The Mountain King

The Overtime Theater proudly presents The Mountain King, a Western Play by Lemuel Mitchell, set in the badlands of the Dakota Territory in 1876. Joshua is a naive young greenhorn from back east. Kady is his debaucherous and drunken old trail guide. The story follows this odd couple, alone on a long trail through the wilderness, as they travel to rendezvous with Buck Brewster, the greatest of the mountain men, the living myth, the Mountain King. Tensions rise as the men’s differences and the mysterious purpose of their expedition into the Black Hills of Dakota threaten the mission and their very lives.

Performances run June 9th to July 1st, 2023, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, with one Sunday matinee on June 18th at 3 pm, and Pay-What-You-Will night now on Thursday, June 15 at 8 pm. The Overtime Theater is located at 5409 Bandera Road, Suite 205 on the city’s northwest side. General admission tickets are $18, or $12 for SATCO members, military and students with a valid ID.
