Double Crossed in The Dalles:
Come see an entertaining and tongue in cheek look at the colorful history of our little corner of the world. This melodrama is set in the early days of The Dalles when the town was the hopping end of the Oregon Trail, a promising and thriving political seat ready for the big time. The heroine of the show finds her naive self in the clutches of the villainous salon owner, Double Cross. Our heroine, Cherry Pitts, is befriended by a couple of local madams who are tired of turning a blind eye to the evil Double Cross's ways. In rides our hero, Randy Orchards, and the rest, as they say, is history! The show will be presented as a dinner theater, with audience members encouraged to come in costume and participate in the Wild West fun.

Tickets to this production are available at the door.
