Letters Aloud - Love Letters PFAC presents Letters Aloud - Love Letters

Thursday, February 11th

7 pm

Pinedale Auditorium


The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) is pleased to present an evening connecting modern audiences to the rapidly disappearing form of correspondence: the written letter. From the romantically sublime to the pathetically ridiculous... real historical letters read by real actors. From an awkward courtship to horrible breakups, from loves of a lifetime to lifetimes of love, don't miss these letters read aloud in public. Think Napoleon was fiery in battle, you should hear his letter after being dumped. And who can miss Ben Franklin's advice on why you should date older women. Tickets are Adults: $20, Students: $7, on sale online at PFAC's website or at both Office Outlets, Cowboy Shop, Isabel's Jewelry and Big Piney Library.


Go Purchase tickets through PFAC's website
