Synopsis

This engaging documentary chronicles a group of amateur actors living in religion- and football-obsessed small-town Alabama, who bond while producing “Skanks in a One Horse Town,” an original drag musical. “Skanks” follows the cast of amateur performers – some gay, some straight, and all unique – as they bond to form a family of sorts while creating the unconventional show in a conservative Southern city. This heartwarming film explores their humor and the meaning that theater has in their lives.
