Quisicosas, 1951

The Lobero has a shared history with Old Spanish Days Fiesta, and we love to Viva.

In true #TBT (Throwback Thursday) style, Check out this gem from a 1951 production of Quisicosas at the Lobero Theatre. There is so much to enjoy in this vintage program — from the Spanish pronunciation guide, to the inserted flyer for the Music Academy of the West‘s Summer Festival Gala, with tickets for $3! Not to mention the old phone numbers and the fact that you can still eat at El Paseo before a show at the Lobero.

“And today, In the year 1951, Fiesta seethes again around and within Lobero. Santa Barbarans and their guests reliving the days of the past, and holding fast to those traditions that lend enchantment to life for all who dwell here.” (pg 4, Quisicosas program) 

Click, and enjoy.
