“Bullshot Crummond”, Denton Community Theater
This parody of a British pulp hero and bored pilot (Bulldog Drummond) takes place pre-WWII. It concerns a plot by the dastardly Count Otto Von Brunno to ruin the international diamond market by kidnapping Professor Rupert Fenton. Working against them are Hugh "Bullshot" Crummond and Rosemary (the professor's daughter). Of course, the characters are highly stereotypical: a German supervillain, a femme fatale, a pet falcon, an absent-minded professor, a damsel in distress and Crummond, a highly intelligent and quick-witted hero. Intentionally failed “special effects”, bizarre coincidences and unlikely occurrences add to the knee-slapping fun. We will leave at 12:30 pm, attend the 2:00 matinee, eat at LSA Burger (on your own) and return about 7. Cost will be $25 for members and $27 for nonmembers. Please register early as the number of tickets is limited.
