Royal Court Liverpool opens its Christmas show Little Scouse On The Prairie next week.

Written by Fred Lawless, the full cast from last year are back on board including; Paul Duckworth, Steven Fletcher, Lindzi Germain, Rachel Rae, Andrew Schofield and Alan Stocks, alongside the four lovely dancing nuns. The backstage team are also back together again with director Bob Eaton at the helm and musical director Howard Gray putting songs in our hearts.


The gang from Secosu are back but this time they have wound up in the Wild West! Donna Marie is very lost after a magical trip on a lambanana leaves her high and dry in a saloon bar and Bad Bart is in town with menace on his mind. Throw in a retired gunslinger and a barnload of homebrew and we’ve got a show!

Will the town be saved by the new sheriff who is quick on the draw? Will the French dancing girls lead the poor Shaolin Priest astray? Will we get through the show without making a filthy joke about bucking broncos?

The Roe Street-based theatre said the show is “packed with music and gags” and people should “just get down here for one of our craziest, funniest shows ever. We’ll have you laughing ’til the cowboys come home!”

Little Scouse On The Prairie starts on 25 November and was originally scheduled to close on 7 January but will now run until 21 January.
