ANNOUNCING OUR WONDERFUL CAST
Three out-of state actors have traveled to Prescott to play the key roles of Allan Affleldt, Tina Mion, and Dan Lutzick, and seven wonderful local actors, fill out the rest of the cast. To read about our actors click here.
WHY THIS PLAY, WHY NOW?
BECAUSE the events of the last few years and more recent international upheavals call for uplifting stories like those of La Posada.
BECAUSE the struggle, commitment and joy of creating something new from the ashes of history is an inspiring guide for all of us.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
On the face of it, La Posada is about the restoration of Mary Colter’s abandoned architectural masterpiece--and it is! On a captivating level, it is about the unlikely trio who brought it back to life: activist Allan Affeldt, artist Tina Mion, and sculptor Dan Lutzick. Part fantasy, mostly history, this is their story.
Much of the story turns on Ms. Mion’s paintings, several of which appear in our production. You can view them by clicking on the small icon below.
