Let us take you back to the 1870’s wild west, to the frontier town of Messina and the saloon bar of Leonato. The menfolk (Don Pedro, Claudio and Benedick) play cowboys returning from one of many territory wars fought against native-American tribes. The ladies (Beatrice, Margaret and Ursula), play showgirls working in the saloon. And looking after law and order, are Sheriff Dogberry and his trusty side kick Deputy Verges.
The play features a mix of great comedy, live music and some classic western tunes that everyone will know and enjoy.
