Home Picnic Raffle

Many of you “took a chance”

I’m referring of course to the “Picnic” basket raffle The Adobe Theater conducted during the run of… well “Picnic” here August 7th through August 30th.

If you weren’t here for that fine show, we had certificates donated to The Adobe from Keller’s Meats, M’Tucci’s Italian Market and Deli and the La Montañita Co-op, totaling a value of $185.00 and we sold raffle tickets for $1.00 each. Over 800 tickets were purchased raising much needed  funds to help defray the cost of The Adobe revamping its aging sound system.

Many thanks to all who participated and congratulations to Ms. Dawn Dalton of Rio Rancho whose winning ticket was drawn just after the close of the show on Sunday and who came by to pick up her prize on September 1st.

"No play better represents William Inge than Picnic".....this Picnic features a strong cast.......Daryl Streeter did a fine job directing........This is classic, mid-20th-century American drama, well done and well worth seeing." (Matthew Yde, Albuquerque Journal, August 16th)


"...if you are looking for a play that evokes the nostalgia of the '50s, or you just like old movies, you will like this charming production." (Plauditarts.com)

It’s Labor Day, and the people of a small Kansas town are busy preparing for their annual celebration. A handsome young drifter, Hal Carter, shows up unexpectedly, hoping an old fraternity brother can help him with a job. Hal’s dynamic presence and brash personality creates excitement, uncertainty, and conflict that makes everyone in town to question their heretofore predictable and comfortable lives. When he meets local girl Madge, their fireworks rival those of the Labor Day celebration.


PICNIC, written by William Inge (Bus Stop; Come Back Little Sheba) was first performed on Broadway in 1953. Paul Newman understudied “Hal,” and later took over the role from Ralph Meeker. PICNIC won both the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award. A successful film 1955 film adaptation starred William Holden (Sunset Boulevard; The Bridge On The River Kwai) and Kim Novak (Bell, Book and Candle; Vertigo).




Director Daryl Streeter says The Adobe Theater’s presentation of PICNIC “reflects the reality of time and place, of people hemmed in by the need to perform their daily domestic tasks and make a living, of young people dreaming big and living small.” The role of Hal is played by Nick Fleming, and Madge is portrayed by Kiersten Johnson. The cast also includes, Brian Wise, Kimberly Sengir, H.K. Phillips, Carolyn Hogan, Kenneth West, Gail Gillock Spidle, Drea Maletta, Kristen Stephenson, and Jackson Krebbs.


PICNIC opened at The ADOBE Theater on Friday, August 7th and ran 4 weekends through Sunday, August 30th. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm with a special ‘Pay What You Will’ performance (to benefit the cast and crew) on Thursday August 20th at 7.30pm. Tickets are only $17, seniors and students $15. Reservations 505-898-9222 or online by clicking on the poster above
