VanAnn Moore brings to life entertainers of the old West

Sopranos and Six-Shooters: Great Ladies of the Old Western Theatre

Sat, Sep 9, 2017, 11:30am - 12:30pm

26301 U.S. 70, Ruidoso Downs, NM 88346, USA

Everyone likes to be entertained, and early days in the old West was no exception! Early theatrical troupes featuring the actresses and singers of the day were always a welcome sight, especially in the mining towns and other places "out-in-the-sticks." Some of the earliest stars who braved the rugged traveling conditions in a stage coach or wagon over mountainous roads and high desert trails were Lillie Langtree, Sarah Bernhardt, Lillian Russell, Lotta Crabtree, and the famous Lola Montez. Primitive conditions often greeted these talented women, and sometimes their audiences wore their six-shooters right into the theatres. In New Mexico there were numerous old Opera Houses in Cerrillos, Raton, Albuquerque, and Socorro. But anywhere a tent or school, saloon or stable could create a "make-shift place," you could have your entertainment. These famous women performers traveled everywhere to give their audiences excitement, diversion and charm that can only be re-imagined in this enticing performance by VanAnn Moore.

This free, public program takes place at the Hubbard Museum of the American West. For more information, call (575)378-4142.
