The Old West came to life, sort of, recently at Shepaug Valley High School in Washington.

"A Western" was presented in two stagings, courtesy of the thespian talents and sense of humor of young actors from FineLine Theatre Arts in New Milford.

Directed by Scott Wise and Leland Williams, wave after wave of energetic and well-trained youths from FineLine's theater acting school presented an Old West spoof featuring romance, saloon hijinks, gunfight showdowns and even a dash of magical love potion.
