Murder Rides Again! by James Daab

We are casting for 7 characters: 2 Women and 4 Men. One male role and one female role will be played by the same male actor.

Characters in the Wild West murder mystery include: the marshal and his deputy, a saloon girl, a gambler, a schoolmarm, a gunfighter and his sister.

The townsfolk of Groaners Gulch, Nevada have gathered once more for the annual chili cook-off. What a shindig! You may even compete in the “Cowboy of the Year Contest,” but wait just a dog gone minute…there’s a showdown at the I’m O.K. You’re O.K. Corral. The sun is hot and the trigger fingers are itchy. Will the sheriff save the town from outlaws or vice versa? Come be a part of the fun at Miss Liddy’s saloon and participate in this wacky Wild West excuse for a murder mystery!
