THE WITCHES FROM Baldy Mountain tauntingly tell Conur Man of their plan to win the life of Barbara Allen.
DESPITE THE COLD December wind and rain
outside "Dark of the Moon" opened December
5 to an almost full capacity receptive crowd.
Again the next night the play was presented to
another rain soaked crowd.
"Dark of the Moon" is the story of a witch boy
named John who falls in love with a beautiful
mortal, Barbara Allen. Through the course of
the play John is changed to a mortal by the Con-
jur Woman, under one condition, that he marry
Barbara. But John is warned by the Conjur
Woman - "She got'a be true to you boy, faith-
ful fer a year. If that gal go off wit another man,
you'll find yer eagle flying down from Old
Baldy for - you'll be a witch again."
Barbara is unfaithful to John. She dies and John
goes back to live with the witch gals of Baldy
"HIT THE END a the singin'. Ain't nothing left. None a the words." Says John to the
dead form of Barbara Allen.
Here’s what’s next.
