About the Play:
Buffalo Bill was an adventurer, a cowboy, a buffalo hunter, a Pony Express rider, and a showman. At the turn of the 20th century, thanks to his outrageous Wild West traveling shows, he was the most famous man on earth. He was a man so famous that he had a city named after him: Cody, Wyoming. He tells stories about fighting along side people, and staring death in the face.
And in the center of that town was a hotel named after one of the people he loved most in the world:
His daughter Irma. One week, on a long train trip from Omaha, where his Wild West show started, to the Irma Hotel, Buffalo Bill looks out on a West very different than the one from his childhood, and he tells his daughter his story.
The set design was a little more simple on this show. It took place on a train. I wish I could have taken more pictures, but there was no photography on this show.

Best for ages 6 and up. Isaak loved it, and he's close to 7. Mica liked it as well. He's 9.
This was a show more for little kids I felt. I'm just not a cowgirl at heart. I did love all the old footage that they showed throughout the show on a big screen.
Time: 70 minutes with no intermission. Go to the bathroom before you head into the show.

Prior to each Sunday performance, University of Nebraska at Omaha history professor Elaine Marie Nelson will share a pre-show presentation on William Cody and how his exhibition changed America, affecting us to this very day.
After the shows they have a question answer time with the cast. Isaak's had his hand up every time to ask a question, but there are a lot of kids there to ask questions. This time he wanted to know how they made the sound of the gun going off? I should email the question, but The Rose Theater is good about getting back to kids with answers! They even mention to email them.
I think any show that The Rose Theater has is great for kids. My boys just love going there!
