Three performances of “The Last Duel in Bastrop” will be held at the historic Bastrop Opera House in Bastrop, Texas in June 2023. The Friday and Saturday night include dinner. Sunday is a matinee performance.

It was an affair of honor. In 1907 Col. J.C. Edmonds, beloved Superintendant of Bastrop Schools, believed his daughter had been shamed and humiliated by R.A. Brooks, Assistant Postmaster and a respected attorney. An apology was demanded but refused. The affair was settled with guns on Main Street in what came to be the last duel in Bastrop.

Featuring members of the Bastrop County Bar Association including: District Judge Christopher Duggan, Joe Grady Tuck, Bryan McDaniel, Caroline McClimon, Kay Rogers, Ernie Bogart, Jim Brymer, Jacob Dannen and Sheriff Maurice Dook, and others including Bastrop County Sheriff’s Captain E. C. “Joey” Sherman, retired Children’s Advocacy Center Director Terry Beattie, former City Council member Dock Jackson, students Greyson Brevelle and Madelyn Poston

This is a special event (not included in season tickets) and is the annual fundraiser for the Bobby Jenkins Scholarships.
