My husband and I attended this production on the first night of our visit to Cody, and WE CANNOT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH! We had not heard about the show prior to our visit, but upon walking by the Theatre itself and meeting some of the fantastic staff and crew, we decided to purchase tickets. I was completely blown away by the performance--how the story of Buffalo Bill Cody's show came to life through singing, dancing, acting, etc. I've lived in Wyoming for over 12 years and just now finally have an understanding of some of our state's most infamous characters. I loved this production so much that I attended it again two days later!!! Did I mention that I can't recommend it enough? The ticket prices are very inexpensive for the great entertainment you are guaranteed to receive, and you can bet that this show is a great option for young and old alike. Thank Wild Bill Hickok for this review. (Go see the show and you'll understand what I mean!)

A Playful, Poignant and Powerful evening. This is a spectacular" presentation of the meaning and feel of the West as told through the life story of Bill Cody, a man who sacrificed much (as did his wife) to follow his dreams.

The Homeward Bound duet between Cody his daughter Irma is deeply touching. The Buffalo dance is hauting and evokes deep feelings about a West that faded in Cody's lifetime. Both alone are worth the price of admission.

Wambake as Cody excells. Stahl as Annie Oakley sings beautifully (and is beautiful. Keep her hat back so that her eyes aren't in shadow). You could pay a lot more off Broadway and get a lot less than this show delivers. Much better than many college theater productions I've been to over the years.

Go. It's something you can't experience anywhere but in Cody WY.

We all enjoyed the dancing scenes but I thought it was also fun to learn more about Buffalo Bills life including his interaction with his daughter. I learned a lot and thought the actors and actresses did a great job. I recommend visitors to Cody see this show before they visit the museum!!

My wife and I took two of our grandkids and daughter in law. We were in awe of the great acting, dancing, singing and comic relief in this well produced musical. The music was live which made it that much more enjoyable. The pianist did and amazing job!!
I would highly recommend that if you're in Cody take an evening to see this wonderful musical It'll be well worth your $
PS: You can even get a Sarsaparilla (like a Root Beer)

Great Show! We enjoyed everything from the historic theatre to the fun refreshments. We were impressed with the creative approach to telling the story of William Cody and his adventurous spirit, and even more impressed with the talented cast. Your trip to Cody should include the Wild West Spectacular!

We absolutely loved the Wild West Spectacular Show! I brought my two daughters, ages 4 and 5 and they were entertained and engaged the entire show! We loved the interactive intermission with the cast members. The singing and dancing was great! Such a fun way to learn about the history of Buffalo Bill and the town of Cody. We highly recommend the show whether you are a local or just visiting Cody. We will be back next year for sure!

I wish I could leave a 10 out of 5 stars! The Wild West Spectacular was so much fun. If you're in the area, you must not miss it. So much fun for people of all ages. Great singing, amazing dancing, creative sets, and educational! Learn about the history of Wild Bill with an original story and amazing show tunes. The theatre is really comfortable and there's not a bad seat in the house. The performers really make the story come alive and audience involvement is encouraged. We couldn't quit smiling - it's obvious the performers are not only incredibly talented but really love the show. We drove all the way from Denver to see the show and it was totally worth it. I only wish we could have seen it a second time! Don't miss it - grab a sasparilla and enjoy! You're certain to be hootin', hollerin', and clapping!!

This show was a stellar way to end my trip to Yellowstone and Cody. The actors and dancers were incredibly talented & kept the whole audience captivated throughout the show. The show told the story of Buffalo Bill in a way that was historically accurate, while still entertaining. A beautiful job, I cannot speak more highly of the people who are in the show! If you are going to Cody, I would highly recommend checking out the Wild West Spectacular.

I love live theatre. I attended the Wild West Spectacular with six friends and we were all “Razzle Dazzled.” The WWS is a fun show with talented vocalists and dancers who hail from near and far. I loved learning about the history of Buffalo Bill and other prominent figures. I love the final line/message delivered by Buffalo Bill. It encapsulates the evening. And Clem, if Louisa doesn’t accept your gift, I’d be happy to take it home.

Our road trip had us spending the night in Cody, WY so we decided to check out the local theater production of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Spectacular. What an absolute treat! We expected a small, low budget telling of Buffalo Bill's story, but what we got was an energetic, funny, and thoroughly entertaining show that seemed bigger than the little playhouse. The local actors are fantastic, the dancing is top-notch, and the story is both fun and informative. Be sure to bring a few dollars and buy a Sarsaparilla on stage during intermission!
