A Little Panto On The Prairie

    by Rich Lock


Panto Script: 'A Little Panto On The Prairie' by Rich LockWelcome to the wild, wild west and the town of Windy Bottom, the setting for Rich Lock's new, original, pantomime.

Madame Moonshine runs the local saloon with her hapless barman, Tumbleweed. The evil sheriff, Cactus Jack, has plans to take over the saloon and turn it into a casino and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.

This involves hiring a couple of Mexican henchmen, Jose and Hose B to kidnap our heroine, Sandy, and keeping her as a threat in the old abandoned mine to prevent our hero, Buck the cowboy, from winning the Cowboy Derby, because if Sheriff Jack wins he will be able to evict Madame and get his evil hands on the saloon.

Tumbleweed enlists the magical help of a very unlikely Fairy Saddle-Sore when he 'rescues' her from a well. All sorts of mayhem ensues with every pun, corny joke, risque comment and laugh possible squeezed out of a very clever, funny script.
