The Francisco Center For The Performing Arts in La Veta, Colorado is used throughout the year for concerts, events, and stage shows. Home to the “Spanish Peaks Players”, a performance troupe that puts on productions throughout the year, this site is also available to rent.
The Francisco Center For The Performing Arts building was built in 1892 for $1,200 and originally served as a Presbyterian Church. During the early 1970s, the church was signed over to the town of La Veta by the Presbyterians so that the Francisco Fort Museum could use it.
Starting in 1975, a group of entertainers and actors, named the “Spoon River Players”, called this stage home. Over the years, their name changed to the “Fort Francisco Players” before changing to the “Spanish Peaks Players“, as they are known today.
Occasionally holding events and available for rent, there are only 79 seats inside, making it an excellent venue for more intimate, personal performances. Memberships to the center are sold on five tiers with varying benefits, such as percentages off ticket sales and free tickets to FCPA events.
