WHEN: Friday,  March 6th at 7:00 p.m.

WHERE: Annawan High School Gym

TICKETS: Adults-$7; Students K-12-$5; Pre-K and under– free


Woe falls upon Chuck Wagon’s wagon train, stranded in the notorious Whistling Skull Rock outside the tiny town of Vinegar Bottle, famed for its “I’m O.K. You’re O.K. Corral” and crawling with villains and bandits!  This fast-paced spoof of the Old West is filled with a goofy stable of hilarious characters:  our trailblazin’ hero, Chuck Wagon; our sweet heroine, Candy Cane; and the villainous crooked card dealer, Smiling Slade Clagget.  The wagon train gets robbed by the mysterious outlaw known as “The Snake,” but Chuck is accused of being the bandit through a crazy plot twist.  Proving his innocence isn’t easy…  but it is a hoot!  Who can forget the host of other characters that add extra spice to this wild romp?  There’s Wild Bill Hiccup, the Hamm sisters (Virginia and Glazed), fascinating Señorita Juanita and Clagget’s evil ally, Sue Flay.  Toss in an election for the town mayor, an old Spanish land grant and some Western entertainment.
