This brand new pantomime is set in the wild wild west in the sleepy little town of Faringdon Falls. Clarence is an Angel that must help someone to earn his wings, so he is sent down to earth to help George Bailey, the sheriff and general good egg of Faringdon Falls. George is put in a predicament when the money raised by the Town to build a home for the orphans is stolen by Buck & Bronco the henchmen of Jim Bean, the Baddie. George follows them into the desert to return the money, however the townsfolk think he has stolen it so they set off to get it back. Lots of songs, dance and parts.
