Springs Theatre Company presents ‘Santa Sock Hop!’

The Springs Theatre Company proudly presents their final production of the 2008 Season with a delightful trip to a bygone era Christmas weekend with “Santa Sock Hop!”

This family-friendly 1950s fantasy for all ages will take place Friday, Dec. 26, and Saturday, December 27. Harken back to 1958, a simpler time when the record player scratched out such tunes as “Santa Baby” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and an erector set was on everyone’s wish list.

Guests will be delighted to see the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse transformed into a ’50s style diner serving traditional fare such as hamburgers, hot dogs and fresh french fries along with floats and sodas. On the “bandstand” a rockin’ DJ will be spinning the biggest hits of the decade on the Wurlitzer jukebox as the crowd dances the twist, the mashed potato, the jitterbug and more! Also featured will be live musicians and singers playing some of your favorites from the ’50s “hit parade.” Join in the fun during the hula-hoop contest, the bubblegum blowing contest, the costume contest and the candy cane limbo contest.

“Santa Sock Hop!” will begin at 6:30 p.m. each evening. Period costumes are encouraged and the Costume Pit Stop will be offering discounts to anyone who rents a costume and mentions this event. Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under and includes dinner, dessert, beverages, favors, and great music. Tickets are on sale now at The Plaid Pony (731-5262) or online at www.SpringsTheatreCompany.org.

Wrap up the holiday weekend by doing the “Shake, Rattle, and Roll” at “Santa Sock Hop!.” For more information on “Santa Sock Hop!,” the upcoming 2009 season, or for volunteer, advertising and sponsorship opportunities, contact Michael DeWinter at 731-5262, Rick Artis at 731-8914, or visit the Web site.
