The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is set to storm the main stage at Renaissance Theatre this August! This musical tells the true story of a little Texas brothel known as the Chicken Ranch; the Chicken Ranch operated from the 1840s to 1973 when it was finally shut down by the efforts of a crusading Houston radio commentator, Melvin P. Thorpe and his conservative audience. In spite of the protection of the local sheriff, Miss Mona, the proprietress of the Chicken Ranch, is thrown out of town, along with all of her girls, even as Melvin P. Thorpe receives a commendation from the Governor for his services to the state of Texas. Some of the great numbers in this musical include "Hard Candy Christmas”, "There's Nothing Dirty Going On”, "I Will Alway's Love You," and, of course, "Texas Has a Whorehouse in It."

This is a fun play to watch with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Be forewarned: there is strong language (boy, can that sheriff swear!) and, of course, adult situations. Just sit back and enjoy the mayhem, you are sure to have a great time! Adults only please! Dinner Theatre’s are scheduled for Saturday, Aug 13 and Saturday, Aug 20 at 6pm. Dinner will be served downstairs in the Alpha room and then we will adjourn to the Main Stage for the show at 7:00pm. Dinner Tickets are $12 each and must be reserved by calling (256) 536-3117.
