Some dirty deeds afoot this summer at the Old-Fashioned Melodrama in Cheyenne

I write about this event because I'm a volunteer, both in the front of the house and on stage. On Saturday, I will be the show's emcee while my wife Chris works the box office. Summers in Cheyenne are made for volunteering and many people do just that. Hundreds of them. Many of them serve as ushers and parade marshals and clean-up crew for Cheyenne Frontier Days. Others are emcees or olio entertainers or barkeeps for the melodrama. Pick your poison -- lots to do, and much fun to be had.

In reality, it takes hundreds and maybe thousands of people to make a city work. It takes everyone.
