Don't Miss the Deadwood Alive Performances!
Sep 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed all the antics of the Deadwood Alive troupe, the street shootouts, the reenactment of the killing of Wild Bill, and the trial of Jack McCall. They are a really fun group, my favorite being Potato Creek Johnny. I highly recommend you include their performances both free and the very affordable paid ones.
**As with several other things I experienced in Deadwood, I would much prefer they kept their politics separate from the entertainment. I felt the politics of this area was forced on us everywhere we turned. It's risky as it can alienate some of your audience and spoil an otherwise really fun time.

Clean, good fun
Sep 2021 • Couples
Throughout the day we had caught various performances of the Deadwood Alive troupe. They're an upbeat, happy, fun-loving bunch. We were getting tired and almost called it a night. Glad we decided to attend the trial. It is a must see event. People from the audience are included as witnesses at the trial. These "performances" are guided but allow for a little error and wiggle room which the actors embrace and moments of hilarity ensue. Our best suggestion for your visit: relax, let loose and join in the fun.

Laughing At History
Sep 2021
We attended the show on the evening of 9/1/2021. We started the experience by seeing the reenactment of the murder of Wild Bill Hickok in Saloon No. 10. The show then spilled out into the street where Jack McCall was captured. Then, on to the trial. The actors are loads of fun. It's remarkable how they keep the show "fresh" each night. My wife and I were thrilled to be chosen to act in the trial. That made the experience all the more special. This is a great, fun way to experience and learn about history. The kids in the audience knew that they were having fun, not having a history lesson. I highly recommend the show!!

Needs a reboot. Could be amazing
Sep 2021 • Family
We drove to deadwood for the 6pm shootout. Couldn’t hear AT ALL so it ended up being sort of lame. Could be so awesome with more action, better mikes. I hope they will give it a reboot. What I understood of the plot was thin, but based on reality??? NEW PLOT. 5 ppl polled: 1, 1, 1, 3.5, 3. Potential 5 star event though.

Amazing experience.
Sep 2021 • Family
Absolutely amazing experience. Can't believe it's only $8/adult. I'd pay $20+ for it. The show was fun, entertaining, and educational. The actors were incredibly friendly and nice. I definitely recommend it!

A Must See in Deadwood.
The actors are very engaging and very funny. They include the audience in the trial which makes it even better. We haven’t laughed that much in quite a while. Highly recommend.
