My husband enjoys the old western shows and he got a laugh out of this show. I was not too impressed. It was hard to hear and the story line was lacking. I agree with a previous poster that you would expect more since this...More

Goodness this was shockingly bad but could have been so good. Maybe its the end of the summer so they are winding down. It seemed more like the ‘actors’ were having private jokes between themselves than a show.

Yes, it is hokey and yes it has long introductions, but the eyes and smiles of my grandson made this very worthwhile. I recommend paying the $2pp for the seats as you get close to the action and one of the gunslingers even came up...More

After the long winded introduction of thanking all the sponsors. The show starts. Terrible sound quality, you can only hear a few words mixed in with feedback. A mish mash of recognizable characters from the west with no plot. Poor acting right outside the Irma...More

One would think that as this is done daily, the actors could remember their lines. Maybe ad libbing is encouraged. But this was just awful. Luckily you can grab a table at the bar on the patio to watch and enjoy yourself there while you...More
