WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - City Stage is reviving one of its successful shows of the past: The Great American Trailer Park Musical.

The company first performed the comedy in 2008 and most of the original cast has returned.

The plot centers around Jeannie and Norbert Garstecki. He's a toll collector, and she's agoraphobic, meaning she's afraid to go outside.  She's been stuck in her trailer for 20 years.

Finally, Norbert's had enough and starts stepping out with stripper Pippi who recently moved in next door.

The show contains a Greek chorus of sorts, a trio who helps move the plot along and takes on other roles as necessary. There's also Pippi's magic marker huffing ex-boyfriend who terrorizes the trailer park.

The show uses country, pop and rock tunes to poke fun at Southern stereotypes.
