Picketwire Players Masked Singer Show Hits a High Note

The Picketwire Center for Visual and Performing Arts hosted The First Evening of The Masked Singer Competition on Friday. 

The event was held in combination with a food truck frenzy event, which made for many happy patrons.

Masters of Ceremony George Larsen and Natalie Summers entertained a near full house with a plate full of food jokes and maybe even a pun or twenty-two.

At one point during the performance Summers thanked her father for all of his dad jokes, which she sprinkled liberally through the show.

How hot was it George? "It was so hot the Rocky Ford Cantaloupe were Kentucky Fried."

Some were not as tasteful as the food truck offerings, but community theater is like pizza - even when it's bad it's good.
