The eighth chapter in the Silver Spur Theater's annual melodrama series – Ballot Box Bedlam! Or The Millionaire Mountebank’s Mayoral Machination by Gary Askins – has the peaceful village of Salado in an election fever dither as their one-candidate mayoral race is hijacked by a power-hungry outsider.
Can hero Ranger Grainger save Miss Goody Goody and the peaceful Salado citizenry from the peril of an unfair election? Will Snidely O. Slipknot’s Super-Duper PAC rig the voting and put Herman Lame, the villain’s stooge, into office? That and other questions will be answered with a healthy dose of slapstick, song and satire.
The popular, family-centric "melo" opens for a four-weekend run at 7:30 p.m., Friday, July 27, complete with popcorn-throwing patrons, on-screen pie-fights and pernicious ploys. Additionally, a locally-made "movieola," an old-style silent film with live music, once again features Salado citizens and businesses in a fun-filled, flickering farce that moves the comedy along.
