Words of praise for this Poker Alice living history presentation:

“In working with Liz over the years it is obvious she is a master storyteller, who takes no shortcuts in bringing her characters to life.  Through her countless hours of research she knows her characters inside and out and her talent for bringing those characters to life is evident the moment she steps onto the stage.” — Dianne Hartshorn, Blanches Place, I Love Colorado History

“Poker Alice is not only a character, but a darn fine character. Book her for your next group event!!” Don Moon, actor and historian, Theodore Roosevelt Presenter and Re-enactor

“”Thank you ‘Poker Alice’ for making history fun and interesting! A big thumbs-up! Liz gets into character and really knows her stuff! She is dressed as a younger Poker Alice, and toward the end she changes her hair to a white wig, a hat and shawl. She starts out holding a big stogie and 4 playing cards, all aces. She asks a person to pull a card and her story is built on the cards as they are pulled. She periodically drinks from a flask claiming it is lemonade. No stammering, no ‘I forgot to mention…” It is a real person that Liz is reenacting, most of the history is in Colorado and a couple places in South Dakota. She does a very good job and is very improvisational. This is a presentation you will want to see and experience!” — Judy K., member, Western Museum of Mining and Industry
