Oh, how the west was fun! Be sure to catch the Ballad of Buzzard Basin at Fountain Hills Theater.


Don’t miss the Ballad of Buzzard Basin by the award-winning Artistic Direct of Fountain Hills Theater, Peter J. Hill. This old-time cowboy musical celebrates the old west. When men were men and so were the women! However, when the town drunk Skragg Mudd refuses to abide by the ‘Code of the West’, something must be done! This musical is filled with classical western songs and populated by steely-eyed gunslingers, pious padres, rock-jawed lawmen and saloon gals with hearts of gold. This world premier musical proves just how fun the west really was! The Ballad of Buzzard Basin is sure to leave you kickin’ up your boot heels.
