The Jr. Starlighters will present Shakespeare Comes to Calamity Creek at Mantua UMC Aug. 2-4, at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 2 and 3 and 1 p.m. on Aug. 4. Tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for children.

Ah, Shakespeare in the… Old West?! Noble Hart, a conceited actor, arrives in the small mining town of Calamity Creek determined to bring culture to the locals. His troupe of actors is enough to make a playwright cry. The one exception is the lovely Sunny Day. She falls for Texas Ranger Johnny Lasso, who’s hot on the trail of a notorious crook masquerading under the name of Gentleman Dan, whose true identity is unknown. It’s almost as if he was a master of disguise, like…  an actor, perhaps? The troupe’s arrival thrills the townspeople, except Abagail Pettigrew, the richest person in town. She’s harboring a dark secret about her former occupation. Cast some stranded dancers, a few would-be outlaws and striking gold miners, and you’ve just set the stage for a wild musical bonanza!
