What we do


 Roughrider Total Entertainment presents BE A STAR! This is just a small part of a larger concept to make your next team builder or company summit something to remember. Using the talents of our crew of experienced entertainers, The Roughriders are willing to make your CEO, Top Salesperson, Team Lead or anyone the Star in this short film. A little movie magic promises to show that whoever you choose will be “The Stranger” and your crew the obvious heroes. Add to this meeting opener, our proven team builder entertainments as part of your event. This means your theme is set and each of your team members will go home refreshed and ready to make their own magic going forward.  

Take a look at the trailer below.


Roughriders Dying Contest


 The Roughriders will come to your party, select (3) random individuals (unless of course you know some more well deserving individuals) and line them up for a death defying competition. Those chosen participants (3) will be shot on site, of course with blanks. As they fake their way to their untimely end on a safety pad, they will be judged by their peers for the most entertaining death 

Breakin’ the Law Bus Hold Up



Arriving by bus? How about a welcome that truly takes your guests by surprise? Picture two lawmen walking out into the road halting your buses by a flurry of gunfire and then boarded. They are there for one purpose, to find the individuals that have been predetermined. After introducing themselves and welcoming everyone, the suspects will be identified and announced that they are being arrested. Then the suspects will be removed at gunpoint and hauled off of the bus to your party’s location. Number of performers will vary upon the amount of buses.



 Have your party honorees, manager, CEO or entire executive committee arrested by Marshal Hannibal, and back-up if need be. Arrests come complete with a frame worthy arrest warrant, a trial and a first class hanging … well just a bit of embarrassment instead of the hanging.  

Story Telling


 When sitting around a fire the one thing that makes you feel like you’re out on the trail is some classic western story telling. Let one of The Arizona Roughriders come out to your “campsite” and tell you some tales of the old west
