Between the Outlaw and the Rock
by Sam Bass Theatre Association
Feb. 16 - Feb. 25
Between the Outlaw and the Rock stands the law. In the years following the Civil War, Texas
Rangers and local sheriffs stood together to protect the peaceful town of Round Rock from Sam Bass and his gang. Not an easy task with cowboys swarming the town at the round rock
crossing along the Chisholm Trail and speculators arriving at the new train station. Texas Ranger Major John B. Jones leads the troops in the Sam Bass War, supported by Round Rock Deputy Sheriff A. W. Grimes and thwarted by the Mysterious Hairy Man, identical twins who disagree with each other on just about everything and Miz Ettie’s crusade to close the saloons and get women the vote. Add a search for buried treasure and there’s plenty of action and reaction when Sam and his gang show up to rob the Round Rock bank. How much of this story is true and how much Texas Tall Tale is up to you to decide!
