Wagon Wheels West
Hold on, "pawdners," for a rip-snortin’, rootin’-tootin’
musical spoof of the Old West. A wagon train breaks down at Whistling Skull
Rock, outside the tiny town of Vinegar Bottle (famed for its "I’m O.K.
You’re O.K. Corral"). The wagon train promptly gets robbed by the
mysterious outlaw known as "The Snake." Through a crazy twist in the
plot, the trailblazing’ hero, Chuck
accused of being the bandit. Proving his innocence isn’t easy ... but it is a
hoot! Who can forget the host of other characters that add extra spice to this
wild romp? There’s the sweet heroine, Candy
villainous crooked card dealer, Smiling
Slade Claggett, Wild Bill Hiccup, the dancing Hamm sisters (Virginia and
and Claggett’s evil ally, Sue
Flay. Toss in
an election for the town mayor, an old Spanish land grant, and some singin’
and dancin’. Then mix with mirth, melody, action and a laugh-a-minute pace and
you’ve got some idea of what happens when those wacky wagon wheels went rollin’
