Lil' AbnerLil' Abner

By Norman Panama & Melvin Frank

Performed in the 2005-06 school year

Based on Al Capp's cartoon characters, Lil Abner is a "hillbilly nonsense" musical centered around the community of Dogpatch, U.S.A. In this town, drinking Kickapoo Joy Juice, fishing, and the Sadie Hawkins Day Dance are everyone's main concern. This is, of course, until the government conducts a study that deems Dogpatch to be an unnecessary place, to be evacuated so that the area can be used for atomic testing. The remainder of the action follows our main characters' attempts to show that Dogpatch is a "necessary" place after all, despite the interference of a determined General Bullmoose.
