Additional Info

It's Rodeo Weekend in the otherwise sleepy town of Indian Springs and everyone is in a state. This is doubly true of the Brison household as Mrs. Brison has overbooked her weekend guests. There are Boy Scouts, school teachers, spoiled darlings and - to everyone's surprise - a ghost! While the family and assembled guests frantically prepare to compete for the title of Rodeo Queen, practice their bull-roping skills and pursue one another, the spirit is busy wreaking havoc in revenge of an historic slight. This fast-paced comedy is chock full of laughs and thrills; and its Western flavor is a real plus for groups seeking something different from your run of the mill farce.
