Can you believe it has been 10 years to the day that Thingamajig Theatre Company officially hosted its first “Opening Night”? A lot has happened in 10 years. We have produced hundreds of shows for tens of thousands of patrons. But one show gets brought up more than any other. “When are we ever going to see it again?!”

Well, she is back!

Thingamajig Theatre’s 2011 production of the A.R. Gurney comedy ‘Sylvia’… featuring (clockwise from left) Tim Moore, Liz Baldwin and Laura Moore (as ‘Sylvia’).

SYLVIA (…you know, the play about the dog and her man… and his wife…) returns to the Thingamajig stage as we celebrate our humble beginnings 10 years ago. This Pagosa favorite is scheduled to open June 25 and will run through August 29.

“We have produced hundreds of shows for thousands of patrons over the past decade,” said Tim. “It is ‘Sylvia’ that is brought up more often than any other show with the request that we stage an encore run.”

A multiple Drama Desk Award-nominated comedy, A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia” has been produced thousands of times on Broadway and in regional theatres. “And for good reason,” said Laura. “It’s comedy gold with a canine touch. I am thrilled to be playing Sylvia again for our Pagosa audiences.”

We hope this show reminds you why you fell in love with Thingamajig Theatre Company 10 years ago!

In advance of the “Sylvia” opening, the Moores are holding a photo contest to find the perfect canine that best represents the character of the show’s star dog. “We’re looking for a photo that’s cute, hilarious, sassy or heart-melting, one that pulls on the heart strings,” said Laura. “Send us a picture of your beloved pooch and you’ll have a chance to win two free tickets to see ‘Sylvia.’ As well, the winning photo will be featured on the set of the play.”

The winner of the dog photo contest will be chosen by the cast of “Sylvia.” Photos must be high resolution so they are suitable to be printed, meaning your smartphone should be set for the largest file size available. Email your entry to thingamajigbox@gmail.com.

“In addition to being a part of the ‘Sylvia’ set, your dog picture might even be published in the local newspaper and posted on our community’s two local online news journals, and then you’ll have to teach her to sign autographs,” said Laura with a grin.
