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 improbable 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.

Customer Reviews

"This was a fun and silly play. The kids enjoyed playing these roles, and our community loved it. We ended up with some of the biggest crowds we have ever had for a spring play. We 100% recommend this script!"
Review by Stephanie Heath, Camden HS Drama Club, Camden, N.Y.
"It was a fun show. Great characters that challenged my kids. Lots of cheesey jokes and lines. This was a perfect show for my first time directing. Audiences came to see the clampetts from the TV show and enjoyed our little spin on them. I highly recommend this show."
Review by Michael Stauffer, Seaman HS, Topeka, Kan.
"What a funny, funny script! The students and audiences loved it!"
Review by Julie Williams, Oelwein High School, Oelwein, IA
"Absolutely hilarious. Tough to match. The audience was constantly laughing. Our Jethro simply walked on stage and the audience fell in love with him."
Review by Jonathan Dyck, Landmark Collegiate, Landmark, MB
"The Beverly Hillbillies is great fun! The students love it because of the comedy. The parents love it because it is a show they grew up with."
Review by Karen Jaffe, Lake Zurich Middle School North, Lake Zurich, IL
"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!"
Review by Kaylene Erdahl, Lake Mills Community School, Lake Mills, Iowa
"This was the best play I have ever directed at my middle school. The audience loved it, the actors loved it, and I loved it. I'll be using it again!"
Review by Julia Ann King, Cedar Heights Junior High, Covington, Wash.

Review by Kim Fain,. Finneytown Middle School, Cincinnati, Ohio
"Hilarious! The lines capture the original show perfectly. This play was easy to produce and enjoyed by audiences of all ages!"
Review by Roselyn Schillerstrom, West Lyon Community Schools, Inwood, Iowa
"I was amazed at the response for Beverly Hillbillies! Our most successful show in 19 years. Great entertainment for everyone. Hilarious show! Adults loved to go back in time and laugh with the familiar characters. Nostalgia works!!"

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"It is important that you have a good Granny. My Granny stole the show. Someone who can take charge of the stage. Make sure to have a big mansion."
Tip by Michael Stauffer, Seaman HS, Topeka, Kan.
"We had a live band playing hillbilly music. It put the audience in a festive mood, clapping and having a good time."
