BUNFIGHT AT THE OK CORRAL, written by Mike Hurst, directed by Muffin Hurst
Bunfight at the OK Corral is a spoof on the old movies from the Wild West, featuring semi-real characters, like Wirey Twerp, Wild Bill Hiccup, The Lone Stranger and more.
Our hero is the Dead End Kid, a silent movie star from the Hollywood golden era who he is sacked by the studio when his desire to be a “song and dance man” is no longer relevant. The Mayor of Softbed Springs has seen his performance on screen and mistakenly believes he is the tough cowboy who can rid his town of the evil Lucretia McEvil and her gang. The Dead End Kid is thrilled with what he believes to be a show-biz booking to slay the crowds out West! When the local retired Bunfighters explain he has his wires crossed, he is branded a coward, flees and is taken in by the local, indigenous Kickapoo tribe. Finally he realises he must face Lucretia in a duel to save the town and win the affection of Peach Melba.
The cast is made up of local youngsters aged 4 to 16, with boundless enthusiasm in a musical comedy for all ages to enjoy: you’ll be “yee-ha’ing” all the way home.
