The Life and Times of Doc Holiday
by Wyatt Earp
As part of the Arts Council’s “Music at the Mansion” performance series, Wyatt Earp will again take the stage for a performance of “The Life and Times of Doc Holiday” on Sunday, August 12, 2012 at the Knickerbocker Mansion.
The famed lawman’s great-grand-nephew, also named Wyatt Earp, gives an insider’s view of Doc Holiday, a man who like the historic Earp, was bigger than life. He tells the “back-story” of the bond between Doc Holiday and the historic Wyatt Earp and their adventures in the final days of the American Frontier.
The contemporary Wyatt Earp is a descendant of the historic Wyatt Earp and has toured throughout the Southwest. He has performed in Alaska, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Budapest, Hungary. The “Scotsman,” a major Edinborough newspaper, gave this one-man play a four-star review, calling it an “authoritative cultural phenomenon.” Last summer, Earp performed “Wyatt Earp: A Life on the Frontier” which was a sold-out performance.
The “Music at the Mansion” series has become a favorite dinner-theater activity as performances are followed by dinner in the Mansion’s beautiful dining room. Tickets for the performance are $20 adults, and $10 students. Dinner is $25 and guests choose from a special menu selected by Chef Thomas and Sous Chef, Robert.
The performance begins at 3:00 pm at the Knickerbocker Mansion, 869 Knickerbocker Road in Big Bear Lake. Reservations for both the performance and dinner are made through the Arts Council at 909-585-5916.
