2014-12-21 14.44.36 Mike fixed

An award-winning actor, playwright, and historian, Michael Peach is especially good at bringing to life history and his subjects. But, he isn’t afraid to spin some tall tales, too. Informative and entertaining, Mike’s shows have long been a favorite of university, state and national parks, and historically-oriented audiences.

Peach’s shows feature his unique blend of original cowboy poetry with a tongue-in-cheek look at Arizona and local history, also incorporating jokes, stories, and first person narrative.

This new show both exposes and pokes fun at quirky incidents from Arizona politics and law. “In those bold and bloody days of the Arizona Territory, a prudent man kept his gun near at hand. It was considered mandatory. For the need to avenge one’s honor was frequently insistent. And the presence of the law out here was rare to non-existent.” quotes Peach.

The show is about an hour long. Tickets are $6, with children under 12 free. Museum admission is separate.

Pumpkin Bread/Monday at the Museum Workshop @ Sedona Heritage Museum

Nothing wakes up the autumn senses quite like something yummy baking in the oven, especially a homemade loaf of freshly baked pumpkin quick bread.

It’s a perfect breakfast treat for Halloween morning or for your Thanksgiving visitors! This is a great project for inexperienced bakers and for kids (6 and up with adult supervision), and more experienced bakers will learn some tricks for getting the best results. Each participant will take home a loaf pan with prepared batter to bake! Unless you don’t mind a little flour on your clothes, please bring an apron with you. All other supplies will be provided. $7 fee will be collected. RSVP at (928) 282-7038.
“Monday at the Museum” is a workshop/ demonstration held every Monday; please call for a current schedule. The Museum is always looking for participants who are willing to share their knowledge of “old time” crafts and skills. For details, call at 282-7038.

Painted Desert – Mayhem, Death & Destruction on the Movie Set/Living History @ Sedona Heitage Museum
Oct 10 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

A series of tragedies on a 1930 movie set in Arizona leaves dead and injured, including Sedona’s first USFS Ranger. Joe Meehan, Curator at the Pioneer Museum in Flagstaff, will share the story of a Hollywood movie made up near Cameron that literally had mayhem, death, and destruction – although they did not plan it that way, and it was only intended to be a minor part of the plot.

Billy Wallace, Sedona’s first Forest Server Ranger, survived being wounded on San Juan Hill with Teddy Roosevelt in 1898, only to be almost killed in 1930 making a movie. How’s that for irony?
