Synopsis: “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” is a classic tale of love, hope, and revenge set against the vicious backdrop of a lawless society. A young man travels into the Wild West in search of a new life, only to end up beaten and left for dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees by notorious outlaw Liberty Valance. A local girl gives him purpose in this broken land. But when Valance returns to finish what he started, the young man must make the choice: turn and run or stand and fight… and become The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

CAST:

Ransome Foster (Lead): Male, 25-35
A well-read, educated young lawyer who travels West seeking a new life; he is stubborn and sometimes arrogant but always well-meaning; his sense of justice does not fit into the frontier.

Bert Barricune (Lead): Male, 35-50
A worn, tough, and proud gunslinger; intimidating, but fundamentally decent; he is in love with Hallie.

Hallie Jackson (Lead) Female, 20-35
Proprietor of the Prairie Belle Saloon. Strong-minded and rough talking. A survivor, equally fierce in her convictions and her loyalty.

Jim ‘The Reverend’ Mosten (Supporting): Male, 20-35 – African American
A young African-American man who grew up and works with Hallie at the saloon; a kind, well-mannered and gentle soul, has no education, but is an enthusiastic learner.

Liberty Valance (Supporting): Male, 30-50
A notorious outlaw, gang leader, and “Southern Gentleman” whose polite façade conceals his viciousness and propensity toward violence. Terrifyingly unpredictable.

Marshal Johnson (Supporting): Male, 40-60
The local lawman; he talks the talk but when it comes down to it, he’s a coward.

Jake Dowitt
(Supporting): Male, 20-40
A reporter for a small local paper; will double in other roles as needed.

Gang, Mourners, Deputy, Students (Ensemble)Males 20-60
Up to four ensemble members to play townsfolk, outlaws, and deputies.
