The Blanco was Blameless (or It was Balcones’ Fault) is an original script written by local playwright Russ Marlett with music by Jules Alexander of “The Association” band fame. This well written and well-received musical was featured in the Greenhouse Theatre fourteen years ago and was one of the first productions there ever to be held over by public demand. The backdrop for this production is Wimberley, the Star of Texas.
The Blanco was Blameless features Amanda Forsyth and Michelle Piersol, co-starring in the role of Sugar, the feisty orphaned goat farmer. Kitty Nichols plays Sugar’s patient Aunt Prudence who tries her darndest to make Sugar, the tomboy, into a fine lady. Lee Stubbs performs the role of Beau Beau, the well meaning but addled uncle; Travis, the high spirited ranch hand and suitor of Sugar, is played by Perry Redden; and Rick Nation and Whitney Marlett appear as the evil villains, Foscue and Lolita.
Written as a melodrama, the production offers rapid fire dialogue and catchy tunes that will have you booing the bad guys and cheering Sugar on as she fights to keep her goat ranch from two of the most dishonest and despicable characters ever to visit the Hill Country. It is a must see both from the standpoint of the entertainment value of The Blanco was Blameless and the debut of the newest and most distinctive theatre in the community. You are invited to come and share an evening with us at The Rep at Katherine Ann Porter School in Wimberley, Texas.
