About The Legend of White Woman Creek
Co-Presented with The Coldharts

Since the late 1800's, inhabitants of western Kansas and eastern Colorado have claimed to have seen and heard the specter of a woman singing to herself at twilight, as she wanders along a dry, cracked stream-bed known as White Woman Creek. Some say she was killed, some say she killed herself, others say worse… but to hear the truth, you must hear Anna's song for yourself. The Legend of White Woman Creek is a music-theatre piece inspired by a ghost story that weaves a tale of frontier life and peril through thirteen original folk songs, based on the traditional music of the era.
