The Last One Nighter on The Death Trail starring The Disappointment Players
Book by Christie Vela and David Goodwin, Songs by Our Endeavors Theater Collective
Directed by Matthew Earnest
Presenting the professional world premiere of the musical The Last One Nighter on The Death Trail developed by local artists Christie Vela, David Goodwin and Our Endeavors Theater Collective. In the early 20th century, Elm Street in Dallas, Texas, was lined with vaudeville houses and movie theaters. In this fun and raucous story, a troupe of vaudevillians in the early ‘30s wait behind a theater in Dallas for their opportunity to go on stage. They’re the disappointment act and only go on if someone else cancels. It questions what is and isn’t art and why it is necessary. Watch out, though. It’s the prohibition era in the Bible Belt and the cops are cracking down on all unseemly behavior!
