Jan. 15, 2014 - PRLog -- Actor Rudy Ramos brings Apache leader Geronimo alive in his one-man play, “Geronimo, Life on the Reservation” which will premier as part of The High Chaparral Reunion in Tucson, Ariz., on March 22nd at Casino del Sol.  The play is written by award-winning author Janelle Meraz-Hooper and directed by actor/director Steve Railsback.

In this presentation, Ramos takes us through the period in Geronimo’s life as a POW at Fort Sill Indian Reservation in Oklahoma.  As he chats with the audience, Geronimo displays the humor, genius and resiliency of the renowned Apache leader who adapts to his role of surrendered warrior by evolving into an entrepreneur and celebrity.  Geronimo takes the white man to task on a new battleground.  Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased here:

Rudy Ramos began his acting career in 1969 with a guest role on Ironside.  Shortly thereafter, he was cast as Wind, a half-white/half-Pawnee Indian in the fourth season of the iconic Western series The High Chaparral.  In addition to an extensive list of theater credits, he has appeared in more than 60 television shows including recurring roles on Hunter and Resurrection Boulevard; he has also appeared in films with Clint Eastwood (The Enforcer), Ryan O’Neal (The Driver), Jan-Michael Vincent (Defiance)  and Kevin Bacon (Quicksilver).

Ramos’ appearance is only one of many events planned for The High Chaparral Reunion, which gathers cast, crew and fans under one roof from March 20-23 at Casino del Sol for a weekend of stories, question and answer panels, episode screenings, a visit to Old Tucson Studios and much more.

Other guests include Don Collier (Sam Butler) who will present “An Evening with Don Collier;” production manager Kent McCray and wife Susan, who worked in the casting department; Kiva Lawrence-Hoy, wife of legendary stuntman and actor Bob Hoy; Stan Ivar (Little House on the Prairie:  A New Beginning); Neil Summers (stuntman, author and Western memorabilia collector); and Boyd Magers, author and editor of Western Clippings Magazine.  The Vinnie Falcone Trio will perform live during the Sponsor dinner Friday, March 21st.

The High Chaparral, which aired from 1967 to 1971 on NBC, centers on Big John Cannon and his dream to carve a ranch out of the Arizona territory.  The show is historic because it cast Latino and Native American actors in roles that broke stereotypes, a first for the television industry during the time of the Civil Rights movement.
