Due to covid-19 this event has been postponed.
It’s not often that you get to experience three totally different kinds of entertainment all in one single event. A Bluebonnet Evening is happening on the last weekend of March at the Salado Museum and College Park. The event begins with a mini concert by Salado songwriter Richard Paul Thomas, followed by the Premier Performance of the Musical Comedy “Bluebonnet Road” and ends with an evening of dancing to Sinatra, Bennet, Bublé and many others sung by Richard S. Patnaude.
This is the first of many such events being planned to help draw attention to and support the Salado Museum and College Park. It is designed to bring people together for an evening of fun. Bluebonnet Road is will be presented in the format of a radio show broadcast on KEGL – The Salado Eagle, staring Salado locals Sandy Maranto playing Olive, Richard Paul Thomas playing her older son, Noah, Rick Bell playing the younger son, Jo Jo, with Megan Brucker as Jo’ Jo’s girlfriend, Misty
Bluebonnet Road’s playwright is Louise Richardson and the year is 1979. Olive Trundle’s older son, Noah, drags his family on an adventure to spread his Grandfather’s ashes on the farm where Olive spent her childhood. The nearby river has been dammed for years and they don’t know if they will be able to find the old homestead. A Texas Flash Flood leaves them stranded, forcing the family to come to grips with their differences. A Bluebonnet Evening is being held at 7 PM on Friday, March 27th and Saturday, March 28th at the Salado Museum and College Park, 423 South Main Street, Salado. Tickets are $25 and they are available in advance at the Museum store open Monday Thru Friday from Noon to 4 PM as well as at the door on the nights of the performances.
