Calls for seven individuals, plus three, unskilled “gunslingers” who will have one line each are open. There is also need for a singer/narrator who’s able to play old cowboy songs on the guitar. Additional cast members will also be cast.
The Death and Life of Sneaky Fitch follows the title character, a “no-good, drunken, brawling nuisance,” through the town of Gopher Gulch. There are few tears when Sneaky Fitch apparently dies, but when he rises from his coffin, the story changes.
