To receive an invitation to the Presidential Inauguration is an honor, but Washington, DC will never be the same once the Goodin Family arrives for the festivities. The Foggy Valley Gang is back at LampLight Theatre this January with another humorous episode. The zany redneck crew will take their antics to the nation’s capitol via an invitation from family friend, Clementine Hogg, who is acting as Entertainment Coordinator for the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
Devastated by not being asked to sing for the inauguration, Mama Goodin is determined to have the Goodin Family Singers perform for the President. Boasting of having known the President-Elect in the past, Mama concocts a plan to have an audience with him despite the hyped security efforts of Special Agents Chrome and Magnum and the Secret Service team.
With the cooperation from F.B.I. Agent, Thelma “Goodin” Jones (Spoolie’s ex-wife), Clementine has access to the Inaugural Events. From the “Swearing In” and “Inaugural Address” to the “Presidential Procession,” elite ceremonial events turn into outlandish fiascos. Family pastor, Rev. Clyde, though unscheduled, feels led to pray for the nation at the “Inaugurual Prayer Service,” while daughter, Ura Goodin, eats her way into the very heart of the nation as she and her husband, Clovis, attend the “Congressional Luncheon.”
Family friends, Otis, Flo, and Luella, are along for the crazy ride along with sultry Aunt Cleopha and her pessimistic son, Nydifer. The Foggy Valley gang is thrilled to drive their brand new funeral hearse right through the “Inaugural Parade.” Things are about to go haywire as Mama breaks protocol and is resolved to accomplish her mission of having her family sing for the President of the United States… So help her, God.
