    Wild West Shakespeare

    Shakespeare, or perhaps his goofy cousin, returns to the American West Heritage Center in Wellsville with this year's comedy production of "A Whole Lotta Fussin' Over Nothin'", a melodrama adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing by Logan resident Wendi Hassan. The show opens June 17 and runs most Fridays and Saturdays June through August. Directed by Lynda Linford, borrowed from the Old Lyric Repertory Company and USU, the production features dancing, singing, and comedy aplenty as the Wild West Shakespeare company has Wild West fun for its second consecutive season. The show begins at 7 pm, but viewers are encouraged to come as early as 5 pm for Wild West activities such as wagon rides, tomahawk throwing, steer roping, panning for gold, and others. Audience members may also add a chuck wagon dinner--provided by Elements Restaurant--to their experience for $10. The show itself costs $10 ($8 for children; under 6 years of age strongly discouraged). Reservations are required and can be obtained by contacting the American West Heritage Center at (435) 245-6050. Tickets may be purchased online, and specific dates and times can be found on the Heritage Center's website: awhc.org . The American West Heritage Center is a nonprofit organization devoted to celebrating and preserving the heritage of our area.

      I hope you'll join us! We are really having fun: melodrama, music, dancing, farce and Shakespeare all rolled up into one amazing bundle. The dinner is really fine, too. Best mashed potatoes I've... Expand
