Students of Pierre Mion Exhibit, through Oct. 21

The opening reception for the Students of Pierre Mion Exhibit took place at the Pagosa springs Arts Coiunci Gallery at Town Park Oct. 2.

This show consists of watercolor pieces produced under the instruction of Pierre Mion by many of his students over a two-year time period.

Pierre’s students often comment about his professionalism, as well as his teaching expertise. He models for his students, he coaches them, and he works with them to produce an end result that is beyond their expectations. Even with his background and experience his students never feel intimidated by him.

This is truly one of the finest exhibits that Pagosa Springs has to offer. This is the final PSAC exhibit of the 2008 season and it will run until Oct. 21.

“Clue, The Musical!”

“Clue, The Musical!” a dinner theatre offering, will take the stage Oct. 23 24 and 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse.

“Clue, The Musical!” is a how based on CLUE, the world’s most popular board game, second in the United States only to Monopoly.

The musical marks the first time a board game has ever been brought to life on the stage and follows the game’s six well known’“suspects” as they sing and dance their way through mayhem and murder in six rooms of the Boddy mansion. This Springs Theatre Company production promises to be full of twists and turns.

Guest participation is encouraged as the suspect, room and weapon will change each night based on the Clue cards drawn by audience volunteers creating 216 potential endings. The audience also gets a chance to play along on a tally sheet and deduce who dunnit, in which room and with what weapon.
