Sedona AZ (February 22, 2012) – The Sedona Heritage Museum presents “A Conversation with Governor Hunt”, with Don Shields at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 3. This is another in a series of events at the Museum in celebration of Arizona’s centennial year.
Enjoy this special re-enactment of Arizona’s first governor, George W.P. Hunt from 1912. Don Shields bears a striking likeness to the first governor as well as a voice and mannerisms reminiscent of the man. Utilizing extensive research (including interviews with Hunt family members), Shields presents stories of those first few years, the struggle to statehood, and the growth of the Baby State. After the show, he will enter into a dialogue with the audience.
Don Shields has 34 years of teaching English, drama and speech behind him in his preparation of this 45 minute presentation.
Shields has shared the stage with Arizona government dignitaries and spoke at the AZ Best Fest in Prescott last September. Marshall Trimble, the Arizona State Historian wrote, “Don, I declare you are the reincarnation of ol’ George W.P. Keep up the good work.”
The show is appropriate for all ages. Free.
