We close our season with our first ever musical comedy- a Wild West take on Wagner's operatic epic Ring Cycle. Five actors playing over thirty roles take us through three hilarious generations of two feuding Texas families in this Off-Broadway musical hit. A magical ring of gold has been causin' trouble for way too long and all heck is fixin' to break loose. Two sets of mismatched lovers meet on the day of their shotgun weddings, but before they can celebrate at a blow-out BBQ, they encounter lariat-spinning ladies, evil, narcoleptic dwarves and a synchronized swim team, among other oddities, as their quest for that troublesome ring unfolds with swinging music and rowdy humor.
