Durango Melodrama

Melodrama began in this theater in the summer of 1962 under the direction of Orvis Grout and the Diamond Circle Melodrama Company which included my Grandmother, Marion Jarvis; Father Earl Barker; Mother, Jentra Barker; with local and regional business pioneers: Mahlon T. "Butch" White, Robert Beers and Mort McGinley. It was a big gamble to produce such a show in a town that was only beginning its entry in to the world of tourism. It ran uninterrupted, for a span of 45 years, including a period under the direction of my sister, Jeannie Wheeldon.
