Since the late 1800s, inhabitants of western Kansas and eastern Colorado have claimed to witness the specter of a woman singing to herself at twilight, as she wanders along a dry, cracked stream-bed known as White Woman Creek.
Some say she was killed, some say she killed herself, others say worse… but to hear the truth, you must hear Anna's song for yourself.

 

A thirteen song cycle of love, betrayal and revenge sung by the ghost of Anna Morgan Faber.

Created and performed by Katie Hartman

Created and directed by Nick Ryan

"A series of magnificent narrative songs, performed just perfectly... An absolute triumph of music, production and mischievous willingness to unnerve."

- Edmonton Journal

"Her voice is a trained heart-tugging tool, and she expertly controls her vast range. Hartman can move from soft murmurs to cries so powerful you’ll need to have some tissues handy for when she really lets loose.

- CBC

"Not only best show of the Winter Mini-Fest, but one of the most moving musicals I've seen in many moons."

-Orlando Weekly

 

The Legend of White Woman Creek is a music-theater piece told from the perspective of a ghost in western Kansas. It weaves a narrative through thirteen original folk songs based on the traditional music that first inspired Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez. It premiered at the 2012 Twin Cities Horror Festival and has performed across North America.
