Wild West Electric Rodeo and Grand Ol’ Opry

5 February 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


The Deepest South Wayest Wildest West Electric Rodeo and Grand Ol’ Opry


Welcome to the Grand Ol’ Opry, the grandest Nashville-style talent showcase in the Southern hemisphere! Welcome to the Electric Rodeo, the most carnival-esque, rip-roaring hootenanny this far West of Texas! Welcome to the Deepest South, Wayest Wildest West Electric Rodeo and Grand Ol’ Opry, premiering this year at Wellington’s International Fringe Festival. We’re glad to have y’all.

Bring your loved ones, as well as a donation of a home-baked cake (or pay $12, whichever suits you best), and sit yourselves on down to contemplate why Rodeo Clowns and Circus Clowns are mortal enemies, what makes a Preacher spout Hellfire, and what the heck do superheros and bunnies have to do with any of it? You might win a pastry out of the deal, and maybe you’ll even get a sightin’ of the new Rodeo Queen. The least you’ll have is that rip-roarin’ good time we told you about back up there in that first paragraph. We guar-an-tee, or my momma ain’t named Fannie Lou May.

The rodeo clowns are game, the injuns got the beat, the superheros will save the world, the audience gets to play along, and the greatest talent this close to Antarctica is out, giving you their very best at the Deepest South Wayest West Electric Rodeo and Grand Ol’ Opry!

The “Rodeo” is showing at 11pm on the 17, 18, 24, and 25 of February at the Mighty Mighty. That’s Wednesday and Thursday nights for two weeks runnin.’ Lesser prices for the less fortunate amongst us are available with the Fringe Addict card, and there’s a rumour that deep discounts may be granted on last-minute seats for the really po’. That is, if we’re not all sold out.

Presented to you by Double Gemini Productions, alongside your local honorary Native American Legion and the International Secret Superhero Society. Oh yes, we talk cowboy.
