The few, the proud and the persistent were rewarded for their
efforts this week with tickets to the Snowdown Follies, hosted by
the Durango Arts Center and the Diamond Circle Theatre. The
annual variety show, now in its 22nd year, kept perma-grins on
a raucous DAC crowd with skits and songs on topics ranging
from feline cuisine at local restaurants to the trials and tribulations
of super hero living. The Ska beer was flowing freely as
locals got in the mood for the multitude of upcoming
Snowdown events. With a little help and guidance from
Durango’s local Follies entertainers, there shouldn’t be a dry eye
in town this weekend.
