A wild time in the wild west

Reading Time: 1 minute

The Morinville Community Cultural Centre’s 2016-2017 performance series continued Saturday night with Accidental Humour’s Cowboy: A Cowboy Story, a comedy about a mysterious stranger who rides into a small town in the middle of nowhere only to find himself caught between a conniving sheriff, a crazed prospector, a coarse prostitute, and a gang of thugs.

Theatre-goers got a different type of show Saturday, one that mixed live theatre with pre-recorded tech.

Accidental Humour uses three projectors playing pre-filmed movie scenes that are seamlessly choreographed with the live performances, a combination that generated many laughs purely on the basis of the cleverness.

The evening dinner and romp through the old west drew 250 out for the night.

  1. The timing of this event was perfect! I know there were a few of us that got tickets for hard-to-buy-for parents as Christmas gifts. They had a great time. Thanks!
