April 26-27
(Repeats May 3-4)….CATS Theatre: "Those Unforgettable Black Rims" - Winner of the 2012 Cordell Green Festival, held once every two years and is a local play writing festival, in which 6 plays were submitted. Kyle Bullock's play was selected to be a part of the 2013 Children and Adults Theatrical Studio season by a panel of judges. This play spans multiple generations of the Archer family and over 80 years. Featuring two, interwoven story lines set in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico, the play follows the beautiful life and death of Virginia Archer. As her family picks up the pieces after her death, Virginia’s story is told in flashbacks and reveals how the love of her life changed everything. This comedy is a family-friendly play that is sure to keep audiences smiling! Director Robyn Huizinga describes the show as “one about family, not just a particular family from Eastern New Mexico, but a universal family that loves, learns, lives, and deals with death just like any family must. My goal and hope is that each member of the audience will see something of their own family represented in this humorous and moving piece of theater.” There will also be opportunities for Q&A with the cast, director, and playwright...and a chance for audience members to share their favorite thoughts and memories about their own families. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students/seniors. Call 806-792-0501 for reservations. Children and Adults Theatrical Studios, 2275 34th Street; 7:30 p.m.
