‘Honky Tonk’ Angels at Meadow Brook Theatre

Country hit-filled musical runs April 26 through May 21, 2023, on the campus of Oakland University.

Country hits like “Stand By Your Man,” “9 to 5” and “Harper Valley PTA” tell the tale of three gutsy gals who follow their dreams of being country music stars. They may come from different backgrounds, but all roads to stardom lead to Nashville.

Honky Tonk Angels, by Ted Swindley, runs from April 26 through May 21, 2023, at Meadow Brook Theatre on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester Hills.

“There are more than 30 country hits in this show,” says Travis W. Walter, MBT artistic director. “And our three “angels” are such great actors. Our audiences are going to love this.”
