Li'l Abner

Li'l Abner

Presented by Newport Theatre Arts Center (NTAC) at Newport Theatre Arts Center

Music by Gene DePaul, lyrics by Johnny Mercer, book by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank
Based on the famous Al Capp comic strip, Li’l Abner is a spoof on both “hillbillies” and national politics, a musical and a funny paper sensation wildly popular in the 1950s. Memorable characters include Daisy Mae, considered an old maid at seventeen years, Abner’s pipe smoking parents Mammy and Pappy Yokum, the alluring Apassionata von Climax, Senator Fogbound and the always lovable Jubilation T. Cornpone, mayor of the town. Enjoy the Sadie Hawkins Day Race, the delightful music, the high spirits and high jinx of this crazy musical. Directed by Dimyana Pelev.
