2015 marks our 53rd year of producing family oriented theatrical productions. This year our show is an original piece entitled Guitar Strings, A Cowboy and A Lost Peacock, produced by the Durango Melodrama. While this is not a traditional Melodrama we have gone to great lengths to make sure that the content of the show is appealing to all ages. We think that you will agree it is one of the best works that we have produced in many years.

2015 Summer Show: Guitar Strings, a Cowboy, and a Lost Peacock
Produced by the Durango Melodrama

Join us on a captivating and comedic adventure through 100 years of Durango history in 90 minutes of theatrical wonders. You’ll meet Becca, a western millennial trying to make it in a small town, and Will, a 1915 cowboy poet musician on his way to play a show, when time traveling hilarity ensues. Throw in elevator genies, the search for a lost peacock, and the quest for love and a simpler life and you’ve got the perfect mixture for a night on the town. This show is designed for a broad audience to give a glimpse of the changes that Durango has had thru the eyes of a cowboy from 1915 and a modern day singing millennial.

We invite you to watch the video trailer below and visit our Strater Hotel website News Page to read a delightful review by The Durango TelegraphElevator Time Machine.
