In 1869, the sleepy town of Palisade, Nevada began carrying out hoaxes for train passengers passing through, staging elaborate fake gunfights, kidnappings, and other Wild West style events. In this musical, we bring the people of Palisade to life as they experience their own stories of love and adventure while preparing their biggest hoax yet. Local innkeeper Herman Goodall has taken the lead as ‘director,’ but does not allow his young daughter Ida to participate, but when Herman is injured in a rehearsal, Ida knows that it’s her time to lead.
