It is the late 1970s, and a brothel has been operating outside of fictional Gilbert, Texas, for more than a century. While taking care of her girls, the proprietor Miss Mona Stangley is also on good terms with the local sheriff, Ed Earl Dodd. When crusading television reporter Melvin P. Thorpe decides to make the illegal activity an issue, political ramifications cause the place to be closed down. Starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds, the film adaptation’s country icons threw Whorehouse into a whirlwind of fame and glamour, taking the story from one of a ‘Lil' Ole Bitty Pissant Country Place' to a Hollywood phenomenon.

The show weaves all elements of country music, from big ensemble Western Swings such as ’20 Fans’ to the Classic country tones of ‘Doatsey Mae.’ With a storyline that pulls at the heartstrings full of hard up characters far from a fairy tale, and country stereotypes in all elements that get your feet box-stepping in your saddle, Whorehouse promises to take you on an emotional ride that’ll have you wanting to leap from your seat and onto the stage!
