Reviews of Never Shoot a Stampede Queen

The way actor Ryan Beil jumps from character to character — he plays more than a dozen people in Stampede Queen — is something that must be seen to be believed.

Every character in this play is distinct. The audience is never confused as to whom Beil portrays at any given time. His mannerisms and voice are different for each, and bring Leiren-Young’s sharp words to life.

Ever wonder how The Rocky Horror Picture Show would go over in Williams Lake? Beil and Leiren-Young provide that insight in a scene complete with a dance number that had the Pavilion audience at Thursday’s preview in stitches.

Things do get serious in Stampede Queen from time to time, but it’s Leiren-Young’s humour and Beil’s performance that win the day. ~Kamloops Daily News
