(Repeats May 23, 24, 30, 31)…."The Boys Next Door" - The place is a communal residence in a New England city, where four mentally handicapped men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly "burned out" social worker. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where "little things" sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy. We are reminded that the handicapped, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time that they, like their more fortunate brothers, are allotted on this earth. Cost: $12 - $15. For tickets call 806-792-0501 or visit Cats Playhouse. 2257 34th Street; 7:30 p.m.

Told in the styles of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim, Herry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Kander & Ebb. A witty and charming valentine to musical theatre!

May 17….Silent Wings Museum Book Signing - The Silent Wings Museum is pleased to announce the arrival of the new book, Images of Aviation: South Plains Army Airfield by published author Donald R. Abbe, PhD. South Plains Army Airfield in Lubbock, Texas, was a major training base for U.S. Army Air Force’s glider pilots during World War II. Approximately 80 percent of the roughly 6,000 pilots trained to fly the combat cargo glider received their advanced training and were awarded their “G” wings at SPAAF, as it was known. The base was conceived, built, used, and then closed in a short five-year period during World War II. Today, little remains to remind one of the feverish and important military training programs that once took place on the flat, featureless South Plains of Texas. The Images of Aviation series celebrates the history of flight – from the early experimental, lighter-than-air craft to modern commercial, military and private air machines. Donald R. Abbe, PhD, serves as the curator at the Silent Wings Museum. He has co-authored several books on the history of Lubbock and the South Plains of Texas. Abbe will be signing his book, Images of Aviation: South Plains Army Airfield and this event will be FREE and open to the public. Proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit the Silent Wings Museum. Silent Wings Museum, 6202 Interstate 27 Frontage; 3 p.m.
