The Ballad of Buzzard Basin
Copperstate Productions is proud to announce the opening of The Ballad of Buzzard Basin, a brand-new, old-time cowboy musical that celebrates the essence, and yes, dag-nab-it, the quintessence of the old, old, old west, when men were men and so were the women. But when the town drunk Skragg Mudd refuses to abide by the ‘Code of the West’ something must be done! Filled with classic western songs and populated by steely-eyed gunslingers, pious padres, rock-jawed lawmen & saloon gals with hearts of gold, this World Premier musical proves how the west was fun!
