Welcome to one outrageous day at the Reel ‘Em Inn, the finest fishing lodge in the Ozarks. D.Gene Wilburn and his wife Wanelle play host to a wacky bunch of guests who slam every door they can find. Gangsters, cops and vicious critters collide in this Southern-fried farce. Set in Mayhew, Arkansas, this farce is sure to be a much needed fun return to the theatre for cast, crew and audience alike. Three-dimensional, but larger than life performances needed to bring this play to life. A great ensemble play, where the characters hide, lie, disguise themselves, cross-dress, and slam doors chasing one another, while trying to evade the critters and hungry varmints outdoors.
Actors should be comfortable with physical comedy and varying degrees of intimacy.

ALL AGE RANGES BELOW ARE FLEXIBLE depending on cohesiveness of cast.
|WANELLE WILBURN||40’s to 50’s – lead role – a determined “ball of fire” who is trying to rekindle the romance with her husband. Actor should be comfortable with being sensual.|
|D.GENE WILBURN||40’s to 50’s – lead role – a “beleaguered, good-hearted guy”, though a bit absent. Owner of the fishing lodge and husband to Wanelle, father to Ty. Actor should be comfortable having underwear exposed periodically.|
|JENNA SEALY||20’s to 30’s – good-sized supporting role – an artist whose patience is running out with Ty – once boyfriend and girlfriend, she is hoping he will return home.|
|MAXIE WILBURN SUGGS||50’s to 60’s – good-sized supporting role – a really fun and out-of-the-box role. Former law-enforcement, trying to regain her job, while protecting a gangster from danger. Described as “hearty” and “no-nonsense”.|
|CARMINE DeLUCA||40’s to 50’s – good-sized supporting role – a hilarious “jittery, wise-guy” from Chicago who is in the witness protection program. Dodging Sonny.|
