Wild West Show Staged

The third production of the summer series at Hutton’s Hamlet in Oakdale is ‘The Wild, Wild, Wildest West’ and tickets for the musical comedy are now on sale.

Tickets can be purchased in the music store at 149 Church Ave., Oakdale, and performances are on Friday, July 5 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, July 6 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., in the chapel at the northeast corner of West G Street and South Church Avenue.

All are welcome to come enjoy the show.

Slick and wealthy Richard Coldheart must marry Polly Wanda Cracker to control the Cracker property. However, it’s Polly’s homely sister, Prunella, who wants to marry him. Meanwhile, our hero, Sheriff Wayne John, has his hands full surviving the hilarious antics of his well-meaning but not-too-bright Deputy Doowrong. When a bunch of villains, including Snydley Dastardly, Kid Kid, and Calamity Jan, attempt to take over Lower Humidity Chasm, chaos reigns. The mood of the Schizophrenic Kid is tipped off by whether he wears a white hat or a black hat. And there’s Blacker Bart, who’s even meaner than Black Bart. The show includes unforgettable Western tunes, such as the lively, bluegrass “Wild, Woolly and Full o’ Fleas,” the rockabilly “Citizens of Evil,” and the lovely ballad “It’s Always Darkest Before the Dawn.”
