Lil Abner Information

About the Show:

The musical Li'l Abner is based on the classic comic strip by Al Capp that ran for a whopping 43 years, from 1934 to 1977. The strip focused on a family of hillbillies in the dirt-poor town of Dogpatch, Kentucky and their interaction with the colorful characters around them. It is widely regarded as a funny and satirical publication that has had a deep impact on American culture. A main plot point of the musical, Sadie Hawkins Day, was actually first seen in the comic strip and then popularly adopted by many communities as a pseudo-holiday. Originally debuting on Broadway on November 15, 1956, the musical ran for an impressive 693 performances. The original cast included such familiar names as Tina Louise (Ginger on Gilligan's Island), Julie Newmar (Catwoman in the Batman television series), and Charlotte Rae (Edna Garrett on Diff'rent Strokes and later The Facts of Life). Order your Li'l Abner tickets today to enjoy the quirky story and such songs as "If I Had My Druthers," "I'm Past My Prime," and "Namely You."

Plot Synopsis:

The backward, hillbilly town of Dogpatch is set to be transformed into a nuclear testing area after being declared the "most unnecessary town" in the USA. Meanwhile, the special tonic that local man Li'l Abner has been fed by his mother all his life is revealed to be a serum that makes men handsome and sturdy but also makes them uninterested in and oblivious to romance. Still, the lonely Daisy Mae has her eyes set on the simple yet charming bachelor. She plans to win his hand in marriage at the annual Sadie Hawkins Day race, but she is not alone. Appassionata von Climax brings in reinforcements to rig the contest, and Daisy Mae does the same. Simultaneously, the men undergo an experimental procedure that makes them all handsome yet uninterested in women, just like Li'l Abner. And Pappy Yokum makes the surprising discovery of a plaque that declares the town founder, Confederate General Jubilation T. Cornpone, a hero of the Republic since his profound incompetence led his own army to a crushing defeat. Could the town be saved, and can Daisy Mae thwart her rival's plans and finally land her man?
