Irish Tales along the Trails

A hiking play presented by Arts in the Open

July 7 – August 5

Chautauqua Picnic Shelter
Tickets: *$20.00 ($17.00 Concert Member), $18.00 Colorado Mountain Club Member & $15.00 Children under 10
Prepare yourselves for a journey of the imagination, as we venture to the Emerald Isle for stories of wit and whimsy! Lively lads and lionhearted lassies test their brains and bravery in stories guaranteed to delight the entire family. May the road rise up to meet you and the wind be always at your back as you hike along with these courageous Celtic characters.

Audience and actors meet at the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter and take a moderate hike on the Enchanted Mesa Trail while scenes from the play are performed along the way. Approximate length of the hike is two miles with an elevation gain of 400 feet.
Audience members are encouraged to bring camping chairs and/or blankets and mats to sit on while watching the scenes. Water, sunscreen and hats are suggested. Comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are strongly encouraged. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under the Picnic Shelter.

Buy early! Each hike is capped at low numbers and tends to sell out in advance. 

Recommended for ages six (6) and older.
