Silverton School play set for March 13-15
The Silverton middle and high school students will present “The Wild, Wild, Wildest West or … how the west was dun!”
The play opens Thurday, March 13, at the Silverton School Performing Arts Center and runs through Saturday, March 13.
This musical melodrama is produced by special arrangement with the Pioneer Drama Service Inc. in Englewood, with the book by Christopher Gieschen and music and lyrics by Bill Francouer.
“The Wild, Wild, Wildest West” is a hilarious spoof of many of Hollywood’s Westerns. Set in the town of Low Humidity Chasm, this comedy features a large cast of cowboys, cowgirls, can-can girls, wealthy villains, bumbling deputies and strategizing ladies. 
The performance includes great songs and immense humor for the entire family.
“It wasn’t a hard decision to make when approached by several students and even a few adults to do some kind of production,” said director Amy Swonger. “A spring musical had been a dream for a couple years now and what better fit than a musical melodrama,” to bring theater back the students in Silverton.
Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under, students are free.
