About the show

Playlight Theatre Company presents this spoof of turn-of-the-20th-century melodramas, set against the backdrop of the Old West. More…

Crusted custard: the pies are missin'! In Skunk Valley, Ma and Pa Baker’s livelihood is threatened when the evil Vincent Von Villenueva plots to take over the town starting with their pie shop. Can Chicken Farmer John save the old couple from his dastardly deeds, keep the town from becoming a rootin’-tootin’ saloon destination, and still prove his honor to the lovely shop girl? This comic adventure—complete with a dashing hero, a mustache-twirling villain, and a slew of wacky characters—is as American as...well, you know. He prepared to boo and cheer! Best for ages 6 and up.
