Anytime Miki Robinson bops into the studio, we know there's a good show either coming or already at Dubuque's lovely Bell Tower Theater. This holiday season, the Bell Tower Theater is putting on a fun and festive play that proves to be memorable for its title alone.

A Doublewide, Texas Christmas begins its engagement at Bell Tower Theater on December 1st, 2023. It runs through December 17th, and tickets are a bargain at only $23 (and going fast to boot).

A Doublewide, Texas Christmas focuses on the tight-knit residents of a tiny town in Texas, who are desperately trying to save their town after being swindled by the county:

Somewhere in the Texas heartland, lies the brand new town of Doublewide – Population, 10.  It’s Christmas time, and it’s beginning to look a lot like trouble. Doublewide is being double crossed by the county and might lose their status as a town. Maybe if they win the countywide “Battle of The Mangers,” their Christmas will be saved. - per the pamphlet for A Doublewide Texas Christmas

The Bell Tower Theater is giving you multiple opportunities to catch this great show:
