Sponsor Spotlight:

As amazing as it sounds, after almost 15 years of showcasing top-quality entertainment every weekend, many of you out there have yet to "discover" this amazing venue!

We wanted to take a minute this week to talk about one of our city's greatest resources for top-quality entertainment - a special place that probably has not been experienced by a great many of our readers, for one reason or another. It's one of those unique places...and we, your LFC hosts Shane and Steph, find ourselves wanting to share the excitement we feel each time we see a production at the Cactus. For starters, you must know that Don Caldwell and his talented staff literally produce dozens and dozens of original entertainment options all year long...highlighted by the best local and regional singing talent, top-notch backing musicians, technical sound and staging expertise - the list goes on and on. From original full ensemble theatrical plays to local and touring musical acts...the Cactus Theater has something for every age and taste. Recently, we've had the pleasure of witnessing amazing music tributes to The Eagles, Chicago, Creedence, Kenny Rogers and Neil Diamond...and the shows are OUTSTANDING! The talent that shines onstage is nothing short of amazing most each and every outing...and we want our readers to fully recognize this incredible venue. If you have visited the Cactus most likely had a wonderful experience. If you haven't taken the time to explore it's offerings (many of which we highlight in this weekly postcard)...we encourage you to get out and discover the magic that takes place there! Some of you may think of the Cactus as a place where seniors go to "live in the past"....and yes, their unique nostalgia shows are a big part of the offerings...but make no mistake: quality entertainment presented in a clean, wholesome family atmosphere is worth acknowledging and experiencing! So...we sincerely hope you'll "discover" what many folks already know and appreciate. To keep fully up-to-date about the many offerings they present, you may want to join their mailing list.
