High-quality theater at Thunder River

Dear Editor:

We are so lucky to have a theatrical treasure in our valley – Thunder River Theater Company. After seeing the riveting performance of “Street Car Named Desire” this past Saturday, I am totally convinced that local repertory theater of the highest quality is alive and thriving. The audience was filled to capacity with many people from up and down the entire valley from Aspen to Glenwood. If you haven’t see this production, don’t miss out – it’s on for one more weekend.

Having attended many performances over recent years, I marvel how founder and Artistic Director Lon Winston and Associate Artistic Director Valerie Haugen are continually able to provide amazing, spellbinding productions, and in the theater that they and so many generous donors built from the ground up. Hats off also to all of the hard-working board members and volunteers for their commitment.

The sets are marvelous, the plays top notch, and the actors professional, well directed, and are so passionate about the roles they play.

Carbondale is so well situated in the mid valley – and certainly much closer than New York City or Denver or Chicago.
