El Pueblo History Museum in downtown Pueblo will be hosting the very first performance of a new locally-produced musical titled “Ludlow… Love Labor Loss”. The Pueblo-produced musical premiers at El Pueblo Saturday, June 29th.

The subject of this play is the Ludlow Massacre, an infamous and important event in Colorado history. In 1914, the Colorado National Guard and guards employed by the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company attacked a tent colony of 1,200 coal miners and their families at Ludlow, Colorado. More than twenty people, including two women and twelve children, were killed.

“Ludlow… Love Labor Loss” retells this story using words from the victims of the massacre, combined with a fictional love story. Local performing artist Kennedy Pugh conceived and produced this musical. Dianne Brooks developed the story and wrote the lyrics. The music was composed by local musician Ed Hill.

Here’s a cast photo of some of the local child actors who will be starring in the show, wearing their period accurate costumes. Left to right: Hanna Maurer, Zeb Woelfle, Harry DeCesaro, Roxie Woelfle, Jackson Kochevar.

These performances are free and open to the public, premiering June 29th. El Pueblo Museum is located at 301 North Union Ave.
