Daily Staff Report
Vail CO, Colorado

BRECKENRIDGE ” Last year’s sold-out hit returns for eight shows only at the Backstage Theatre, Oct. 26 through Nov. 4. “Cannibal The Musical!,” written by Trey Parker the co-creator of “South Park,” is based on actual events from Colorado’s history. Given Trey Parker’s spin ” the story revolves around Alferd Packer, who leads a group of men from Utah to Colorado Territory (their destination is Breckenridge) in search of gold. Along the way, they have a run-in with malicious trappers, lose Packer’s beloved horse, Liane, encounter a weed-loving Indian tribe, and meet a grisly fate when they get horribly lost in the snowy Colorado mountains.

And they sing and dance a lot, too. Musical numbers include “Shpadoinkle Day,” “Let’s Build a Snowman” and “When I Was On Top Of You.”

“Cannibal” opens on Friday, Oct. 26 and plays Saturday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 28 at 7:30 p.m. The show resumes on Halloween, Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m. and plays Thursday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m., closing on Nov. 4. The show contains adult language, mature content and comic violence. All shows are held at the Breckenridge Theatre, located at 121 S. Ridge St. in Breckenridge.
