CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Over at the Aurora Arts Theatre (5635 Everhart Rd.), the cast and crew of ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ have already opened to a string of sold-out performances.

This production is based on the true story of a legendary Texas brothel known as the Chicken Ranch, which operated from the 1840s to 1973. Protected by a friendly Sheriff and frequented by politicians, football teams and others, the Chicken Ranch thrived in the small town of Gilbert, Texas. Girls come from all over to work at the ranch and make a little extra cash. However, a crusading Houston radio commentator and his conservative audience eventually expose the Chicken Ranch, forcing it to shut its doors forever.

Tickets are still available for the August shows, which begin at 7:30 p.m. each Friday and Saturday, with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.

Get your tickets by calling (361) 851-9700 or visiting .
