SALADO (February 27, 2013)--Salado’s Silver Spur Theater will hold its last two performances this weekend before shutting its doors forever.
For more than eight years the theater has offered musical productions, comedies, stage plays and classic cinema featuring local talent.
“Schtick Happens,” the theater’s last show, will get underway Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m.
The show was originally scheduled as a one-night only performance, however, with the selling out of its 150 seats during the theater’s last performance, spokesperson Preston Kirk and Co-Founder Grainger Esch have decided to extend the play through Saturday.
The program will include a silent screen comedy presented with live musical accompaniment and sound effects generated on century-old instruments.
The play will be a variety show featuring slapstick, satire and songs for all ages.
Special guests will include members of the Texas Association Legion of Honor groups like Karem Shrine.
“We appreciate our wonderful base of loyal fans, many of whom have been regulars since we first opened. We wanted to do one last show, for old times’ sake, for fun and to express our gratitude for their devoted support,” Esch said.
Admission is $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, military personnel and students with ID, and $10 for children ages 12 and younger.
For reservations call the theater at (254) 947-3456.
