Sedona AZ (October 17, 2013) – The Sedona Heritage Museum presents Michael Peach in a special and spooky performance of “Haunted Halloween”, on Saturday October 27 at 3:00 p.m. in their historic Fruit Packing Shed.
Come spend an autumn afternoon at the Museum and hear ghostly tales – soome of which have their origins right in our own back yard! Peach will read a classic, comical ghost story by Charles Dickens, and will share two more true stories about ghostly encounters. Also on the play bill are four of Mike’s original poems: The Hauntings of the Red Ghost (a rogue camel terrorizes central Arizona in the latter 1800s), The Ghosts of Wilson Canyon (encounters with the spirits of bear hunter Richard Wilson, his dog, and a very angry bear), Little Bill (the true story of an unsolved murder in Sedona’s red rock canyons), and Waggin’ the Dragon’s Tale (the story of how two Arizona ranchers allegedly killed a dragon outside of Tombstone).
Mike plans to also share an anecdote about his mother’s encounter with a ghost at the El Tovar Hotel at the Grand Canyon, and a personal favorite by Gail Gardner called The Sierry Petes or Tyin’ Knots in the Devil’s Tail (two cowboys claim to have met the devil and bested him). The program is centered on encounters with the ghosts of people, furniture and wildlife, and monsters and demons conjured by inebriation and imagination.
Peach is an award-winning actor and playwright. Hear him use historical narrative, cowboy poetry, and tongue-in-cheek fun to weave these stories of mischief and mirth and mystery.
The show is about an hour long and appropriate for all audiences. This is a special one-time performance in honor of Halloween.
