You won’t want to miss this dinner theater production of “Harvey Girls!” This three-act play written by Post resident Rosa Latimer accurately tells the story of the Harvey Girls who came west to work in the Harvey House restaurants established along the Santa Fe Railroad. Ms. Latimer is also the author of a series of books about the Harvey Houses of the southwest.
The humorous, nostalgic true story is performed by the combined talents of the Post & Slaton Theater Departments and directed by Tim & Leslie Tatum and James Villaneuva. Proceeds from this dinner theater presentation benefit the theater programs of Post and Slaton ISD>

The Caprock Cultural Association is very happy to have historian Lou Burleson return to the Heritage House on April 8, 2016 for a performance that tells the story of the “WASP” – women Airforce service pilots. The event begins at Noon with lunch.
Burleson is a retired history and theater teacher who lives in Floydada, Texas. Continuing her love of history, she developed seven “one-woman” shows to share the story of outstanding women in Texas history. “My ‘WASP’ program seems to be a favorite of audiences,” Lou said. “Perhaps because it is a little known part of our state’s history.”
The WASP program was formed during the early part of World War II to compensate for a critical shortage of male pilots. Women were trained as licensed pilots to help relieve the shortage. Approximately 25,000 women applied, 1,830 were accepted into the program. These women were never officially accepted as military until 1977 when President Jimmy Carter signed a law making it official. The Women Airforce Service Pilots were trained at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas. A National WASP museum has been established at Avenger Field to honor this part of Texas history.
This event is sponsored by the Caprock Cultural Association. Cost for the event is $12/person and reservations are required by Wednesday, April 6. Call 806-495-4148 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to make your reservation.
