Set in a Florida trailer park called Armadillo Acres, this musical puts a trashy, but comical, spin on Christmas cheer with lots of drama. But it’s the little things that cause trouble for these tenants, some of whom want to decorate for the holidays while others prefer a good ol’ ruckus. (Anita Overcash) $17 for previews Nov. 28-29; $26-$31 for other shows
