2012-02-02 · By Editor
GO-FAME Youth Theatre Company announces its 3rd annual melodrama production, Here Come the Cows (or Never Say “Moo” in Mesa),written by Tim Kelly and directed by Dale Jones. The show features local youth ages 8-18 and includes an old-fashioned olio revue of song, dance and comedy!
In the grand tradition of western melodrama, Here Come The Cows has heroes to cheer, villains to boo with the added bonus of a “genuine” cattle stampede live on stage! What could be more fun? Audience participation is encouraged, making for an interactive theater experience. So come meet the townspeople of Mesa, AZ where it is so hot the cows are producing evaporated milk and the chickens are laying hard-boiled eggs.
“We are pleased to offer our cast not only the chance to learn about and perform in a real melodrama” Said Elaine Zofrea GO-FAME Artistic Director “ but they get the opportunity to work with Dale Jones, whose credits include performing melodramas at the Birdcage Theater at Knotts Berry Farm. We are also very excited to be presenting this on our new Studio stage.”
