Joining us for an evening of murder and mayhem? On October 24, 2019, you’ll hear true stories of crimes in Skagit and Whatcom Counties during the early twentieth century. Everything from public hangings, husbands killing wives, wives killing husbands, and strangers coming to town. Filled with intrigue and rich, true history, this is a glimpse into the darker side of humanity, all from the safety of your theatre seat.
Todd Warger is the author of a series of true crime stories that take place in Washington State’s northwest corner.
“Our region has had a vivid history of slayings much like anywhere else, including beheadings, shootings, stabbings, poisonings, hangings, strangling, and bludgeoning,” Warger says.
Warger is on the staff of Whatcom Museum, is an Emmy Award-winning nominee for the documentary film “The Mountain Runners,” a history of Bellingham’s famous Ski to Sea Race. He’s also a recipient of the Washington State Historical Society’s David Douglas Award for the documentary film “Shipyard,” and is co-author of “Images of America: Mount Baker.”
Sponsored by the Concrete Chamber of Commerce, and hosted by the Concrete Theatre, the proceeds from this event will benefit the Concrete Heritage Museum. The event is funded in part by a grant from Skagit County, to encourage visitors to our area.
