When 17-year-old Elly May Clampett’s father, Jed, unexpectedly strikes it rich, he moves his family from the Ozarks to Beverly Hills, California. Suddenly torn from her pig-farmer fiancé, Lyle, the beautiful but naïve tomboy is thrown into a world of debutante balls, polo matches and people mainly concerned with their place in society. Nearly taken in by a couple of scheming ne’er-do-wells—including seductive bad boy Justin—Elly proves traditional country virtue triumphs over slick city vice. She even manages to teach the villains a lesson in mercy. Elly’s cantankerous Granny is there to put her two cents in, usually unsolicited. And cousin Jethro, a lovable galoot, comes to the rescue of a young L.A. damsel in distress. All while banker Millburn Drysdale and his faithful girl Friday, Jane Hathaway, do everything they can to keep Jed—and his millions—from leaving Beverly Hills. The Beverly Hillbillies, The Musical is a story about compassion and tolerance—with a little moonshine and Ozark stompin’ thrown in to spice it all up.

The lovable Clampett family rides onto your stage for an evening of hillbilly hilarity.
Starting in the Clampett's mountain cabin (a small set placed inside the larger set), the play follows them through the discovery of oil, their improbably invasion of hi-falutin' Beverly Hills society and the absurd adventures and ridiculous romances they encounter there. They and the people they meet in "Californy" provide challenging characterizations for your cast.

New York City, 1939. There's a mystery at Bailey's restaurant, one of Gotham's top dining establishments, and it's up to Katharine Hawks, the New York Herald-Tribune's Pulitzer Prize-winning ace reporter, to solve it! J. P. Thompson, editor of the struggling Herald-Tribune is desperately searching for a way to increase circulation.
Across town, Stewart Bailey is simultaneously mourning the death of his father and preparing for his imminent wedding to socialite golddigger Tiffany Vandervanden. Stewart has just inherited his father's restaurant, the success of which was built on its famous soup du jour. There's only one catch: Stewart's father took the recipe with him to the grave, and Stewart -- along with everyone else in the story -- winds up searching wildly for the missing recipe. Editor Thompson decides he, too, must have the secret recipe to solve his paper's circulation problems.
Winning songs, lightning-fast dialogue in the Tracy-Hepburn tradition, and a great plot are the delicious ingredients of this delightful tribute to 1930s screwball comedies.
