â€śThe Return of Butch Cassidy; Eyewitness Accountsâ€ť goes where many have gone but few have come away with anything substantial. We begin with a character study of Robert LeRoy Parker, the man the world would come to know as â€śButch Cassidyâ€ť. With narration and re-enactments, we will show how this man was a different cut from the lawless breed that became so well known during the expansion of the American West.
Who was Butch Cassidy?
Until the release of the George Roy Hill motion picture, â€śButch Cassidy and the Sundance Kidâ€ť, most people knew little about the man. Butch Cassidy was just another player, a bad one by most accounts, during the expansion of the American West. The movie changed all that. Butch and his pal Sundance were transformed from anti-heroes into lovable rogues; beloved by the lesser classes and feared by the establishment. In reflecting back, research has revealed that Butch alone just might have lived up to his new billing.
We have successfully put together a team who bring together a range of creative talent to produce an incredibly engaging high quality production. The individuals involved with Butch Cassidy Returns bring extensive backgrounds in historically accurate productions, published historical events, and the ability to create, produce and distribute award winning productions.
