Sweet Aspen (Julia Hammel) can’t understand how it could have happened. Sheriff Jack (Andy McKim) lovingly assures her he is on the case and all will be saved.
Sexy Chiffon Delure (Yvonne Loop) is in cahoots with Sleazy and is positive the current mayorial election will fall their way. Mrs. Grisley/Pickles (Ellen Cox), well, she’s not sure of anything let alone who she is from one moment to the next.
Set in the Four Corners area sometime in the 1880’s, it is an hilarious evening well spent. “Stop the Presses” is another well-written script, produced by Pioneer Drama Services, Englewood ,CO.

The Treasure of Shiver River
September 19th 2:00 pm & 20th 5:00 pm
7th Annual Melodrama The Treasure of Shiver River This is the freshest old-fashioned mellerdramer we’ve seen, and it’s laugh out loud funny, to boot! All the traditional plot elements are here. From the nasty scoundrel Rod Enreel, who will soon take over the Shiver River Ranch and find the hidden treasure if Colonel Sanders can’t sell his cattle to come up with the mortgage money, to heroic Marshal Marshall Law, who would love to propose to Heidi Claire, the colonel’s daughter, yet he can’t. And yes, there’s always the vile option for Heidi to marry the black-hearted villain, though he only plans to do her in and abscond with the treasure and his romance novel-loving partner-in-crime, Paige Turner. Ah, but did we mention that our villain doesn’t have a good evil laugh and has to appoint an Evil Laugher from the audience? Or that Marshal and Heidi wonder curiously why they hear romantic music every time they’re in a scene together? Both your cast and your audience will love all the show-stealing roles, such as a pirate queen, a semi-reformed female gambler and an auctioneer who’s tricked into thinking he’s a dog by a con artist with as many accents as the United Nations. $10 Adults under 10 Free

12/17/11 Saturday 6:00 pm 12/18/11 Sunday 4:00 pm Live Theatre: "A Tuna Christmas"
a live theatre production by: The San Luis Valley Theatre Company Saguache, Colorado
11/19 7:00 pm Live Theatre : "I AM MY OWN WIFE"
a live theatre production by The Stage Left Theatre Company Salida Colorado
I Am My Own Wife was the first one-person show ever to win a Pulitzer Prize, which it did in 2004. The main character of Doug Wright's award-winning play is a German transvestite, who goes on to become a celebrity in his/her own right, to the point of being declared by some a national German hero. The play was published in 2004 by Faber and Faber. Wright, who is included in the more than forty characters portrayed (by one man), went to Germany in 1993 to meet and record conversations with the real Charlotte von Mahlsdorf (born Lothar Berfelde), upon whose life the play is based. The playwright struggled for several years after meeting with Charlotte, trying to conceptualize how to turn the material he had into a play. There were so many different facets of Charlotte's life, including some that were not very flattering—among them, news stories that confirmed that Charlotte had been a Nazi spy.
Wright called together two of his closest friends and brainstormed with them. Those friends were Moisés Kaufman, an award-winning director who would go on to direct the play, and Jefferson Mays, who would astonish audiences with his versatility in acting out all forty or more characters and eventually capture his own award, the Tony. I Am My Own Wife tells a story that spans Charlotte's childhood in the 1930s through the erection (1961) and deconstruction (1989–1990) of the Berlin wall, which separated Communist-controlled East Berlin from West Berlin. Through the eyes of Charlotte, the audience gains a glimpse into life in Germany as it is transformed first by the Nazi regime and then by the bombings of the Allied Forces. The play opened off Broadway in May 2003 and moved to the Lyceum Theater on Broadway on December 3, 2003. It stayed on Broadway for almost a year and enjoyed 361 performances. As of the summer of 2005, it was still on national tour.
