SIX SHOWS ONLY: CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS!


Just for fun: An interview with Grenadine

And a conversation with Gladys Finkelstein…


Haul out the holly, the ham hocks, and the hairspray, y’all: Running With Scissors is moseying back to the Everlasting Arms Motor Park for another helping of holiday hijinks in Grenadine McGunkle’s Double-Wide Christmas! Thanks to 2008’s persnickety holiday calendar, there are only six shows this season, and Grenadine will be on hiatus in 2009, so catch us while you can!

As the curtain opens, we find trailer park maven Grenadine McGunkle (Dorian Rush) putting the finishing touches on one of her famed Christmas Eve interfaith tailgate potluck extravaganzas—but of course, things never work out quite as Grenadine plans. Will she have time to finish her makeup before company arrives? Will Crystal and China ever achieve fame and fortune amid the backstabbing of Branson, Missouri? Who’s the father of Crystal’s baby? And who’s been sending everyone mystery gifts? Find out as Running With Scissors makes a mad dash for merriment this holiday season at One Eyed Jacks!

Grenadine McGunkle’s Double-Wide Christmas features new songs and several new characters, including:

Dorian Rush as Grenadine McGunkle, unofficial president of the Everlasting Arms Motor Park

Bob Edes, Jr. as Mailman Johnny Shoemake, who occasionally delivers the mail

Brad Caldwell as Punkin, a confirmed bachelor

Brian Peterson as Gladys Finkelstein, everyone’s favorite Jewish neighbor

Dwayne Sepcich as Daniel Finkelstein, a reality TV show producer and Gladys’ beloved son

Jack Long as Helen Highwater, a girl who should really know better

Lisa Picone & Ashley Ricord as Crystal & China, Grenadine’s cousins/step-sisters

Donald Lewis as Cooter Ball, mystery lover of one trailer park resident—but whom?

Elizabeth Pearce as Madge McGillicuddy, neighbor and accompanist

Grenadine McGunkle’s Double-Wide Christmas plays at 7pm on December 5, 6, 12, 13, 20, and 21 at One Eyed Jacks, 615 Toulouse Street, in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Tickets are $20 and can be reserved at NORunningWithScissors.com or 504 606 9903. (NOTE: the opening night performance on December 5 will be hosted by the Mystic Krewe of Satyricon.
