Theatre West presents the world premiere of Our Man in Santiago, a comic spy thriller inspired by the true story of a spectacularly botched U.S. attempt to overthrow Chile's democratically elected leader. In this new political farce by two-time Emmy nominee and WGA award-winner Mark Wilding (Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Good Girls, Charmed), the CIA enlists an inexperienced, unsuspecting agent to follow up with a last-ditch, poorly conceived and wildly dangerous effort to hasten the 1973 Chilean coup d'etat.

THE ROOT BEER BANDITS is the story of five characters that meet in the center of Sarsaparilla City, Calif., in 1860. Featuring an original score by composer Rachael Lawrence and lyrics by Joseph Leo Bwarie, the musical comedy penned by Bwarie and Lori Marshall is a fan-favorite known for its vaudeville timing and melodramatic antics.

What this trio doesn't realize is that the dastardly duo of Copper Penny and Zeke have already infiltrated the township and the scheming has commenced. Amidst the musical comedy mayhem, it's a saga of realizing one's dreams, and being true to one's self. The crowd-pleasing production that brings the spirit and adventure of the Wild West to life in the made-up township of Sarsaparilla City returns with an expanded story and more songs. The dynamic cast is complimented by a live band on stage! Mask compliance for all audience members, and a fully vaccinated staff, band, and cast, makes for peace of mind at this wildly entertaining outing for all ages.
