Check out our IndieGoGo campaign to support the final development of Tombstone: A Cardboard Western. We need your help to get the show ready to launch this spring in Whitehorse.
For over two years we have been developing Tombstone, a science fiction western puppet show made almost entirely out of cardboard.
Tombstone mashes the genres of science fiction and westerns and blends the worlds of puppetry and film. While the performers scramble to keep up with the onstage action the science fiction western B movie that they are creating seamlessly unfolds on the screen above their heads.
Part Rube Goldberg machine, part spaghetti western, Tombstone brings the world of sci-fi together with cardboard, puppetry and live action film-making.

We keep things simple and count as our most trusted materials: hot glue, cardboard and magnets. No matter what the content of the production our starting place is: How do we create this work physically with what we have at hand? If we can’t build it from found materials, buy it cheap or borrow it, we tell the story simply.
Since 2006 Ramshackle Theatre has been presenting and touring original work. Under the Artistic Directorship of Brian Fidler the company has presented two productions at the Summerworks Performance Festival (The Cloaker and the Cabinet 2007, Broken 2012), brought our production Sci-Fi Double Feature to Victoria, Vancouver, The Banff Centre for the Arts and to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and toured the solo play Broken about Alzheimer’s Disease, across the country.
