SEEKING SHOW PROGRAMS (even partial programs) from Washington, Oregon, Montana, and BC & Alberta Canada, from any decade.

Don’t throw them out, or worse yet, let your kids throw them out after you’re gone.  Send them, or an electronic copy, to us and we’ll share them with

the world!  (Literally folks, this site can be seen WORLD-WIDE).

It’s through these donations that we can document and preserve so much of what happened around us in our youth.

See the “Introduction” for details
