Silver Spur Theatre, Salado, Closes Doors with Final Variety Show on March 1, 2013
Salado Silver Spur Theater Closes Permanently on March 1
Professional theater shuttering after eight years of shows, concerts, events, weddings
For more than eight years, the Silver Spur Theater and its diverse band of entertainers – The Spuradical Players – delighted in reviving a bygone era of family entertainment, offering its trademark blend of vaudeville acts, live music, stage plays and classic cinema.
Business conferences, reunions, concerts, fundraisers and field trips also filled the first class venue, lovingly renovated in the historic Guest & Sanford Grain & Feed Co. at 108 Royal St.
In the Village of Salado, a major IH-35 tourist destination long known for its Stagecoach stop and inviting Hill Country creek, park museums, art galleries, B&Bs and festivals, the Silver Spur Theater was a bastion of night-time entertainment.
Even President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura had “tripped the light fantastic” within its walls for the wedding rehearsal after-party for daughter Jenna Bush and fiancée Henry Hager.
Now it’s time for the last dance. The theater’s final performance will be a one-night-only variety show, “Schtick Happens,” at 7 p.m., Friday, March 1. Admission is $18 for adults; $15 for senior citizens, military personnel and students with ID; and $10 for children aged 12 and under.
