You’ll want to sing along with “The Great American Trailer Park Musical,” a naughty, bawdy, mischievous and dysfunctional Florida community set to music.

Rockford University’s first play of the Spring 2017 semester starts its run Thursday, with 7:30 p.m. performances set for Feb. 23-25 and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Feb. 26. Performances will take place in Clark Arts Center’s Maddox Theatre on campus.

Professor of Performing Arts Jeff Hendry, who has been awarded Best Costume Design from Broadwayworld.com the past two years in a row, is directing the PG-13 production.

The musical is one of two plays on the lineup this semester for Rockford University’s public Forum Series. The other, raucous Feydeau farce “A Flea in Her Ear,” runs April 27-30.

Tickets for both plays are $9 for students and senior citizens, or $12 for general admission. Contact the Rockford University Box Office at 815-226-4100 or boxoffice@rockford.edu, or buy tickets online.
