson. Music and lyrics by Carol Hall. For more details about this event, please visit the website here.
