It was quite a weekend this past week! At Granbury Live we had a couple of great performances of the Tony Award winning play, Same Time Next Year; one on Friday night and one on Sunday afternoon! The Director Don Shook brought two wonderful actors to play the roles of George and Doris; Nancy Chartier and Greg Mansur. These experienced performers were wonderful, and the audience seemed to really appreciate this light hearted, romantic comedy, especially in our intimate theater setting!
On Saturday we had two performances of Chris Collins and the Boulder Canyon Band in their tribute to John Denver. I was away from the theater performing my show, but I am told they were outstanding and the nearly sold out crowds were awed be the John Denver like performances. We are already looking into bringing Chris back to Granbury for an encore performance!
As I said, I was not at the theater as I was performing “The Lion of Texas-A Conversation with Sam Houston” to a crowd of west Texans at the Fort Chadbourne Museum in Bronte. For those of you who have never been to Fort Chadbourne, it is an old cavalry outpost and was an actual military base from 1852 until the mid to late 1870’s. Many of the actual building have been restored and the museum was FANTASTIC! If you are ever in the area, please go by and see Fort Chadbourne, cause it will be worth the visit. The fundraiser seemed to be a success and the audience was very kind and gracious in their affection for my show. I know I will always enjoy playing the roll of General Sam and seeing Texans excited about their heritage! A special thank you to Garland Richards and his wife Lana, and to Ann Pate for inviting me to perform at this historical location. What great hospitality and such a great group of people. I know Fort Chadbourne is a little off the beaten path, but it is SUPER COOL and worth the visit!
Now it is time to get ready for the Granbury Live Follies show this weekend! If you haven’t got tickets, you better get on the stick cause this rock and roll/Motown show will be something to see and hear!
