      In the late 1940s and 1950s, the Western
      genre was ubiquitous in film, radio, television,
      and music. We wanted to grow up to be that
      cowboy or cowgirl portrayed as one who
      “always roped better, rode better, sang better,
      and shot better than anyone.” This summer,
      The Center’s reader’s theatre group will
      explore the legends, myths, and songs of the
      era of the cowboy, as they were romanticized
      and immortalized in the media. We will end
      our program with Jack Benny’s radio version
      of that epic of the West, the Stanley Kramer
      production of “High Noon.” Afterwards, join
      us for refreshments.
