Boughs of Folly

is an oasis of laughter and Christmas chaos as

seasoned Spuradicals return to form in annual WSPR-TV’s holiday broadcast

Fridays & Saturdays, November 27 - December 18

Post-Thanksgiving weekends this holiday season find the hilarious crew of fictional WSPR-TV back on the air – and the Salado Silver Spur Theater stage – with its annual Christmas Eve broadcast, which, naturally, never goes as planned.

‘Boughs of Folly’ is chock-full of the side-splitting slapstick and comedy routines that have made the annual holiday show a must-see for the entire family and their visitors," said Grainger Esch, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Silver Spur Theater.

"This holiday show guarantees relief from shopping overload, decorating duties and party planning," Esch emphasized. “Think of the Spur, as a safe oasis of laughter far from the chaos of Christmas, which is on comedic display on our stage.

The Spur is located at 108 Royal St. in the renovated Guest and Sanford Granary & Feed Co. in historic downtown Salado, a few blocks from the bustling IH-35 Corridor.

Theater patrons will be right in "the studio audience" for the music, the merriment and the memorable, mirthful staging of an "on-the-air" variety show, Esch said. The seasonal scenario is conceived, written and performed by a cast of veteran performers, The Spuradicals, continuing the Silver Spur's tradition of homespun, heartfelt, original family entertainment.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, with 2 p.m. Saturday matinees: Nov. 27 (eve. only), Dec 3-4, 10-11, 17-18. Admissions are $15 for adults; $12 for senior citizens, military personnel and students with ID; and $8 for children aged 12 and under for evening shows.

Matinees, tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for all others. Group rates are available. For reservations, call the box office at 254-947-3456. For directions or more play info, visit or

In the “spirits” of the season, the seven-year-old professional theater will serve wine, beer, cider and expanded food choices at evening shows (only) at the recently opened The Spuradical Social Club in its lobby. A free temporary membership is required and available at: in advance or in the lobby.
