Interesting...

I found this on the web. Apparently, Jon and Nancy took the show Cat Ballou on the road to Wichita, Kansas after it closed in Jackson. Or did they just sell the script?

WRITER JON AND NANCY STAINBROOK
DIRECTOR TED J. MORRIS
PRODUCER TED J. MORRIS
PRODUCTION COMPANY CROWN UPTOWN DINNER THEATRE
SUMMARY
A musical stage version of the Jane Fonda and Lee Marvin picture first performed in Jackson Hole, WY and in this production in a dinner theatre in Wichita, KS.

UPDATE: The Crown Dinner Theater opened in 1977, so that piqued my interest. However, I emailed the actor, MJJ Cashman, and found out their production of Cat Ballou was in 2005. Cashman told me the producer, Ted Morris, had seen the show at Dirty Jack's Theater in Jackson Hole and obtained the rights to Jon and Nancy's musical adaptation.
