Haunted Mountain Theater

Haunted Mountain Theater Logo

The Rockies are filled with ghastly historical events, unsettling tales, and supernatural creatures that are beyond our mortal comprehension. At Museum of the Rockies, come face to face with these spine-tingling stories that haunt this region and our nightmares.

Haunted Mountain Theater brings the Northern Rocky Mountains’ spookier history and folklore to life through an approximately 50-minute production that blends live-theater with the museum’s Taylor Planetarium’s state-of-the-art capabilities. Based on authentic research, this year’s pilot production includes traditional legends, mining tragedies, natural disasters, unsolved murders, and more. They all prove one thing...sometimes life is scarier than fiction!

This production's lead actor is John Hosking. John received his B.A. in Theatre Arts from Montana State University and is a Hilberry Graduate Fellow (Wayne State University). As a young actor, he performed with Montana’s Shakespeare in the Parks in its first two years and with the Virginia City Players from 1976-1981. While touring the Pacific Northwest with A Contemporary Theatre (ACT) of Seattle, John was involved with ACT’s Theatre for Young Audiences and Main Stage and was invited to perform at the Kennedy Center. Returning to Montana, John co-founded the Vigilante Theatre Company with fellow actor Rhonda Smith in 1981, and in 1993 he was a member of the Founding Board of the Emerson Cultural Center in Bozeman, Montana. John has also performed in regionally produced films and continues to assist with student films at MSU.
