Wagner’s Ring Cycle is spun as a witty Texas fable with five actors playing more than 30 outrageous characters at breakneck speed. Songs run the gamut from Broadway to Texas swing, from jazz to twangy country and western. Mismatched lovers who meet on the day of their shotgun double wedding, three generations of feuding families, a magic ring of power, wild west lariat tricks, a synchronized swimming revue, a song and dance tribute to the joys of guacamole, and the sweetest two step ever to slide across a stage add up to wild comedy.

General admission is available starting Monday, Nov. 27. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for youth. The box office will be staffed on weekdays from noon-1 p.m. and 6:30-7:30 p.m., and one hour before each show. You are welcome to leave a message on the answering machine with your ticket request, and the staff will reserve your tickets and call you back with confirmation.

NCT is proud to be partnering with local businesses as exclusive sponsors for each performance of “Das Barbecü,” and one lucky audience member per show will win a fabulous prize.
