Sedona Heritage Museum – Shenanigans & Skullduggery
Featuring Michael Peach
February 3rd, 2018 (1:30 pm – 2:30 pm)
Cost: $6
An award-winning actor, playwright, and historian, Michael Peach is especially good at bringing to life history and his subjects. But, he isn’t afraid to spin some tall tales, too. Informative and entertaining, Mike’s shows have long been a favorite of university, state and national parks, and historically-oriented audiences. Peach’s shows feature his unique blend of original cowboy poetry with a tongue-in-cheek look at Arizona and local history, also incorporating jokes, stories, and first person narrative. This new show both exposes and pokes fun at quirky incidents from Arizona politics and law. “In those bold and bloody days of the Arizona Territory, a prudent man kept his gun near at hand. It was considered mandatory. For the need to avenge one’s honor was frequently insistent. And the presence of the law out here was rare to non-existent.” quotes Peach. For more information please visit the Sedona Heritage Museum.
