Texas Theatre welcomes a busy 2018
Posted on 1/18/2018 6:22:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- The Texas Theatre will be offering a variety of performances during the first months of 2018, including plays and concerts featuring talent from across Texas.  
The first show of the year will be August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize winning play Fences.  Set in 1950's Pittsburgh, Fences tells the story of the Maxson family's struggles. 
"The main character, Troy, played by Papa Douglass, is a bigger than life character," the theatre describes the play on its web site, "He is resentful of the fact that he could not play baseball in the major leagues when he was younger because of the color barrier in place at the time. He was a gifted baseball player and his resentment results in his denying his young son a chance at being recruited by a college football team because he wants to protect his son from the discrimination he faced."
Performances will be Friday and Saturday nights, January 19 and 20, at 7:00 p.m. There will be a 2:30 Sunday matinee. Tickets are available at Gift & Gourmet, Keepers, the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce, or through their web site, www.thetexas.org. Ticket prices are $15 in advance, $20 at the door.  Warning, the play contains mature language.
The following weekend enjoy music from some country music legends at the Heart of Texas Roadshow.  The show will feature Dion Pride, Tony Booth, Dottsy and Kaye Tolson.  Catch one of two shows on Saturday, January 27; a matinee at 2:30 p.m. and an evening performance at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets can be purchased through www.heartoftexascountry.com.
Then on Feb. 16 and 17, the Texas Theatre will be host to the Texas Light Opera's and Aria Creative Production's performance of The Last Five Years.  The musical will be on a tour through Central Texas with performances in San Antonio and Wimberley in addition to Seguin.  The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy telling her story backwards, while Jamie tells his story chronologically; the two characters are only on stage together once, at their wedding in the middle of the show. 
"With one of the goals for the Seguin Main Street Program to be making downtown Seguin a cultural arts district, the Texas Theatre's active calendar is essential to growing the arts in Seguin," said Kyle Kramm, Seguin Main Street and CVB Director.
