The Honky Tonk Angels
(A Musical Comedy in Two Acts)
Written By Ted Swindley

Directed/Musical Direction By Danielle A. Flury-Downey

“Country Classics combine with a hilarious story about three good ole gals who follow their dreams to Nashville.” Songs include: Stand By Your Man, Coal Miner’s Daughter, 9 to 5, I Will Always Love You, and Harper Valley PTA.

3 Women (Ages can range from late teens to fifties):

Angela:  A Texas housewife, (30s to 50s) she has a great sense of humor and a fiercely independent streak.  She is an earth-mother comedienne.

Darlene:  A young woman, (late teens to early twenties) from the deep South.  She is pretty, and simple.  A woman who grew up in the coal mining town of West Virginia and the Mississippi Delta.

Sue Ellen:  A Los Angeles career woman (20s to 40s).  She is a “citified” country girl.  Smart, very attractive, sexy and frustrated.

Band Includes: Piano, Bass, Drums, Pedal Steel Guitar, Fiddle, and Lead/Rhythm Guitar

Chorus: There will be a small chorus of 4 or 5 women. (Ages late teens and older; all vocal ranges)
