Armadillo Acres, a trailer park in Starke, Florida, has a new tenant. Pippi has arrived in North Florida’s most exclusive mobile home community and there is trouble brewing. When Pippi comes between Jeanne, who is an avid fan of Dr. Phil and in the throes of agoraphobia and her husband, Norbert Garstecki, a tollbooth collector, bleached roots might just get ripped out. Talking Broadway says, ” This wheel spinning, mud-splattering good time of a show is the theatrical equivalent of a musical bag of Doritos. You can’t get enough.”
