[ARCHIVED] Fun February Events in Garland!

Fun February Events in Garland

Hankerin Hillbillies


Hankerin' Hillbillies

Presented by CORP

Feb. 5-6

Plaza Theatre, 521 W. State St.

Pa Herford loves his five daughters, but there are days he wonders if he should have just raised puppies!  All the girls up in the hills are suffering from what Pa calls The Hankerin,’ for they all want to get hitched — and Any Ol’ Man’ll Do, as they sing in hillbilly harmony.  The only exception is Charlemaine, who only loves her books. But everything changes when government man Marcus Slidell shows up to buy land from the Herfords. For Charlie, it’s love at first sight. Marcus, on the other hand, is all business.  Unfortunately, the land he wants to purchase is the same plot that the Herfords and the Guernseys have been feuding over for decades.  While Marcus tries to figure out what to do, Charlie figures she has to find some way to catch Marcus’s eye, so she has Widder Perkins, The Black Widder, fix her up a love potion. Whooo-eee!  After that, things really go crazy!
