Season 1, Episode 3: "The Crimson Cowpoke"
The evil Hacker Brothers have run just about everyone out of town except for Miss Kitty the *ahem* "saloon keeper," Schoolmarm Pearl Hart, Ichabod the undertaker and old drunk Jesse. Prospector MacGuffin finally struck gold and the Hackers aim to take over the claim. The town's only salvation lies in dime-novel hero The Crimson Cowpoke -- who mysteriously shows up just as handsome, young Andrew West moves to town to set up a General Store! This week's episode has rip-roaring action, whips and gunfights at high noon, tying an ingenue to the train tracks, an incredibly smart horse named Bluebell and much more!
Recorded live at Bozeman, Montana's Equinox Theatre, now known as the Verge Theater on July 2, 2011! What you hear is what the audience heard with no overdubs and minimal post-production to try to make it comfortable to your ears! In this first season, we had not yet made the decision to have entirely analog effects, but Sound Impresario Rob Robinson did activate each one live on stage!
