The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is directed by David Higgins with musical direction by Emma McGeorge and choreography by Kim Annette.

From the Director David Higgins- [Read in a full Texas drawl]
This hayer folks is the true… weeell; true ‘nough, story about a sweet little ole’ Texas Brothel (yup, that’s Texas with a capital ‘T’ and Brothel with a capital ‘Be seeing ya’ll whin ya’ll gitst hayer!’) that operated illegally from the 1840s till 1963. A traditional stomping ground for local boys, politicians, football teams and the good ole’ sheriff; the Chicken Ranch (as it was known) was an accepted part of the Texan landscape. Till the one day, when this here god-fearin’ no-good—son of a do-gooder TV feller, had to git up on that there TV-box, crusadin’ and singin’ up a stink-storm ‘bout how they were a reg’lar whorehouse, rart hayer in Texas!
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is based on a true story. It's filled with action, humour, brilliant characters, terrific dances, great songs and moments of heartfelt drama. It's a dynamic show that audiences love and we intend to make it a show you'll love to be a part of.
NOTE: The show contains strong language and sexual references. This is not a show for children.
