Texans fight back when a Communist threat comes from out-of-state. Set in 1950s Houston, this farce tells the mostly-true story of a mid-century-modern tar and feathering. Pinko folkies, sex educators, and foreign spies are rooted out in this red-baiting musical comedy.

Based on the actual takeover of the Houston school board by the Minute Women (a group of suburban anti-Communist crusaders), this show chronicles a witch hunt that occurred amidst fears of Soviet agents and nuclear attack. Blacklists are compiled, books are banned and bomb shelters are dug in this musical comedy with a live band.

The newest addition to the “Texas History Musicals” series (following Prohibition, Murders & Moontowers and The True Story of Bonnie and Clyde), Red Scare looks at a divided Texas in the early 1950s. Created by John Cecil and Texas Comedies.
