Rebecca Angel has been murdered! Apparently our “angel” had fallen on hard times and intended to climb back up ~ any way she could. She would stop at nothing: committing bank robbery, blackmail, even double-parking her horse. It also seems her little black diary makes for better copy than the National Enquirer ~ and everybody’s secrets are out!

Could Esperanza have a need for revenge or did she just not want the competition in a bad economy? Did Hyrum Q. Justice “see” something about Rebecca that made him snap? Could the Reverend Brimstone’s “private healings” have gone too far? Or perhaps Helen and her “friend” finally got away with murder? Be prepared to have some knee slappin’ fun as you come along for one of the wildest Wild West rides of your life!


Marshal Jim Courtright – (Male, 21-55) Jim is an intelligent, kind lawman struggling to maintain order in one of the wildest parts of Texas. He would like to spend a quiet evening at home, but instead will be working his way through a parade of zany characters to determine who murdered Rebecca.

Reverend Simon Brimstone – (Male, 21-55) A man who believes the wages of sin should be paid directly to his “orphanage fund.” Equipped with a used carnival tent and a wife who gets “healed” at every revival, he is on a mission to save our souls…one dollar at a time.

Esperanza – (Female, 21-40) This newly hired, fiery dance hall girl attempts to outrun her past, but her past keeps running along beside her. Always on the lookout for her “Big Daddy,” she’s long on name and short on details about her previous vocation and just who she was to Rebecca Angel. **This role requires a Spanish accent.

Helen Brimstone – If at first you don’t succeed…try, try again! She’s on husband number eight, this one may not be her last, and her split personality always has the final say. Helen may finally succeed by turning the hard earned “orphanage fund” into her well-deserved “widow’s fund.”

**The role of Judge Hyrum Q. Justice has been pre-cast.

“Tumbleweed Crossing” is our dynamic, self-contained, authentic old west set; which comes to life with our award-winning comedy gunfight stunt show. Our action-packed shows are filled with stunts, crowd pleasing comedy, and special effects!

Marshal Luke Stephens – (Male, 21-55 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, 21-45 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, 21-50 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.
