Houston Fringe Festival - Jim Loucks - Booger Red

Written and Performed by Jim Loucks, Directed and Developed by Lisa Chess, Produced by Deb Loucks, Set Design by Sibyl Wickersheimer, Sound Design by John Nobori

Booger Red survives a rough childhood to become a renowned Hellfire and Brimstone Southern Baptist preacher.
