The lovable Clampett family rides onto your stage for an evening of hillbilly hilarity. Starting in the Clampett's mountain cabin (a small set placed inside the larger set), the play follows them through the discovery of oil, their improbably invasion of hi-falutin' Beverly Hills society and the absurd adventures and ridiculous romances they encounter there. They and the people they meet in "Californy" provide challenging characterizations for your cast.

"The comedy "works" and the blocking is great."
Review by Donna Taylor, Bledsoe County High School, Pikeville, TN
"We put on two shows using students in grades 6-12. It was extremely well received by patrons ranging in age from preschool to the elderly. The play lasted seven minutes longer than it did in dress rehearsal because of the cast needing to wait for the laughter to stop!"
