The Hasty Pudding Theatricals of Harvard University present HPT 157:
Terms of Frontierment. The action begins when we meet Luke N. Forglory, a grizzly young frontiersman who seeks fame and wealth on the open expanse of the old American West. Along with his geeky girl scout sidekick, Wanda Buymycookies, Luke sets out in search of the most valued treasure in the Wild West: the Oregon Grail. Along the way, they join forces with a motley collection of companions, including an old Indian Chief and his daughter Pocahotness, and a love-seeking female buffalo named Alma Stexstinct. But obstacles arise for the treasure-seekers when we learn that the dastardly Rey El Road, a railway tycoon who has been plundering the west for its resources, is looking for the coveted Grail himself.
