Additional Info

This fast paced Western parody enjoyed a sold out run Off Off Broadway. Rambles rides into town in time to help Widow Gruber save her farm from evil Judge McCoy. Then he is framed for murder and has to outride a posse led by a dangerous hired gun. Inspired by classic movie and television westerns, A Town Called Shame incorporates all the quintessential elements of the genre, but this fearsome posse is mounted on stick horses and the saloon singer looks suspiciously like a guy in a dress. Other twists include slow motion gun fights and a shoot out at Shifting Rocks (with actors under drop cloths). This cult hit is a sure fire crowd pleaser and almost as much fun to perform as it is to watch.
