A lot has changed since the show’s beginning in the summer of 2016 proving there is no business like show business. 2018’s show was set to razzle dazzle the crowds with an expanded script, additional characters, and the most visible improvement, more complex lighting and scenery. Opening night on June 27th went out with a bang as over 300 locals packed the Cody Theatre.
For the cast of 35, countless rehearsals and practices were held in order to prepare for the 5 week season. Adding singing to the show, RMDT was thrilled to have Alice & Larry Munari on board as acting & voice directors. Executive Director, Elizabeth Fernandez worked throughout the season with help from her Assistant Director, Brittany Schneider, to improve each show and keep performers on their toes. This year Cynthia Kaelberer accompanied each show providing another new element, live music.
In 21 performances over 1500 people attended the show, proving big dreams aren’t just for Buffalo Bill. RMDT’s Wild West Spectacular continues to look ahead and is excited to bring the Legend of Buffalo Bill and his Wild West show to life in this LIVE original musical each summer.
