Performance in Pretty Prairie


Many of you know that our daughters have been performing music this past year. This weekend, The Vogts Sisters will be singing at the Civic Theatre in Pretty Prairie, KS (isn't that a sweet name for a town?)


The Civic Theatre opened in 1936 and reopened in 1981, and still features its original wooden-backed seats. Programs are varied and include classic films and live stage performances. 

Movie Trivia: The community of Pretty Prairie was featured in the 1952 film "Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie".


More Movie Trivia: In 1956, Carl Switzer and his wife Diantha Collingwood, moved to Pretty Prairie to live on her father's farm for a short time. Carl Switzer is best known as "Alfalfa" from Our Gang. Our Gang episodes are very popular at the Civic Theatre. 

Doors open at 7:00 PM on Saturday, with the concert beginning at 7:30. Hope you can join us!
