Summary

This Off-Broadway hit is a hilarious cowboy musical complete with singing cacti, good guys vs bad guys and delicious comedy to sink your teeth into. The citizens of a dusty forsaken frontier town are looking for someone to rescue them from the terrors of Big Bill Yardley. Have they met their salvation–or an even greater evil–when a fiend of legend comes to town?

“Tumacho” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
