As we get closer and closer to February a block of the calendar which I refer to as “Texas History Time” begins. For those of you who don’t remember, the Battle of the Alamo started in February, the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed March 2, and the Battle of San Jacinto who won our freedom from Mexico, was on April 21. During this brief period there are hundreds of great stories about the brave men and women who fought and struggled to create our Texas.
On February 17, March 11, April 20 and 22, at the Granbury Live Theater It will be my pleasure to present “The Lion of Texas-An Evening with Sam Houston”; the amazing story of the most iconic character in the history of Texas. This one-man play is full of humor, amazing tales, and sound and visual effects which will transform you to the living room of the great General Sam and make you feel like you are having a private conversation! Inspiring, patriotic, and enriching, this show has been performed throughout Texas to rave reviews! You will laugh, be amazed at the “living history” of General Sam’s life, and appreciate his thoughts and concerns about the Texas of today. No Texan can see the show and not be moved by the dramatic story of the Texas Revolution, the loss of the Alamo and Goliad and the exciting victory at San Jacinto.
Actual comments from people who have seen “The Lion of Texas -An Evening with Sam Houston”:
“I did not grow up in Texas and only vaguely knew the story of Sam Houston and the Texas revolution. No wonder all these Texans are so proud! What an epic story and presented so well!
“It made my chest swell with pride…wonderfully written and beautifully performed. Something every Texan should see”
“My emotions swung in every direction. I found myself laughing, crying, swelling with pride, and looking on in amazement. The kind of show everyone should see and will be glad they did”
Importantly, the March 11 show is a fund raiser for the Comanche Peak Detachment of the Marine Corp League (The people who make Toy’s for Tots happen at Christmas and lots of other great things for Marine Corp Veterans).
Get your tickets to this exciting and entertaining show. If you are from Texas, you will love it! If you are new to Texas, you will appreciate it! If you aren’t from Texas we will all feel sorry for you!
