You've Died of Dysentery: An Improvised Oregon Trail Experience

Thursday, March 5 · view days & times
Price: $8 | $7 students & seniors* | $6.50 ArtsQuest Member
Venue: Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas

Ford the river and make your way to SteelStacks for this completely unauthorized parody of everyone's favorite educational video game.

Old-timey prospector Jebadiah Ulysses Lunger leads a cast of comedians on an improvised journey along the Oregon Trail. Anything can happen, but more than likely everyone will die!

Join our intrepid party of travelers as they make their way from South Bethlehem all the way to the Pacific Northwest. Will our pioneers survive grueling happenings like broken wagon wheels, bartering for supplies, and/or fording a river? Watch what will happen when they kill too many buffalo and squirrels and they can't take all the food on their wagon? Who will live and who will die from dysentery? Will it be everyone? Probably!
