Performance: "An Encounter with Edward Curtis"

Edward Sheriff Curtis was a self-taught photographer with an insatiable taste for adventure who made a name for himself in the late 1800s. In this one-man performance by actor Wyatt Earp, an elderly Curtis is reflecting on his life of adventure and the creation process of his magnum opus, The North American Indian, in the year 1940. Draw a chair up to the campfire and lose yourself in his tales of tragedy and triumph.

An Encounter with Edward Curtis was written and directed by Steve Enyeart. Curtis is played by western actor, Wyatt Earp, who has portrayed his famous relative in his one-man play, “Wyatt Earp: A Life on The Frontier”, numerous times at the Sharlot Hall Museum.

Frontier Christmas

Frontier Christmas is an evening of classic holiday merrymaking at the Sharlot Hall Museum, immediately following the Courthouse Lighting Ceremony. 

Stop by 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. for cookies, cider, crafts, and fun.

Luminarias line the Museum walkways as visitors meander from building to building, visiting with Living History interpreters, meeting Father Christmas, or trying their hand at Victorian-inspired crafts. Families can print their own holiday greeting cards on an 1865 printing press in the Print Shop, or learn an early Prescott school lesson (complete with slates and slate pencils) in the Schoolhouse. Wafting scents from the Ranch House hint at cookies baking and the Governor’s Mansion tree sparkles with nostalgia in its vintage trimmings.

Father Christmas will visit the Museum campus in person to usher in the holiday spirit throughout the evening. Kids (young and old) are invited to make a variety of Christmas crafts to take home, and everyone can enjoy a warm pour of cider and a cookie. The Museum Store stands ready to complete gift lists with thoughtfully-curated items from local artisans.

Don’t miss this fun Christmas event for the whole family!

 $5 adults, free for Museum members & youth 17-under
