An all new piece of writing, this play makes use of different storytelling devices to whistle through the life of one of the West’s most notorious outlaws, Billy the Kid. An ensemble cast of 10 take on all roles across the stories, showing us what happens when unfortunate circumstance affects the life of a young boy, and how constant media attention and hero-worship can turn somebody into something they are not.

Join Off the Ground Theatre this summer for another darn-tootin’ outside theatrical adventure, as they recount the life and times of one of the Wild West’s most notorious outlaws, with The Ballads of Billy the Kid.

Billy the Kid might be one of the most famous gunslingers to have ever lived, but how much of what he did was true? How can we know for sure? Join Billy on the adventures of his lifetime, as he scales mountains, robs trains, duels bad guys, races against famous cowboys and ultimately confront the law!

Fun times, enormous hats and hilarious accents are guaranteed with this summer show.
