"Yesterado" will usher you back in time to see Colorado history as you never have before! Pulled from the pulp of late nineteenth century newspapers, this sharp, fun slice of showmanship uses stories of con man Soapy Smith, socialite Molly Brown, and cyclist Dora Rinehart to create a living, breathing portrait of our state when it was still cutting its teeth. Duration is 55 minutes plus a 10 minute introduction to characters from "The Impossible Paradise," an original play written to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Funding for "Yesterado" was made possible by a generous grant from The Rotary Club of Estes Park Foundation Inc.
