One doesn’t often hear cowboys singing Bob Marley tunes but IMPACT Theatre’s latest production I Shot the Sheriff, over May 18-22, managed to fully immerse its audiences in an imaginary world full of ‘Bad Boys’ in Stetsons, and reggae rhythms in the grasslands. I Shot the Sheriff was a musical about a group of outlaws who rob a stagecoach and blame the local ‘Navaho’ tribe, leading to complications for its star-crossed romantic leads. Frederick Avella, the carer of one of IMPACT’s learning disabled service users Henry Avella, had this to say: “We thought the production was very professionally designed and choreographed. It is remarkable that they can do this with people with learning disabilities. It was very seriously done and yet extremely funny. It was clear that the actors were enjoying every minute of their performance, as much as the audience.”
