Navasota’s history runs deep with a connection to the infamous Bonnie and Clyde Story, who was home to Frank Hamer, the City Marshal in the early 1900s, also known as the lawman who later led the 1934 posse that tracked down and killed Bonnie and Clyde.
“We’re excited to bring this particular show to Navasota to pay homage to Navasota’s history with the Bonnie & Clyde story,” says Bobbie Lehrmann, Marketing & Communications Director.
About the show: Bonnie & Clyde
In this irreverent new musical comedy about the notorious Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, a man obsessed with Bonnie, pursues the two gangsters relentlessly.
This “mostly true” one-hour show with a live band is based on postman-turned-deputy Ted Hinton’s memoir, as well as newspaper and crime magazine stories of the 1930s.
