"Caught this show tonight, and it was hilarious! Highest marks to the high energy cast! What fun! Brassy and sassy to the max - perfect show for summer time! I will never see a better song about "Road Kill" for the rest of my days!

 - anonymous audience card

On the surface this is a joyous, hilarious, and sometimes dirty piece of theater, but dig a little deeper and you find real people with real problems. Real people who hurt, love, fight, forgive, and forget. Looking past the glossy façade, it is a story about people who press on to overcome all obstacles. They take pride in themselves, their town, and their relationships in spite of less-than-ideal conditions. This story is about rising above impulses, mistakes, and even surroundings to create a future anyone can believe in despite our battered pasts. Without fail, every single one will in their way “make like a nail, and press on.” And that’s all we really want in life, isn’t it? To be able to take hits with grace and seize life by the reins, one punch line at a time.
