Dec. 1 - 6 The Warehouse Living Arts Center will present "A Doublewide Texas Christmas"

In this outrageously funny comedy, it’s Christmas-time in the newest—and tiniest—town in Texas. And it’s beginning to look a lot like trouble in Doublewide. Not only are the trailer park residents dealing with the stress of the holiday season, but they’ve just discovered that Doublewide is being double-crossed by the County. With their official incorporation papers in jeopardy, this band of eccentric Texans throw themselves into taking on the “Big Guys.” Determined to bolster their legitimacy, they first set their sights on the County-wide “Battle of The Mangers” competition. They conspire to win this smackdown with their “Nativity At the Alamo” entry…by any means possible.

Tickets are available now for Season Ticket holders and will go on sale to the public on Nov. 21.

Shows are Dec. 1, 2, 3 and 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 5 and 6 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Warehouse Living Arts Center which is located at 119 W. Sixth Ave. or by calling the Box Office at 903-872-5421 for more information visit www.thewlac.com.
