The seventh chapter in the Silver Spur Theater's annual melodrama series -- "Gone To Seed...or the Fiendish Financier's Nefarious Food Factory Fiasco" -- has the peaceful agrarian village of Salado facing a food crisis brought on by villainous Bartholomew B. Badseed.
The "melo" opens for a five-weekend run at 7:30 p.m., Friday, July 29, complete with popcorn, pie-fights and pernicious ploys plus the locally-made "movieola" (silent film) and John Maverick magic.
Maverick, a well known magician from Austin, portrays the new agricultural agent Badseed. Can Ranger Grainger save Maezy Moonflower and the Salado citizenry from the peril that ensues? This and other questions are answered with a healthy dose of slapstick, song and satire plus the old-style movie in which many of the town's citizens and businesses speed the plot along.
