On March 31, the Durango Education Foundation presented 9-R with $250,000 for the Bridge the Gap Campaign. “We wanted to give the school district extra funds to help those kids who are less fortunate and continue to support education in this community,” said Tom Geyer, Board President of Durango Education Foundation.
Here’s a hilarious melodrama that spoofs many of Hollywood’s Westerns and has modern touches to boot. Slick and wealthy Richard Coldheart (“Oh, that’s Rich!”) must marry Polly Wanda to control the Wanda property. However, it’s Polly’s homely sister, Prunella, who wants to marry him! Meanwhile, our hero, Sheriff Wayne John, has his hands full surviving the hilarious antics of well-meaning but not too bright Deputy Doowrong. When a bundle of villains, including Snydley Dastardley, Kid Kid, and Calamity Jan, attempt to take over Low Humidity Chasm (Aren’t you sick and tired of melodramas taking place in Dry Gulch?), things really go crazy! Your audience will have to pay close attention to whether Switcharoo Kid is wearing his white hat or his black hat to know whether to cheer or boo. But Repete will leave no doubt in their minds, for he’s even meaner Pete. With a narrator to keep the characters onstage in line, this play can be presented as a traditional melodrama or as a full-length comedy. Either way, this wild and wooly Western will bring down the house!
Performances are on three different nights, April 5, 6, and 7th at 7:00 PM in the Escalante Cafetorium. Come on out and enjoy the show!

Keith Jim is attracting attention for "The Heroes," his graphic novel series telling the Navajo creation story. The important, traditional Navajo stories he grew up hearing were his identity when he was a youngster. He hopes to leave a new generation of children, Native and non-Native alike, with that same feeling through his work. Learn more about Keith Jim and his work on March 31, 2022, 6pm-8pm, at Miller Middle School.
