Musical melodrama. Book by Charles H. Randall and Joan LeGro Bushnell. Music and lyrics by Joan LeGro Bushnell.
Cast: 4m., 4w. If you're looking for the lure of the Old West, you'll find intrigue when a series of mysterious disappearances ends in murder—and romance—when wild west show hero Matthew Merriweather meets Rainbow Heatherton, brave and beautiful heir to the Rainbow Ranch. You'll find excitement when banker Culver C. Cleaver aims to raise some dust and a cheer-filled finale when Basil Blackthorne hits the dirt. Your audience will tap its toes to tunes such as the upbeat "We're Gonna Make a New Beginning" and "I'm So Good at Being Bad!" and thrill to the haunting "She Is My Rainbow, She Is My Dream" as sung in countermelody to "It Was a Quiet Place There in His Arms." Randall and Bushnell have done it again. Here is a piece of pure entertainment with something for everyone! Music in book. Area staging.
