Congratulations to the winners of our drama intelligence test, which we ran in our Dec. 28, 2000 issue, where we asked readers to match photos with quotations from plays produced in Colorado Springs last year. Mary Sprunger-Froese edged out Amanda Mountain with a couple of tie-breaker questions, the only difference in two perfect scores. The other winners are Jodi Papproth, Constance Gelvin, Sarah Pottenger, Barbara Sommerville, Janie Accord, Jon Patten, Chris Puloz, Mikeeta Miller, Pat Barrett and Rob Civiletti. All winners receive tickets to Springs-area performances.

The costumes were amazing and added to the brilliant production.
The striking colors and textures are reminiscent of Southern Colorado and New Mexico. Lovely work.
