January 13 – 15….Moonlight Broadway Presents: “Tarzan” – The 2016-17 Moonlight Broadway season is proud to present the high-flying musical, TARZAN® swinging onto the stage of the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre. TARZAN® is based on the Disney film and features all of the popular Phil Collins songs from it, as well as many new ones written by Collins for the stage version. Adapted from the 1914 story “Tarzan of the Apes” by Edgar Rice Burroughs, this Moonlight Broadway production is a classic-with-a-twist. TARZAN tells the story of a young human boy (Tarzan) raised in the jungle by a tribe of gorillas after his parents are killed. Never quite fitting in with the tribe, Tarzan is very intrigued by the similarities he discovers between himself and a young naturalist (Jane) he rescues in the jungle. Soon, Tarzan’s loyalties to his gorilla family and the attraction he feels for Jane are tested as he realizes he must choose between the life he has known and a future with Jane. For tickets call Select – A – Seat at 806-770-2000. For additional information see: LubbockMoonlightMusicals.org/Upcoming-Shows/. Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre, 1501 Mac Davis Ln.

January 14….Saturday Lectures at LHUCA: The Life and Art of Renoir with Christian Conrad - Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919): An artist closely associated with the Impressionists, Pierre-Auguste Renoir was one of the founding members of this movement. Born into poverty Renoir would become a household name due to his beautiful and vibrant depictions of everyday life. Renoir’s work can also be seen as the transition from the accessible works of such artists as Peter Paul Rubens and Eduard Manet into a more contemporary vision. Join us as we examine Renoir’s art in addition to his close relationships with many of the other important artists of his time. Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation. This event is free to the public. Join us for coffee and donuts! LHUCA, 511 Avenue K; 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

January 14....Family Film Classic: "The Wizard of Oz"
- Beloved by generation of kids and adults alike, this classic is a 1939 American musical comedy-drama fantasy film produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and the most well-known and commercially successful adaptation based on the 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. The film stars Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale. The co-stars are Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Frank Morgan, Billie Burke, and Margaret Hamilton, with Charley Grapewin, Pat Walshe andClara Blandick, Terry the dog (billed as Toto), and the Singer Midgets as the Munchkins. Notable for its use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling, musical score, and unusual characters, over the years, it has become an icon of American popular culture. It was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, but lost to Gone with the Wind. It did win in two other categories, including Best Original Song for "Over the Rainbow" and Best Original Score by Herbert Stothart. The Wizard of Oz is often ranked on best-movie lists in critics' and public polls. It is the source of many quotes referenced in modern popular culture. It was directed primarily by Victor Fleming (who left production to take over direction on the troubled "Gone with the Wind" production). Noel Langley, Florence Ryerson and Edgar Allan Woolf received credit for the screenplay, but uncredited contributions were made by others. The songs were written by Edgar "Yip" Harburg (lyrics) and Harold Arlen (music). Purchase regular price tickets online at cactustheater.com or see special offer below:
