Soapy Smith's Alaskana Extravaganza
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A madcap vaudeville style comedy set during the Alaskan gold rush of 1896. When impresarios Chilkoot Charlie and Yukon Kate learn that the show they are scheduled to present (on behalf of the renowned con artist Soapy Smith) has met with disaster, they are compelled to make do with what passes for local talent. Hilarity ensues among the threadbare thespians until the final riotous moment. Dance, physical comedy and music are all part of the madcap fun in this frosty frontier frolic fun for the whole family.
