February 19….Cactus Theater presents: Max Stalling -
Texas based songwriter, Max Stalling, has a style that is modern with a vintage feel. With Tom Lewis on drums and percussion, Bryce Clarke on guitar, and Jason Steinsultz swapping between upright and electric bass, Stalling creates a dynamic live show that's smart, charming and as listenable as it is danceable. Stalling and troupe are equally at home on a huge concert stage in front of thousands or playing an acoustic set for a hundred. Despite playing the same circuit as many household names in Texas country, grouping Stalling with them would be premature. His unique voice and amusingly clever song lyrics pull him in a different direction. Don't miss this opportunity to see Max Stalling live on the Cactus stage!! Please contact the box office at 806-762-3233 to reserve your tickets. Reserved seating $15. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Avenue; 7:30 p.m.

- John Cariani’s Almost, Maine is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism...This is a beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy) and passing references to characters from other vignettes, which slyly tell us more about them. Mr. Cariani, describes the play’s subject as ‘falling in and out of love.’ It is just as much about pain. Produced over 2,000 times by amateur and professional companies. Written by John Cariani. Directed By Leah Tyson. Rated PG-13. Ticket Prices: Adults: $20, Students/Seniors $15. To reserve tickets visit http://lubbockcommunitytheatre.org/ or call (806) 749-2416.
