Benchtalk: October 28, 2016

Boo!

Halloween is kind of a big holiday in Crested Butte. There are kids’ parades, Rocky Horror Picture Shows, Zombie Proms, adult parties, Monster Mashes. The cops really love Halloween in CB. So please be careful out there this weekend and into Monday. Lots of little ghosts and goblins will be scampering around the streets so be aware.

Art opening for Mergelman at Lucas Gallery November 4

The Lucille Lucas Gallery presents the paintings of award-winning Gunnison native Rudl Mergelman. Rudl is a descendant of two Colorado pioneer families and was raised in the heart of the open range of Western Colorado. Ranching, fixing fencing, irrigating, putting up hay and helping friends move cattle all over the Gunnison Country were just a part of his life and naturally subjects for his art. Meet the artist and join in welcoming this prolific and talented artist back to the Gunnison County art scene at the First Friday Art Walk November 4 from 5 to 9 p.m. at 126 North Main St. Gunnison. Call 641-4100 for more information.

Return of the Dead at the GAC with Halloween Old Time Radio Theatre 

Be afraid. Be very afraid. On Halloween weekend the Gunnison Arts Center unleashes the monster of monsters in the Black Box Theatre. You may just find that there’s little difference between one who attempts to create life and the creature that results in Mary Shelly’s story of Frankenstein’s monster, plus a giant spider the size of a horse and even a mad scientist’s reincarnated wife! Turn Back the Dial presents all three plays in the intensely personal reader’s theatre style this Friday and Saturday, October 28 and 29. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the curtain goes up at 7:30 p.m. Wear your best costume on Saturday night for the costume contest! Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for kids 12 and under and seniors aged 60 and over.
