Welcome to the trailer court
Here come the hillbillies of Hampton Court Trailer Park. Or, at least, that's what the TV producer wants you to see. In reality, Hampton Court is made up of loving, kind, caring people who look out for each other. But that just doesn't make good TV.

In Mitchell Christian's spring play, "Mobile Home, Sweet Home," by Pat Cook, the characters must fight to preserve their way of life. Hampton Court Trailer Park, run by Loff Duvall and his wife, May June, is really quite a nice place to live, said Char Glanzer, co-director of the show along with Jessica Baas.
Anne, who is practically engaged to the son of Loff and May June, wants to show the great place of Hampton Court to others by bringing in a reality TV show. But, unfortunately, Anne's producer has other plans. She thinks the show would do better if she "turns everyone into a bunch of hillbillies" and makes it a trailer trash show, Glanzer said. In the face of oddball characters and "silly little happenings" the community has to pull together like never before.
The show is a two-act comedy with a 15-minute intermission. Show length is roughly 75-80 minutes.
"Something that I think that the audience would enjoy about this show, is that I think that they will be able to relate with any of the characters and relax and enjoy a production that they can laugh with," Glanzer said.
Performances are at 6:30 p.m. today and Saturday at the Baas Auditorium at Mitchell Christian School. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and may be purchased at the door.
