About this Event

Sung by the Ghost of Anna Morgan Faber, "The Legend of White Woman Creek" is a one-woman folk opera inspired by a Kansas ghost story.

A one-night only haunting by The Coldharts, a Brooklyn-based theatre company who create devised, music-theatre inspired by the American Gothic, presented by Theatre Artibus at the historic Savoy.

Since the late 1800's, inhabitants of Western Kansas and Eastern Colorado have claimed to have witnessed 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 know the truth, you must hear Anna's song for yourself.

★★★★★ “A series of narrative songs performed just perfectly… An absolute triumph of music, production and a mischievous willingness to unnerve.” Edmonton Journal

★★★★★ “Her voice is a trained heart tugging tool, and she expertly controls her vast range… from soft murmurs to cries so powerful you’ll need to have some tissues handy." -CBC

"The Legend of White Woman Creek" weaves a tale of frontier life and peril through thirteen original folk songs based on the traditional music of the era. A blend of music, history and folklore, the performance explores the roots of American expansionism from the vantage of a spirit unable to rest until she sets the record straight. The work explores immigration, racism, violence, and community from a feminine perspective.

Created and performed by Katie Hartman.

Created and directed by Nick Ryan.

Tickets are pay-what-you-can ($15+ suggested donation). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for drinks and libations. Show begins at 7 p.m.

Presented by Theatre Artibus, a Denver-based theatre company whose mission is to transform the historic Savoy at Curtis Park into a center for intimate, original performances of all genres.

In the summer of 2019, the Coldharts embark upon "The Broken Union Tour," a grassroots, theatre and house concert tour of "The Legend of White Woman Creek" starting in the easternmost city of the United States, and traveling west through the upper Midwest, to the Edmonton and Vancouver International Fringe Festivals, and then from Bellingham to Baltimore and places in between.
