CHARACTERS:

Marshal Luke Stephens – (Male, 21-45 years old) Marshal Stephens is a straight arrow in a wacky world of crazy Wild West characters. A strong, friendly man-about-town, he’s the man in charge of his not-so-smart deputy protecting their fair city from bad guys who have just strolled into town.  (This character is responsible for setting the pace of the show and must be able to speak in front of and capture the attention of large crowds and audiences.)

 

Deputy Leon – (Male, 21-40 years old) This Deputy may not be the best at his job, but he sure is the funniest!  After convincing the Marshal to switch jobs with him for the day, a couple of rotten bad guys come into town and put Leon’s courage to the test.  (This role requires a character actor capable of high energy and excellent comedic timing.)

 

Slade – (Male, 21-40 years old) New to town, he doesn’t take kindly to Deputy Leon’s antics. With his partner by his side, he resorts to a gunfight to take down the Marshal and Deputy.  (This role REQUIRES A 10-12ft HIGH FALL)

 

Sidesaddle – (Male, 21-40 years old) Sidekick to Slade, this tough desperado won’t take any funny business from anyone. He’s in the thick of the action when the big shootout goes down.
