An interactive Wild West show for kids and families about how to manage anger
when we could just blow right up!
In this rootin’ tootin’ tall tale penned by InterAct’s Artistic Director Ali Oliver-Krueger, we meet Pufferfish Pat, a legendary cowboy hero who can outride, outrope and outrun just about anything–except his own hair-trigger temper! When Pat gets angry, he blows up like a Pufferfish, which gets him a nickname he hates and bad reputation he doesn’t want. He wants to be a friend to everyone and stay cool as a cucumber…he just doesn’t know how! And with the little town of Gravy Gulch heating up for the annual Great Gravy Cookoff and Fashion Festival, it’s more important than ever that Pat keep his cool! Where can he go to find folks who might understand or help him with this ornery problem? And what happens when black hat cowboy One-Eyed Jack rolls back into town, looking to get Pat run out of town for good? Will Pat be able to get a hold of his mean temper in time, or is it adios, Gravy Gulch?
The play is performed by three actors appearing as many different characters in and around the dusty town of Gravy Gulch, with help from the whole audience, who get to become the cowpokes and townsfolk of Gravy Gulch right from where you sit!
