FARCE. Grab yourself a can of Aqua Net hairspray! There’s a hot new beauty craze that’s driving the men of Lost Creek mad. It’s the beehive hairdo, and the higher the hair, the better. Dixie, a beauty shop owner and a master of beehives, has been inundated with customers who are desperate for high hair. Eager to win the heart of Avis Crum—a 90-year-old womanizer who happens to be the only available bachelor in Lost Creek—Granny Rose and Wider Snipes decide to get themselves a beehive since “There ain’t nothin’more sexy to a man than a woman with high air.” Determined to become a beehive master herself, Linda Jean sets out to learn the art of the beehive by practicing on neighborhood scarecrows. In the meantime, a couple of city slickers arrive in Lost Creek looking to sign up organ donors. The hospitable folk of Lost Creek are more than willing to oblige. You see, they’ve been wanting to get rid of their organs for years in order to make way for the hottest “new” instrument to hit the region, the harmonica. This richly entertaining character-driven farce will charm audiences with its down-home humor and its eccentric and lovable cast of characters.
