Caliche Springs Dinner Theatre by Louise Richardson
Sunday, April 25th @6:30pm
State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave.

The Caliche Springs Dinner Theatre is a backstage comedy about a fictional community theatre overlooking Lake Travis near Austin, Texas. Angie Squires narrates her story of the last days of CSDT, the inside politics and the earnest efforts of a clique of amateurs to bring to life two classic productions and one commissioned work about the founding father of the mythical town of Caliche Springs, Texas. Angie is basically the entire office staff of CSDT, a Cinderella who just wants her chance to act in a show.

She has acted in more than 30 productions in Austin, directed about a dozen others, and has written about half a dozen plays.
