Songbird Sessions: Catskill Puppet Theater
The Villain’s Moustache is a traditional old-time melodrama set in the 1930's, during the heyday of hobos and railroads, distraught heroines, & wisecracking villains! The play takes place in the Old West and is illustrated with original music along with lively Vaudeville show tunes. The audience never fails to get involved, whether booing the villain or shouting advice to the rest of the cast to keep them from being swindled by the nefarious Bad Knad!
