Li'l Abner in Kingsport

Weekend entertainment may include seeing Li'l Abner performed by students and directed by the Dobyns-Bennett Drama and Choral Department.

(I know someone there!)

Tickets are on sale now for the upcoming Dobyns-Bennett High School Drama and Choral Department presentation of Li’l Abner, an award-winning Broadway musical.

Performances will be held on Thursday, November 1 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, November 3 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, November 4 at 2 p.m.

Reserved seats are $10.00 and general admission seats are $8.00. The musical is under the direction of D-B Performing Arts Teachers Deborah Coram and Beverly Shuck.

Li’l Abner is a fun-filled, foot-stomping musical taken directly from the comics, laced with gentle satire, rib tickling humor and a host of brash, catchy tunes. Lively singing, dancing and acting by the talented cast will be featured in a setting that takes place somewhere in our own region of Appalachia.

For those unaware, here is the setting. Some big wheelers in Vegas are upset that nuclear testing in the Nevada desert is causing dust to fall on the gambling tables. So they convince the crooked congressman to move the testing of the A-bomb to Dogpatch in Appalachia. Why? Because nothing good can come out of Dogpatch. Our friends from Dogpatch need to prove everyone wrong.

Sound familiar?
