La Veta Theater

Published by at 5:29 pm under General Information

Sometimes we get asked – “But what is there to do in La Veta?” – To which we reply – “We never have time to go to everything this is going on!” – Well, last night we went to the play at the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts – DEATH BY DESSERT – directed locally by Coral Anderson and Debby Blouin, presented by The Spanish Peaks Players and performed brilliantly and heart-felt by many of our local thespians. Of course, we dressed up for our night out at the Theater, had a quick toddy at the La Veta Inn and enjoyed wonderful seats for the performance. Not only did our ticket give us murder-mystery theater – we were also wined and dined during intermission with a succulent array of over-the-top hors d’oeuvres – definitely delectable and to die for! The chocolate cake I would definitely kill for – moist and delicious! Set design was great – New York’s Little Italy – the Donnaducce family and the Duccedonni families have been feuding for a generation while operating two competing Italian restaurants that share a common wall. We even got to cast our vote for whodunit! And the majority of our audience guessed correctly! We are already looking forward to next weekend’s night out – again at the Theater for a performance of DEARLY DEPARTED – set to perform on April 23rd & 24th at 7:00 p.m. This comedy is about the Turpins, a family that proves that living and dying in the backwoods of the deep South is seldom tidy, but always hilarious. For all the upcoming events scheduled for the 2010 season, go to www.lavetatheater.org  We already have our reservations for dinner at The La Veta Inn before the performance It’s great to live in La Veta.    Liz
