and the Tarporley Carnival Procession
Directed by Jan Blackford
A carnival float was used to publicise the production
Based on the Dime Novels of Edward L. Wheeler
A Rootin' Tootin' Melodrama of the Gay ‘90s in Three Acts
Exciting stories taken from cheap novels of the 1880's about a Robin Hood of the Black Hills, and the melodramatic lure of the Old West
Sub-titled The Game of Gold, the play centers around the conniving of the central villain, Black'n Red, and the two heroes' attempts to thwart him. The heroes are Ned Harris and Wild Bill Hickock. Being a melodrama, there must be ladies in distress and Deadwood Dick has two, sisters, Rose and Lily Blossom.
