Synopsis
Set in the American West of the late 19th century, this rollicking version of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy finds saloon proprietress Miss Leona welcoming back her friend Don Pedro after a skirmish on the plains. With Don Pedro is his estranged and bitter brother Don John. John’s attempts to wreak havoc with the local townsfolk finds cowboys, bar maids, school marms and school girls drawn into a compendium of mistaken identity, love, trickery, and fun!
