Hospital art sponsors

The Pagosa Mountain Hospital Art Exhibit runs until Nov. 18.

We continually encourage sponsors and donors to come forward. Donations from $1 and up are welcome and there are donation envelopes, as well as a drop box, at the hospital’s front reception area for your convenience.

Thank you for whatever amount you can donate in order to provide “Healing Art” for our hospital.

“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.

This is a show based on CLUE, the world’s most popular board game, second in the United States only to Monopoly.

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