Eighth-graders’ ‘Tied to the Tracks’ a shoot-’em-up, round-’em-up extravaganza
May 10, 2013


The Mount Vernon eighth grade choir presents "Tied to the Tracks" this coming week as this year's musical.

The show is Wednesday, May 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the district auditorium at the middle school. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for kids.

"Tied to the Tracks" aims to leave audience members tied up in knots - of laughter. And musical organizers say this action-packed, old-time musical western melodrama could be the most tuneful and wildest ever to hit the eighth grade stage. 

In the story, stalwart Sheriff Billy Bold (Ethan Wentz) and the delicate Dokota Melody (Rory McCollum) resist the evil machinations of Silias Scavenger (Lukas Moran) and Wild Prairie Rose (Brooke Kelley) in a shoot-'em-up, round-'em-up extravaganza.  The audience will be hitched to their seats as they are powerless in helping the beloved heroine, bound to a railway track, as she helplessly watches a locomotive race towards her.  Only one man can snatch her from this unworthy fate and bring justice to a thriving territory.  

This show boasts 10 original show tunes, including "A Rose With Plenty of Thorns," "We're the Harvey Girls," "He's a Meany, He's a Nasty, He's a Grouch" and "Knock Him Down Again, Sheriff Billy."
