A Must See
Jul. 2021 • Family
Excellent show. The actors were hilarious and they interacted with the crowd very well. Highly recommended. Show starts at 8pm. Get tickets day before and be in line at entrance as early as possible. I was first in line at 7:15pm and sat in 1st row.

Fantastic and entertaining re-creation of historic gold rush era life on the frontier. The Trial of Jack McCall exceeded my expectations. Expect crowd interaction.

We viewed the beginning from the shooting at saloon#10 then the capture out front and then the trial. It was entertaining, engaging and they had the audience participation which added even more entertainment! They had kids be a part of the jury. This was a blast for The whole family, It is a must for a complete Deadwood family experience!

Two aces and two eights are not enough! Great performances
Jun. 2021
We watched the first part of the evening saga, from Wild Bill dealing cards, Jack McCall's shooting of Bill, to McCall's capture on Main street. We did miss Jack's trial.
We loved the skits and performances including the interaction with the crowd. Bill's card playing companions were kids from the audience. The #10 Saloon really bought the saga to life. The show is perfect to reflect the Deadwood story and mystic of Wild Bill and characters.

This is a must see if you go to Deadwood. Went with my wife and two grown children and we laughed through the entire show. The actors were great and you can tell they love their work. The show is kid friendly and the audience is encouraged to participate. We would see it again.

FUN!
Jun. 2021
Me and my sister wanted to experience the stagecoach ride but the temperature the day we stopped in was nearly 100 degrees and for the safety of the horses rides were not being offered. Completely understandable! We returned the next morning only to be entertained by “the sisters”! No, not sisters in the religious sense, but two siblings who were so darn funny that I just had to mention them! They helped us get a seat on the stagecoach and the ride was great fun. We are still chuckling over the sisters.......maybe it’s because they remind us of an older version of ourselves, I don’t know.......but they unknowingly provided a little extra something to our visit!

Ya gotta go
Jun. 2021
Prepare yourself for dad jokes, silly puns, audience participation, old fashioned sexism, and generally a lot of laughter. Our teenage girls thought this was hysterical. tip: hustle from the saloon to get a good seat. If you don't want to hustle, you can just skip the saloon and stand in line by the trial theatre.

Thank you so much for your great review of the Trial of Jack McCall. The Deadwood Alive actors work hard to entertain Deadwood's visitors on the street, as well as at the Trial. Good recommendation to hustle to get a good seat. Up front is a blast!

Stagecoach Ride
May 2021 • Couples
We had seen the shootouts and the trial before. Those are a definite must see when you are in Deadwood. But this time we did the stagecoach ride on Main Street. This is a must do also. You learn about the history of the stagecoach and have a small feel for what people went through back in the day. It was a fun time on it.
