First Bank and Diamonds and Gold present Let Me Be Franks 18th all-original Christmas comedy musical â€œRandolph the Baddest Outlaw." This year we go back to the 1880s and Wild Western Wisconsin. You see, Randolph Winedeer is an outlaw, in the sense that he wants to be the baddest outlaw this side of the Fox River. The Wild West boomtown of Waupaca is full of outlaws and well, they make fun of good ole Randolph Winedeer 'cause the baddest thing this outlaw ever done did was miss church once in a while. Good ole Randolph has had enough of the teasing, so he and his sidekick, Slushy Morals, come up with a caper even the Grinch would be proud of! Sherriff Wunhorst Whopenslae is on the case. Will Randolph the baddest outlaw ruin Christmas? The show is a little Rudolph and Grinch rolled into a clean â€œBlazing Saddles."
This is a family-friendly show, so bring the kiddos; they will love the pageantry and the larger-than-life characters in this good-guy/bad-guy caper. The show runs Dec 1st-23rd Tuesday-Saturday at the Meyer Theatre at 8 p.m. Matinees are Dec. 7, 14 & 16 at 1 p.m. Tickets available through ticketstaronline.com or by calling (920) 494-3401.
