The Lake Wales Little Theatre production of Single Wide: The Musical opens Friday, Jan. 10 for a three weekend run.
The play is about Katy, a third generation single mother who doesn't let the fact that she lives in a tiny trailer in an even tinier trailer park, stop her from having enormous dreams for herself and her 10-year-old son. Single Wide is a story of challenge, determination, grit and hope, all played out to a toe-tapping country-pop score.
"The entire cast, crew, and I are all very excited to be a part of a show that has never been performed in Florida and we hope that the audience enjoys the show," said Director Rob Fritz.
A drama teacher at Winter Haven High School, Fritz said several of the cast and crew are former students, and "it's been fun to work with them on this type of show in a different environment.
The show also features three members of the Murren family, Holly and her children Natalie and Remy, no strangers to the Lake Wales Little Theatre stage. Other cast members include: Ansley Beach, Timothy Anderson, Madisen Rivera, Ben Santos and Jensen Brushwood.
Fritz's teenage daughter Holly is stage manager and other volunteers include Genesis Rosado and Katie Higginbotham as the running crew, Terry Higginbotham and Cassie Higginbotham handling lights and Mike Baccus and David Williams handling sound.
The play runs from Jan. 10-26 with performances at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. The intimate 140-seat theater is located at 411 N. 3rd St.
Tickets for this production are $20 for adults and $14 for those 18 and under. They are available at the theater box office, which is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesdays and up to an hour before the shows, if available.
