Indian Lake Theater to host evening of "True Grit"

INDIAN LAKE - The Indian Lake Theater will showcase cowboy chow and residents will be decked out in boots and ten-gallon hats Saturday, Jan. 29 at 4:30 p.m. for thee 2011 fundraising party at which they will show the blockbuster film "True Grit."

Guests are invited to join in the spirit of "True Grit" by wearing western costume from head to toe and enjoying "grub" and "suds" that were served in saloons and on the trails of the old west. Prizes will be awarded for best costume.

This year's party is in the wake of successful 2010 fundraising campaigns.

"Our 'Titanic' party was such a success and everyone liked dressing in costume so much, that board president Ben Strader and I thought that this would be a great way to kick off the 2011 fundraising season," said theater director Pat Connor.

Tickets to the event are $15 and include: food, beverage and the showing of "True Grit." To reserve tickets, call 648-5950 or visit info@indianlaketheater.org. Tickets will also be available at the door beginning at 4:30 p.m. The movie will be shown at its regular time of 7:30 p.m.

"Events like this fundraiser are critical to the non-profit community theater," said Ben Strader, board president. "We depend on contributions and special events to fill our budget gap. If we had to depend on tickets and concessions alone the theater would never be able to operate year-round, which is a vital part of our mission."
