    What to Expect
    Visit: Deadwood Alive, 715 Main Street, Deadwood, SD 57732

    Witness the infamous trial of the man who killed Wild Bill Hickok. The Trial of Jack McCall is an entertaining, family-friendly play where audience members may be chosen to participate as members of the jury during the trial.

    On August 2, 1876, Wild Bill Hickok was playing a poker game with his back to the door. Jack McCall, apparently resentful from losing several hands of poker the previous day, entered Nuttal and Mann's and shot Wild Bill in the back of the head, killing him instantly. McCall attempted to flee by running from the saloon and trying to steal a horse but was eventually found hiding and apprehended.

    This hour long play re-enacts the capture and trial of Jack McCall on Main Street in Deadwood six days a week.

    A lot of fun for our whole family. Our four children were included in the ‘trial’. It’s was immensely entertaining and I recommend a visit. Be sure to catch the saloon experience as well.

    Best entertainment value in Deadwood if you enjoy live theatre. Audience participation and impromptu interaction with actors was both entertaining and thought-provoking. Timing of show worked well - immediately following street show.

    We enjoyed the trial. There is historic content mixed with humor. Even the kids there seemed to enjoy it. The actors are the same people who perform the street shootout. It is worth your while if in the area. I believe we saw the last show of the season. You can purchase tickets
