Colorado history comes alive in this one-man costumed presentation

Post Date:09/27/2017 9:00 am

 

Buffalo Bill Experience at the LSC Slider

The legendary figure of the Wild West, William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody, comes to the Longmont Senior Center on Friday, October 6th courtesy of the Friends of the Senior Center. As the assistant public programs coordinator of the History Colorado Museum puts it: "...it is by far the best representation of Buffalo Bill we have seen. ...it feels as though Norman brings this icon back to life, the room suddenly steps back in time to the late 19th to early 20th centuries." Don't miss this special senior (55+) performance. Advance registration is required for this free event, so please call the LSC at 303-651-8411 to RSVP. 

Buffalo Bill is a local larger-than-life historical figure who founded the town of Cody, Wyoming and lived many of his later years in Denver, Colorado only to be laid to rest eternally on Lookout Mountain in Golden, Co. The Buffalo Bill Experience will take you back in time. It is "EDU-tainment" that's chock full of all the wagon train driving, Army scouting, and Pony Express riding adventures that made Buffalo Bill an American icon. Gathering legendary friends like Wild Bill Hickok, Kit Carson, Annie Oakley, General George Armstrong Custer, and Sitting Bull along the way. Modeled after Hal Holbrook's one-man play, "Mark Twain," Jeff Norman colorfully portrays Buffalo Bill's amazing rags-to-riches-to-rags life, blending equal parts humor, drama, and little-known historical anecdotes. One of Colorado's favorite historical figures comes alive in this colorful costumed presentation.
