January 24th - March 15th
Wasco at the turn of the century wasn't any more than a post office and a few hundred tumble weeds. And it was protected by one of the most humble and nicest men ever to be deputized by the U.S. Marshall, Johnny Wasco. But, when a freak tornado wisks Johnny away to the Wasco of 2014, he must muster the courage to convince the town that he's not only a stranger, but a "Legend". Making matters worse is evil tycoon, Sherman Shafter, who has come to town to rid it of the annual "Festival Of Roses". It's up to Johnny to not only save the town and the festival, but to also prove to everyone that he IS "The Wasco Kid". With a colorful cast of characters including the sweet, Debbie Do-Rightly; the sour, Mable Mylanta and the sinister Liza Low-N-Dirty, plus a rip-roaring soundtrack of melodrama favorites, this is one show you won't want to miss. This brand new melodrama was written and directed by our very own, Michael Prince.
