Book & Lyrics by Laurie Flanigan Hegge
Music by Hiram Titus
Conceived by Perrin Post

Directed by Scott Ford

The Hormel Girls are a true treasure of Minnesota History, a regiment of 60 gorgeous women who made their way across the nation to sell Hormel products with a song and a smile. Many consider them one of our nation’s first symbols of the independent woman. This delightful musical, follows the adventures of J.C. Hormel’s all-girl sales squad as they charm their way across the country, evolving from a “G.I. Jill” Drum and Bugle Corps to the glamorous stars of a nationally syndicated radio show.
