Tickets: $20.00 ($17.00 Concert Member)*, $18.00 Colorado Mountain Club Member & $15.00 Children under 10
For many, the haunted stories around Colorado are just that—stories. Recently, however, those stories appear to be coming to life. For a media-hungry “Ghost Hunter,” this is an opportunity of a lifetime. One that cannot be passed up. For a Paranormal Detective and their Assistant, it’s just another day at the oﬃce. Three ghostly cases bring these individuals together to answer the question—Are these real, honest to goodness gGhosts, or are they simply ﬁgments of our imagination? You, the audience, will help to ﬁnd the answer and choose how the stories truly unfold. But more importantly, the answer to why toast falls butter-side down will be revealed.
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 and comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are strongly encouraged. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter.
Buy early! Each hike is capped at low numbers and tends to sell out in advance. Recommended for ages eight (8) and older.
