Taproot Theatre Extends CHAPS! Through 8/18

Due to popular demand, Taproot Theatre Company has extended their hit musical Chaps! through August 18, giving people one more week to lasso their laughter and experience this mash-up of British humor and cowboy music.

Ever wonder what would happen if Monty Python met Roy Rogers? It’s 1944 and America’s favorite singing cowboys are saddled up to take the British airwaves by storm. There’s just one problem: the crooners are no-shows. What’s the BBC to do? These blokes must convince the whole of England that they're a band of guitar pickin' American singing cowboys. Pull on your boots, loosen your tie, and get ready for a summer musical that’ll rope you in and leave you in stitches. As The Seattle Times explained, "... you'll find yourself humming along and laughing as sagebrush and longhorns join forces with a spot of tea and a stiff upper lip."

Directed by Associate Artistic Director Karen Lund, with musical direction by Edd Key, Chaps! was written by Jahnna Beecham and Malcolm Hillgartner with vocal arrangements by Malcolm Hillgartner and Chip Duford. This production features a talented cast of Solomon Davis, William Hamer, Ian Lindsay, Caitlin Macy-Beckwith, Simon Pringle and Sam Vance. The production team includes scenic designer Richard Lorig, costume designer Sarah Burch Gordon, lighting designer Brian Engel, sound designer Mark Lund and dialect coach Gin Hammond. Kristi Matthews serves as stage manager and Tina Polzin as dramaturg.
