    by  • June 4, 2019

    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance by Jethro Compton
    Directed by J Gary Thompson

    Production Dates: June 7 – 23, 2019

    Journey into the Wild West in the year 1890, in this classic story of good versus evil, law versus the gun, one man versus Liberty Valance. When a young scholar from New York City travels west in search of a new life, he arrives beaten and half-dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees. Rescued from the plains, the town soon becomes his home. A local girl gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead? He must make the choice to turn and run or to stand up for what he believes.

    Run time:  2 hours, 30 minutes (including 15 minute intermission)
