The Show Synopsis
The Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum Texas – Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette – are up against the clock as they frantically attempt to produce the ultimate high school reunion before the old building is demolished. But they’ve got a bushel of obstacles to overcome before they can pull off a miracle. From an octogenarian love triangle to a malevolent hand puppet, Guacamole Queens is a side-splittingly hilarious farce from start to finish!
The Last Round-Up of the Guacamole Queens is the third and final comedy in the Verdeen Cousins Texas Trilogy that began with The Red Velvet Cake War and continued with Rex’s Exes. The script is written by the team of Jones-Hope-Wooten Comedies. Find the full show description here: www.dramatists.com/cgi-bin/db/single.asp?key=5059
