Ronin Theatre Co. presents “How I Came to Be Buffalo Bill”

*Ticket sales online end the day before performance, and tickets can be bought at door for $20*

Presented by Ronin Theatre Co., Featuring local Arizonian winning actor Keath Hall. William F. Cody, better known as Buffalo Bill, did more to popularize the American Wild West than any other person. Made famous by dime novelist Ned Buntline, Cody used his innate gift of self-promotion to capitalize on a reputation as an army scout, American Indian fighter and buffalo hunter. This one-person performance gives you a backstage pass to the origins of his reenactment rodeo: Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show!

The Playboy of the Western World

Nothing too exciting ever found its way to Flaherty’s tavern until the day Christopher Mahon walked in. A stranger from far off, Christy says he’s on the run for the murder of his own father. Barbaric, you’d think? Outrageous, they’d say? But, in this establishment, a reputation like that will make you a regular talk of the town. Soon enough, Christy is winning over the townsmen with stories of heroism and valor and winning over the ladies with charm and danger, especially the impressionable Pegeen Mike. But, is Christy Mahon the sort of playboy he claim to be? I mean, what sort of a man really can kill his dad and get away with it?
