American Southwest Theatre Company hosts Gala 2001

The American Southwest Theatre Company will host the third annual Valentine Gala, "Spotlight on Romance," from 8 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Las Cruces Hilton.

The local band "Caliente" will provide music for the event, which will also feature champagne, hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction. Many gifts from local merchants will be auctioned, including perfume, cosmetics, art and evenings at the Las Cruces Hilton.

"It will be a really nice formal event with great music," said Tim Pinnow, assistant professor of theater arts and creative director for the ASTC.

The money raised will help provide guest artists and professional directors for the NMSU theater department through ASTC.

Tickets are on sale at the NMSU Hershel Zohn box office. Prices are $40 for adults, $75 for couples and $25 for students.

The ASTC will continue the 2000-01 season with "The Cripple of Inishman," showing Feb. 13-18.
