The Atchison County Drama Club of ACCJSHS, is proud to present Li’l Abner November 17-19, 2017. The musical is based on the classic cartoon characters of Al Capp, with book by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank, music by Gene DePaul, and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. It is produced by special arrangement with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., New York.

It’s a typical day in Dogpatch, U.S.A., and the citizens are going about their daily activities and preparing for the Sadie Hawkins Day race. The show introduces us to familiar characters from the comic strip that ran in newspapers from 1934 to 1977 including Li’l Abner (Lane Scoggins), Daisy Mae (Hailey McConnaughey), Mammy (Karlie Parnell) and Pappy Yokum (Cameron Billings), Earthquake McGoon (Jeran Platt), Marryin’ Sam (Gabe Livingston), Mayor Dan’l Dawgmeat (Gage Koontz), and Available Jones (Keegan Lott), as well as several other Dogpatch wives, husbands and citizens. We also meet government agents, scientists and villains along the way -  General Bullmoose (Luke Miller), Appassionata Von Climax (Erin Hamilton), Dr. Finsdale (Mercedez Albright), Evil Eye Fleagle (Caleb Miller) and Senator Jack S. Phogbound (Levi Navinskey) to name a few – as the musical takes us on a journey to discover the fate of Dogpatch, the famed Sadie Hawkins Day Race and whether or not there will be a happy ending. The show features cameo appearances by USD 377 staff and alums Paul Courter, Austin Eckert, Paul English, Dr. Andrew Gaddis, Luke Lott, Dalton Minor, Wyatt Scoggins and Cy Wallisch.
