SPRING, TX – Old West Melodrama is preparing to unveil its next family friendly dinner show – a tale complete with a search for gold, a gun-fighting grandmother and saloon shenanigans.
“A Golden Fleecing” opens on Friday, Feb. 12 and performances continue Friday and Saturday evenings through Feb. 27.
The story begins with Sarah Sweetwater, who has inherited Cactus Bob’s Saloon in the ghost town of Elbow’s Bend. She plans to open her own Sarsaparilla Saloon and Bridal Shoppe with the help of hero Stanley Stoutheart.
“But the villainous Sly Scavenger and his accomplice Miss Twinkle Toes pose a threat to our leading lady’s dreams,” producer Jeannine Cole said. “The duo has their sights set on Cactus Bob’s lost gold mine.”
Professional gunfighter Big Bad Granny joins them – and the three attempt to do away with Sarah.
“The plot thickens – and then Tumbleweed, the town’s only permanent resident who also serves as both constable and judge, gets involved,” Cole said.
The show, presented by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Services in Englewood, Colorado, will be held at Puffabelly’s Depot Restaurant in Old Town Spring, with dinner
starting at 7 p.m. The melodrama begins at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for children and seniors and $17 to $18 for VIP seating.
“It’s a traditional interactive melodrama dinner experience with boos, hisses and popcorn-throwing welcomed,” Cole said.
Old West Melodrama, stationed at 100 Main Street in Old Town Spring, is the only
performing group in the greater Houston area that offers melodramas and murder mystery
dinner shows year round. The troupe, founded by Joe Cole, is comprised of experienced actors and performers who enjoy interacting with the audience.
