TIME TO DIG UP SOME DOWN-RIGHT DRAMATIC TALES

The Matthews Opera House is excited to announce the return of the Rose Hill Cemetery Walk. Amidst the stunning hilltop views of Spearfish, Matthews performers will set the stage outdoors at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Spearfish on June 23 and June 24 at 6:30 pm. Actors dressed in period-appropriate costumes will resurrect early settlers graveside, presenting their personal stories of antics and heroics. Audiences will be entertained by several characters known as “76ers,” persons who came to the Black Hills during the gold rush, one of which who unknowingly shared his campfire beans and flapjacks with
the legendary Calamity Jane. Patrons will also learn about the first person buried at Rose Hill Cemetery, meet the retiring blacksmith that became the first Spearfish postmaster, and listen to “Samson of the Black Hills” tell of his Herculean efforts to complete the large stone barn still standing on Red Water Road.
