About the SteamPlant Event Center


The SteamPlant Event Center, located in the heart of scenic Salida, Colorado, hosts over 500 events each year, from private weddings to conferences, community meetings, concerts, conventions, and more. Originally built in 1887 to house the Salida Edison Electric Light Company, the historic building was purchased exactly a century later by the City of Salida. The SteamPlant is a vibrant, thriving part of our community that includes a theater venue, outdoor sculpture garden, art galleries, riverside plaza, conference rooms, and a spacious ballroom.

Upcoming Event


Saturday, March 6 at 7:00pm MST

“And then I realize, in this sort of strange, hallucinatory moment, that the bug guy is looking kind of good, and the things he’s saying about bugs are really kind of fascinating and it is then that I realized that maybe it’s been too long since I’ve been on a date. When the bug guy starts to looking good, it’s time to get out of the house.”

So confesses a single mother and self-described restaurant idiot savant in this thoroughly charming and slyly sweet one-woman play. This idiosyncratic journey of self-discovery involving the Romanian mob, a Buddhist rainstorm, a teenage daughter, shoes and a few very bad dates will entertain and delight.

Written by Theresa Rebeck         Directed by Michael Ricci         Starring Devon Kasper

This single performance is ONLINE ONLY beginning at 7:00PM (MST)! A live talk-back with the director and actor immediately to follow the broadcast via Zoom.
