Leadville Literary League

Leadville Literary League’s 2018 Project!

We will post an update soon with details about this year’s community project in support of community theater.

The basic idea: local and regional poets and playwrights enter a contest to perform on stage at the Tabor Opera House in September 2018 with prizes awarded to top tier winners!

Everyone wins by performing their 1-15 minute presentation to a live audience. A professional panel of judges select top performers in categories ranging from youth to adult.

Your tax-deductible contributions for this endeavor will be greatly appreciated and acknowledged.

Contributions of any amount should be mailed to:

Leadville Literary League
815 Spruce Street
Leadville, CO 80461

We thank you for your support!

We are so very grateful to Elise Sunday, our photographer and editor  (owner of Fire On The Mountain in Leadville)  and Karen Onderdonk, our videographer (owner of IndigoMediaArts.co) for  volunteering their time and talent.

And, of course, we thank our wonderful, bold, brave women, our “Leadville Antiques: Uncovered” — our 50 and over models who agreed to participate in the celebration of life in support of a noble goal, the restoration and preservation of our historic treasure, the Tabor Opera House.
