Pella —

Guests and members filled the Pella Opera House on the evening of August 29, to socialize, relax and enjoy appetizers (photo right) in anticipation of the upcoming shows for the 2013-2014 theatre season. 
Everyone who came to the party were welcomed personally by Kevin McQuade, Director, and given a raffle ticket at the sign in desk for a chance at multiple draw prizes. Before the unveiling of the presentation for the upcoming season of performances, guests gathered together to mingle and enjoy refreshments. Central College Catering provided the food, and a variety of wine and beers from Peace Tree Brewery were served for the adult guests. After the social hour, guests went upstairs into the theatre for the unveiling of the upcoming season. 
Fans of Opera are in for a treat, with 15 live performances, 7 free films, and 4 special events. The Pella Opera House will continue to bring quality, variety and fun to Pella with their new line up of old favorites and new acts.
In October, The Pella Opera House will present Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, performed by the Central College Theatre Department. 
The month of November kicks off with the brilliant new act, Branson on the Road, for spectators who enjoy country music. Also, back by popular demand, will be Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience. To kick off the Holiday season, The Pella Opera House will bring back their annual Festival of Trees: White Christmas. Guests will be dazzled and warmed by the lights and twinkling displays of the Opera House-turned-winter wonderland. 
In December, there will be a Davis Folkerts and Friends Holiday Show. On New Year's Eve, guests will celebrate and bring in the New Year with live music, dancing, food and beverages. 
Moving into January of 2014 is the highly anticipated theatre performance, The Secret Garden. This is just one of the shows that kids will love in the upcoming season. The Secret Garden is an original Missoula Children's Theatre rendition.
