It’s a great event to bring your children and show them a cultural and historical piece from US History. The show is similar to Buffalo Bill and will take place from 8 am – PM on Saturday April 2, 2011. The show is also priced quite fairly at $6.00 per vehicle. There will also be live music! The show will present Living History, Literary & Dramatic Adventure, Political Satire Information, & Wit!
The Producers of the show,Code of the West Old West Repertory Company of California have doing this since 2002. Their goal has been to collect talented kindred spirits to work in a close & committed troupe to provide dramatic and/or historically based plays in order to educate while entertaining. Every member is dedicated to the vision set before them of respect & loving appreciation of our ancestors.
Their offerings take you through California’s history as well as what really happened in Dodge City, Kansas; El Paso, Texas and several locations in Arizona. In addition to “true accounts” the troupe has taken liberty with cinematic creations as well as turning music & cowboy poetry into plays.Their members make special appearances of historical & whimsical characters in what they call: “Walk Through The Wild West” Characters out of history come to life. The members invite you into their lives wearing carefully chosen attire; as their stories are told, selected music plays to set the mood. The troupe promises “to leave the audience educated, entertained and with a memorable experience to take with them.”
