Most of you probably know exactly what show's theme song those lines above represent. But in case you don't, it's "The Beverly Hillbillies!"
That said, Theatre at the Center in Munster is gearing up for the world premiere of "The Beverly Hillbillies: The Musical," and NWI Communities will be hosting a Beverly Hillbillies lookalike contest in conjunction with the musical.
All Granny, Jed, Elly May and Jethro lookalikes from around the Region should email a photo to Celebrate@nwi.com along with your name and the town you live in by noon on July 10. All photos will be shared in a gallery on nwi.com, and a winner will be chosen for each character. All four winners will receive tickets to a performance of "The Beverly Hillbillies: The Musical," which runs from July 10 through Aug. 10.
