Dancescape Tues­day Novem­ber 24, 2015 7pm LSC-Mont­gomery Main­stage The­atre

The Lone Star Col­lege-Mont­gomery dance depart­ment will present its fall dance con­cert, Dancescape, on Tues­day, Novem­ber 24, at 7 p.m., in the Main­stage The­atre in the col­lege’s Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (build­ing D). Ad­mis­sion is $10 for gen­eral ad­mis­sion, $7 for se­niors and $5 for stu­dents, fac­ulty, and staff. Dancescape is the cul­mi­na­tion of work done by stu­dents en­rolled in the dance per­for­mance class. This class, in which stu­dents en­roll for the op­por­tu­nity to per­form in a for­mal dance con­cert, teaches the stu­dents chore­og­ra­phy, and then al­lows for re­hears­ing and re­fin­ing it for the stage. Fac­ulty, guest artists and stu­dents de­velop chore­og­ra­phy, but stu­dents learn all of the other as­pects of the cre­ative and pro­duc­tion process by help­ing with public­ity, cos­tum­ing, light­ing de­sign and more. “Dancescape is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to wel­come the com­mu­nity to the cam­pus to see what tal­ent ex­ists here,” said Niri­der. “I feel the dance pro­gram is a hid­den jewel that many aren’t aware of. There is so much tal­ent at our col­lege, wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered.”

The­atre Un­der The Stars (TUTS) presents A Christ­mas Story The Mu­si­cal De­cem­ber 8 - 20, 2015 The Hobby Cen­ter for Per­form­ing Arts Sarofim Hall

(800 Bagby St., Hous­ton, TX, 77002)

Pre­pare your­self for a red-blooded, twofisted, all-Amer­i­can Christ­mas in the hol­i­day show her­alded by the As­so­ci­ated Press as “a charm­ing tri­umph in­fused with ut­ter joy.” In this clever mu­si­cal adap­ta­tion of the 1983 film com­edy, we fol­low the child­hood dreams and schemes of lit­tle Ral­phie, whose heart is set on get­ting one thing and one thing only for Christ­mas – the of­fi­cial Red Ry­der, car­bine ac­tion, two-hun­dred shot range model air ri­fle. Along the way, we dis­cover the stuff of pink night­mares (think bunny suit), the power of fish­net-clad lamps (care­ful, it’s fra-GEE-lay), and the win­try haz­ards of stick­ing a warm tongue to a cold metal pole. With its time­less scenes, quirky in­no­cence and nos­tal­gic warmth, this mu­si­cal trip down mem­ory lane will leave the whole fam­ily bright-eyed and buoy­ant. It’s far and away the most fun you’ll have this hol­i­day sea­son!

TUTS’ pro­duc­tion of A Christ­mas Story The Mu­si­cal is made pos­si­ble by the gen­eros­ity of Bal­lard Ex­plo­ration Com­pany, Inc.

TUTS’ 2015/16 sea­son is gen­er­ously spon­sored by CHI St. Luke’s Health. For all shows, air trans­porta­tion is pro­vided by United Air­lines, the of­fi­cial air­line of TUTS. Me­dia spon­sors in­clude ABC-13 and Hous­ton Chron­i­cle. Sea­son sup­port is funded in part by grants from the City of Hous­ton through the Theater Dis­trict As­so­ci­a­tion, the Na­tional En­dow­ment for the Arts, and the Texas Com­mis­sion on the Arts.

Tick­ets start at $30. Check TUTS On­line at www.tuts.com, or phone them at 713.558.TUTS
