FRANCISCO CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
A LITTLE HISTORY OF A LITTLE THEATER
IN LA VETA, COLORADO
The building now known as the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts was originally a Presbyterian Church built in 1892 on land donated by Colonel John Francisco and Mrs. P.Q. McComb. The Church, a stately white wooden building on Francisco Street, was built by William H. Adamson at a cost of $1,200. Initially it contained two rooms, a 38′ x 40′ audience room and a second 16′ by 22′ room. In 1893, the Church boasted a membership of 35 souls.

Doors normally open at 6:30 p.m. for 7:00 p.m. performances and at 1:30 p.m. for matinees, but the doors will always open earlier when tickets are only available at the door. Advance tickets to FCPA shows, when made available, normally go on sale online (right here!) approximately four weeks before the first show date. Approximately two weeks before the show, tickets not yet sold online will also go on sale locally while continuing to be available online while they last.
When advance tickets are sold ahead of the show, you can still purchase tickets at the door on each show date but only if there are still tickets available! We recommend that you buy your tickets in advance to ensure that you get a seat!
