“Hollywood Hillbillies,” was written by Tim Kelley. The OMS production will be directed by the middle school’s drama director Terrie Kirkpatrick.
The play is set in present day. Some good-natured, Ozark hillbillies play host to visiting Hollywood relatives and others.
The laughs are abundant when the hillbilly cousins chase their relatives with skunks and bullfrogs, and try to engage the Hollywood people in down-home, mountain fun.
