TWU Drama heads ‘West of the Pecos’ for cowboy ballet


DENTON — The Old West takes on a new look — and sound — as the Texas Woman’s University Department of Drama stages a dinner theater production of “Zane Grey’s West of the Pecos, A Cowboy Bal-let” Feb. 24-26.

The TWU presentation — a cowboy ballet in pantomime — is an adaptation of Mr. Grey’s romantic western novel by Dr. Tony Medlin, assistant professor of drama, who also directs the play. TWU music faculty member Joe Pinson, also known as “Mister Joe,” composed an original score for the production.

Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24 and 25, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, at Fremaux’s Metropolitan Catering, 932 W. University Drive in Denton. Ticket prices, including dinner, are

$25 for adults and $15 for students. Tickets for the play only are $5. To make reservations, or for more information, contact the TWU Box Office at (940) 898-2020.

The cast includes Joshua Hancock of Kilgore as Pecos Smith; Tarah Blasi of Wichita Falls as Terril; Brad McEntire of Carrollton as the Sawtell Brothers; Kelley Davis of Idalou as Colonel; Lindsay Turman of Lamesa as Vaquero; and Megan Welch of Fort Worth as Boy. Other members of the ensemble include Chrissy English, Chris Becher and Brandi Jamme, all of Denton.
