Melodrama



Presented by Niagara Services, Mark & Debbie Potaczala

Whoop-i-e-e-ee! Hold on, ’pawdners,’ get ready for the a rip-snortin’,
rootin’-tootin’ musical spoof, “Wagon Wheels of the Old West.” Sit back in
the air conditioned comfort of the Taft High Auditorium and get to know our
stars; the trailblazin’ hero, Chuck Wagon, the sweet heroine, Candy Cane
and the villainous crooked card dealer, Smiling Slade Claggett.

It all starts when the wagon train breaks down at Whistling Skull Rock,
outside the tiny town of Vinegar Bottle. The wagon train promptly gets
robbed by the mysterious outlaw known as ’The Snake.’ Through a crazy
twist of events, Chuck is accused of being the bandit. Proving his innocence
isn’t easy... but how he goes about it is a hoot! This outrageous community
performance promises a goofy stable of hilarious characters, a crazy twist in
the plot, a nutty mix of mirth, melody, action and a laugh-a-minute.
Sensational tunes include the rousing ’True Blue,’ the spirited ’El Fandango,’
’Low Noon Shootout,’ ’A New Broom Sweeps Clean’ and the haunting
’Ballad of the Hanging Tree.’ That’s what happens when those wacky
wagon wheels went rollin’ west!
