Tours of Old Town announces “Old Town Ghost Theater” in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM – Tours of Old Town premiers the first show in their ‘Old Town Ghost Theater’ series, “Outlaw,
Lawman & Ghost ~ Milton J. Yarberry”, on Friday, November 28th at 6:30pm. Hosted by the spirited “ghost” of
Albuquerque’s first town Constable (and the first Lawman in the Country to be convicted and hanged for murder on
February 9, 1883), one-hour shows feature true stories blended with humor and magical effects.

Performances will be held at 6:30pm and 8:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays from November 28th through January 3rd.
Tickets are $10.00 per person and must be purchased in advance by calling (505) 246-TOUR or online at
www.ToursOfOldTown.com. Seating is limited. The Old Town Ghost Theater is located upstairs in Plaza Don Luis –
303 Romero Street NW. Shows are not suggested for children under the age of 10 due to PG rated historical content and
language. Special ½ hour shows for only $5.00 will be held on Friday, December 5th, during the Old Town Holiday Stroll
at 4pm, 5pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm. View the Magic Show trailer at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XddrwuaOtT0.

Julia Brown, President of Tours of Old Town, says “I am thrilled with the Old Town Ghost Theater series. There are so
many interesting people in Albuquerque’s past and we love sharing their stories, with an entertaining twist. The Theater
is perfect for the Holiday Season because we all look for something fun to do in the evenings with our friends and family.
While our nightly Ghost Tour is a fantastic experience, having an indoor venue will be nice alternative for those who are
worried about getting chilled by spending the evenings outdoors.”

Striving for historical accuracy, in-depth researchers and professional entertainers combine to create informative and
unparalleled entertainment value. Brown states, “Our goal is to provide memorable experiences that illustrate the past
history, as well as the current vitality, of the Old Town area. I love it when native Albuquerque residents take our tours
and tell us that they’ve lived here for 30 years and never saw this before or didn’t know that.”
