Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College will present “When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder?”, a drama right in line with the Halloween season, by Mark Medoff, at CMC Spring Valley Oct. 19-28.

In the late 1960s Foster’s Diner, a rest stop in southern New Mexico, lost most of its clientele when a new highway bypass opened. The only ones left are a restless cook Stephen (known as Red); mousy waitress Angel; their boss Clark; and Lyle, the owner of the adjacent gas station. That’s until an unstable Vietnam War vet’s car breaks down and the monotony is decidedly disrupted.

Curtain for “When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder?” will be 7 p.m. Oct. 19-20 and Oct. 26-27 and 2 p.m. Oct 21 and Oct. 28 at the New Space Theatre, Calaway Academic Building, Colorado Mountain College Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114. Admission is $18 for adults and $13 for seniors, students and CMC employees.
