Can we tempt you to come enjoy a play in Paonia? A local screenwriter is producing a new show in April. Is it any wonder this area is one of Colorado’s newest creative areas? Again, the Bross Hotel supports the local venues by offering a 10% reduction in room rate when you present your ticket stub for one of these plays. For play tickets call the Paradise (970-527-6610)
Back in the Dreamtime -- April 4, 5, 11, 12, 7:00 pm, and April 6, 13, 2:00 pm, Paradise Theater. The setting for local playwright Marty Durlin’s latest musical is the high school reunion of the class of ’65. As in her previous productions, the music is diverse. Back in the Dreamtime runs the gamut from operetta to country to doo-wop, including such numbers as Who Is That Old Guy? and You Could Be My Last Chance; and the sentiments in the tunes range from burning desire to a desire to be alone, and from rationalization to regret. The musical is both funny and poignant, and offers no easy answers, but an embrace of life itself.
