Be sure to check out this year's Terrace Little Theatre production of dinner theatre, Roy Teed's western comedy, "The Rutabaga Ranger Rides Again".
"Birdie owns a very successful saloon, but she realizes that something is missing in her life. A man. But which man will she choose in a town full of layabouts and barrel-scrapings? B. Bertram "Bighorn" Smith owns all the other saloons in town and has his sights set on Birdie's saloon. When he finds out that Birdie is looking for a man, he decides to acquire her saloon through romance, much to the dismay of Ackers, the town constable, and Birdie's bar girls, Blanche, Mona, and Peaches, who will find themselves unemployed if Smith's plan succeeds. In an attempt to thwart Smith's plans, they decide to give Smith some competition, but complications arise and hilarity ensues."
This year's production stars some familiar TLT faces, as well as some bright newcomers. Cheryl Spencer, no stranger to dinner theatre audiences, is the successful saloon owner "Birdie", her bar girls "Blanche", played by newcomer Alice MacGregor, "Mona", played by long-time TLT member, Kyla O'Donnell, and "Peaches", played by newcomer, and Kyla's real-life sister, Kelly O'Donnell, along with the town constable "Ackers", played by newcomer Tom Fairley. In addition to these, we have "Tooley", the town drunk, played by Benjamin Bradford, who was seen in last year's dinner theatre, Chris Stone as "the barkeep", and rounding out the cast is long-time TLT member playing the role of the villain, Joe Zucchiatti as "B. Bertram "Bighorn" Smith.
No rutabagas were harmed in the making of this production.
