Set in Austin, Texas on the eve of Prohibition and World War I, this production from Texas Comedies/Crank Collective follows the feud between the “Drys” and the “Wets.”  Features forbidden love, war, Temperancers and a live band.

The newest addition to the “Texas History Musicals” series, following Murders & Moontowers, The True Story of Bonnie and Clyde, and Boomtown, Prohibition explores the true story of the battle in Central Texas over the prohibition of alcohol. This epic struggle involved Temperancers, the Klan, Suffragettes, Doughboys, German-Americans, brewers and poll fixers, and culminated in an era of increased criminality and vice.

The cast features Kirk Kelso, Megan Ortiz, Heath Allyn and Joshua Meindertsma. Band includes Mikey Walters, Chris La Cava and Jonathan Hoyle.
