He's back... for thirds!
Hitting the stage after a three year absence, our Halloween hit boasts the return of our original Alferd Packer - Charlie Schmidt!
This manic musical was written by Trey Parker, co-creator of South Park and the uber-Tony award-winning "The Book of Mormon".
Based on actual events from Colorado's history (but given that unique Trey Parker spin), the story revolves around Alferd Packer who
leads a group of men from Utah to Colorado Territory (their destination is Breckenridge!) in search of gold.
Along the way, they have a run-in with malicious trappers, lose Packer's beloved horse, Liane, encounter a weed-loving Indian tribe,
and meet a grisly fate when they get horribly lost in the snowy Colorado mountains. Oh, and they sing and dance a lot, too.
And what of the flesh eating hinted at by the title? Well, let's just say that's all onstage... and much, much more! It's a boisterous,
bloody show that only the squeamish can refuse. Musical numbers include "Shpadoinkle Day", "Let's Build a Snowman", and "When I Was On Top Of You".
Adult humor, language, and brief nudity.
"Full of South Parkian humor - silly musical numbers, Mormons, and a lot of sloppy, gross, juvenile humor." ~ Kalamazoo Gazette
"A risque ode to the redemptive power of romantic, human love...oh, and flesh-eating, too." ~ L.A. Weekly
