“In the early 1970s, noted Texas historian Joe Frantz offered Bill Wittliff a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—to visit a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros still worked cattle in traditional ways. Wittliff photographed the vaqueros as they went about daily chores that had changed little since the first Mexican cow herders learned to work cattle from a horse’s back. Wittliff captured a way of life that now exists only in memory and in the photographs included in this exhibition.”

“Fallen Angel” presented by Lone Star Murder Mysteries @ Texas Star Dinner Theater
May 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Lone Star Murder Mysteries and the Texas Star Dinner Theater welcome you to their exciting new murder-mystery production, “Fallen Angel.”

Performances on Fridays and Saturdays from January 20 – November 11, 2017.

Doors open at 7pm
Dinner served at 7:30pm
Show starts at 8pm


Rebecca Angel has been murdered!  Apparently our “angel” had fallen on hard times and intended to climb back up ~ any way she could.  She would stop at nothing:  committing bank robbery, blackmail, even double-parking her horse.  It also seems her little black diary makes for better copy than the National Enquirer ~ and everybody’s secrets are out!

Could Esperanza have a need for revenge or did she just not want the competition in a bad economy?  Did Hyrum Q. Justice “see” something about Rebecca that made him snap?  Could the Reverend Brimstone’s “private healings” have gone too far?  Or perhaps Helen and her “friend” finally got away with murder?  Be prepared to have some knee slappin’ fun as you come along for one of the wildest Wild West rides of your life!


Don’t miss this interactive comedy murder mystery dinner experience. Dinner is catered by Chill and completes the perfect evening.

Tickets $59.95 + tax includes dinner and the show (tip not included).

Purchase tickets here. 

“Chitty, Chitty, Bang Bang” @ OhLook Performing Arts Center
May 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The Oh Look Performing Arts Center welcomes you to a production of Chitty, Chitty, Bang Bang.

Performance Dates: 
May 19 – 28

Music and Lyrics by Richard and Robert Sherman
Directed by: Matt Mitchell

“Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find “Truly Scrumptious.”
An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts sets about restoring an old race car from a scrap heap with the help of his children, Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car has magical properties, including the ability to float and take flight. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.”
