A Doublewide, Texas Christmas - Opening Night

Dec 6, 2019

7:30pm - 9:30pm

Phoenix Theater, 1406 N Market Street, Monticello, IL, 61856

In this outrageously funny comedy, it’s Christmas-time in the newest—and tiniest—town in Texas. And it’s beginning to look a lot like trouble in Doublewide.

To make matters worse, Joveeta finds herself increasingly wary of the newest resident, ...more
