Spencer Theater

Ray and I went to the Spencer Theater for a tour this morning.  The Condos we stay at offer a variety of different places and things to do.  For some reason we were the only people who went out to the theater and it was amazing.  It turns out that the wife of the manager of Pine Cliff Village is on the board of the Theater.  The Director of Spencer Theater took us around.  We were shown everything.  The theater seats about 500 people but the stage is bigger than just about anything I have seen.  The building itself is beautiful.  I have come to the realization that I am a Dale Chihuly fan.  I love his glass work.  He is very productive and I imagine that very few people have not seen a piece of  his work.  He did a large number of pieces for the theater.  My favorite is the Chili Pepper Christmas Tree in the lobby.  I would love to have that.  I would never take it down either.  There is a fund raiser this weekend, we would like to go, but I think it may require better clothes than what we brought to Ruidoso.  We did buy a raffle ticket to win a smaller original Chihuly piece.  The thought came to mind as to where we could possibly put something this valuable if we did win it.  I guess we could figure it out.  There would have to be serious warnings to not touch to Wyatt and Andrea.
