A Doublewide, Texas Christmas

Tehachapi Community Theatre Spotlight

The holiday season is here and what better way to enjoy the spirit of the season than helping the folks of Doublewide save their town? Tehachapi Community Theatre is excited to announce our holiday production of A Doublewide, Texas Christmas! In this laugh-out-loud comedy, it's Christmas time in Doublewide (the smallest town in Texas) and the holiday season is overshadowed as the town of Doublewide is being double-crossed! Their official incorporation papers are in jeopardy and the town needs to prove their legitimacy to the county. So, this group of eccentric Texans is going to battle! They hatch a plan to win this year's county-wide Battle of the Mangers competition with their Nativity At The Alamo entry. The play's main character, Mayor Joveeta Crumpler, has her hands full not only with saving her town, but a celebrity obsessed mother, a brother being bullied by a pack of wild raccoons, and Doublewide's newest resident who is fresh out of the local mental institution. What else could go wrong? This tale of Texans coming together to save their town will have you bursting with holiday cheer!
