Mile High Comedy Theater presents an evening of comedic entertainment in Prescott never before combined in one show.

Using suggestions from the audience, the Mile High Comedy Theater troupe spontaneously creates scenes and funny scenarios that will keep you laughing throughout the entire performance.
The cast is filled with local and hilarious talent:  Michael James, Dedrick Kline, Brent Nielsen, Annie O'Connor, Cisco Ortiz, Jantina Russell and Jennifer Tobin.  Stand-up comedy acts to be announced.

Treasure hunters have been captivated by accounts of the Dutchman Jacob Waltz's life and the whereabouts of his hidden gold mine. Can any tale be more compelling than that long unsolved mystery of millions of dollars of gold lost deep in the Superstition Mountains? The REAL story will keep you on the edge of your seat! Parish's new book examines the tangled trail of truth and fiction that is Waltz's legacy. It tells the tale of a man and his shadowy, previously-overlooked partner, who cheat, connive, manipulate and murder their way through the wicked old west, leaving a trail of blood, bodies and broken promises that over the years have been lost in the wake of the commonly accepted family-friendly legend.

THE PRESCOTT OPRY

PRESCOTT OPRY
PRESS PACKET
SEPTEMBER 11, 2014
 
Ed Gary, General manager of the Prescott Opry and a notable recording artist in his own right, is always on the look-out for acts that will ”Surprise & Delight” our audiences.  This month’s show is the perfect example of just that caliber of entertainment.  September’s performance holds a new and exciting Country Bluegrass group that is sure to please, and the return of two artists that were sensations when they graced our stage in 2012 & 2013!
 
CINDER MOUNTAIN
Cinder Mountain is an upbeat, high energy, Phoenix-based Country Bluegrass group whose music is centered around the tight harmonies of John Bragg, John Harris, Gayle Harris and Karen Harris.  This group’s love of the traditional Country Bluegrass, as well as gospel music, is reflected in a high lonesome style that is uniquely their own.
 
DENISE HARDY
The Prescott Opry is delighted to FINALLY be able to bring back our very first Featured Female Artist, Denise Hardy!  She graced our stage in our inaugural performance in May 2012 and high demand for this dynamic Valley songstress has kept her from returning sooner.  Come prepared to be surprised and delighted as Denise pays homage to such Country female vocalists as Trisha Yearwood, Tanya Tucker, Lorie Morgan and Gretchen Wilson!  She does a sassy cover of Earnest Tubb’s “Thanks, Thanks a Lot” as well…
 
J. L. PIKE
Speaking of high energy, J. L.’s previous performances have had our audiences rockin’ in the aisles with his rock-a-billie versions of familiar tunes.  Always a crowd pleaser, we are thrilled to be able to bring him to you once again for a performance that is sure to have you “happy dancing” in your seats!
 
BRUSH ARBOR REVIVAL
Always a Prescott favorite, our Bluegrass Gospel Band, brings the joyful sounds that our audiences can’t get enough of, as well as their own brand of family-friendly humor.  John, Peggy, Anita and Ted have planned sets that include both new material and some of their most requested favorites.
 
GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY! 
With folks from the Valley escaping the heat by visiting our beautiful community, seats are now at a premium.  Still the best entertainment deal around at just $17, Senior & Student discounts are available!  Money saving coupons are available through Money-in-the-Mail and Prescott Dining & Entertainment booklets.
 
Come join us at the beautifully restored Prescott Elks Theater & Performing Arts Center in downtown Prescott! Call the Theater today at 777-1370 or visit them online at prescottelkstheater.com to reserve your tickets now…

The 2014 AHS/AIPG Symposium and National Meeting will be hosted by the Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS) and the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG). AIPG, a national organization, founded in 1963, is the largest association dedicated to promoting geology as a profession. It presently has more than 6,000 members in the U.S. and abroad. The Institute adheres to the principles of professional responsibility and public service and is the only international organization that certifies the competence and ethical conduct of geological scientists in all branches of the science with members employed in industry, government, and academia. Formed in 1985, the Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS) is a nonprofit scientific organization dedicated to advancing hydrology and water resource research, planning, and development. We not only provide an open forum for professionals to exchange information, but we also support public understanding, education, and training in the science and technology of hydrology and water resources. An important part of AHS’s mission is promoting the responsible use, management, and preservation of water resources in the arid southwest. AHS is also dedicated to helping establish standards for the practice of hydrology as a profession. To support these goals, AHS funds meetings, scholarships, grants, symposia, and other outreach and (or) educational activities. The AHS membership consists of hydrologists, hydrogeologists, geologists, geochemists, water quality specialists, chemists, biologists, ecologists, and engineers working for consulting firms, other industries, governmental agencies (Federal, state, county, and municipal), nongovernmental organizations, and educational institutions and organizations. AHS consists of three chapters covering the State of Arizona - Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson. The 2014 symposium will focus on geology and hydrology and will encourage active exchange of ideas between the many disciplines represented. This exchange will take place through plenary sessions, technical sessions, workshops, and an estimated 10-12 field trips to locations in northern Arizona typically within about 2-3 hours travel time. Some field trips will have a duration of 1/2 day, others will be full-day trips. More than half of these field trips will be of a technical nature; however, we anticipate having several field trips for the family members of symposium attendees.

Seatbelts Required at Stage Too!

SEATBELTS REQUIRED Or The Play I Wrote To Piss-off My Sisters
by Kimberley Demmary
Directed by Frank Malle

After their mother’s funeral, three sisters gather at their childhood home and try to come to terms with the destruction their mother brought to their lives.  In the process of clearing out the family home, they find themselves reevaluating everything they thought they knew about their childhoods, themselves and each other. As the afternoon progresses, they are shocked to discover that their divergent memories, old hurts and long held resentments have created the toughest save-or-toss project of their lives.  The sisters hesitantly try to connect through remembered laughter and shared sorrow of living with their alcoholic and thrice married mother, and the ongoing damage she caused to their lives. As sometimes harrowing memories are brought to the surface, they struggle to realize that, though they have been wounded, they are connected by a deeply shared bond and they can only look to each other for healing.  

The Cast for SEATBELTS REQUIRED:

Janet...........Julie Harrington

 Agnes.........Amber Bosworth

 Maggie..................Allie Elliott

Pauline Weaver Rendezvous and Frontier Skills Enca

This is both an educational and fun event for people of all ages. Families are encouraged to attend. It is called a "Rendezvous", the historic name for a gathering and celebration held by mountain men during the early 1800's. Often time local Indian tribes joined in the trading and competitive events were held. "Pauline Weaver was a mountain man who roamed our local Prescott Mountains. During the ten days there will be demonstrations of blacksmithing, candle and soap making, weaving, spinning, Dutch oven and open pit cooking. Many will include hands-on participation. There will be plant walks to learn about our local foliage, hawk and knife throwing, and black powder shooting for all levels of experience.

Fees for an individual camp for the entire event is $40, family $60, or a weekend individual camp $25, and family $40.
 
Please visit us on for a day as well and join in the fun of reliving history. Walk in the steps of Pauline Weaver and Joe Walker.
