August 21….Cactus Theater Presents Max Stalling - Texas based songwriter, Max Stalling, has a style that is modern with a vintage feel. With Jeff Howe on drums and percussion, Clay Willis 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 tickets. Reserved seating. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Avenue; 8 p.m.


August 21-22….Moonlight Musicals ”Oklahoma" - Come out to the Moonlight Musicals Amphitheatre (previously the Wells Fargo Amphitheatre) in the beautiful outdoor setting of Lubbock’s Mackenzie Park this August as Lubbock Moonlight Musicals presents their 10th anniversary production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” Music by Richard Rodgers. Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Making use of Texas Tech and local talent, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals always strives to create high quality, family-friendly entertainment that all ages may enjoy. “Oklahoma!” is a musical masterpiece not to be missed! Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “OKLAHOMA!” is based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs. Original Dances by Agnes de Mille. Picnic suppers welcome, though our newly expanded concession building will be open immediately prior to and during the shows. Tickets are now available through Select-A-Seat by calling 806.770.2000, online at, at all Select-A-Seat locations, and at the Moonlight Musicals Amphitheatre box office immediately prior to shows. Moonlight Musicals Amphitheatre, 413 East Broadway; Gates open at 7 p.m.; show begins at 8 p.m.

August 22….“The Art of Edgar Sotelo” Exhibit and Reception - A one-man exhibit featuring 22 oil paintings by Western artist Edgar Sotelo will open Saturday, August 22, with a meet-the-artist reception. Sotelo is a fourth generation artist who was born in Durango, Mexico, and came to the United States to attend Texas Tech University. He graduated in 1988 with a degree in food technology from the Department of Animal and Food Sciences. As a student, Sotelo paid some of his college expenses with the proceeds he earned from selling pencil sketches. After years of working in corporate America, Sotelo now devotes full-time to his art career. He lives with his wife and three daughters on a ranch near Sulphur Springs and raises American Quarter Horses. Last year the American Quarter Horse Association named Sotelo as signature artist for its 2014 America’s Horse in Art Show and Sale. In addition, he has been the featured artist at such premiere events as “Trappings of Texas” at the Museum of the Big Bend at Sul Ross University and the 2015 National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Convention. A largely self-taught artist, Sotelo paints vibrant, accurate depictions of ranch scenes, charreadas (Mexican rodeos) and portraits. He realistically portrays the life of pioneers, Native Americans and the working cowboys and charros of the American West. Because Sotelo believes in experiencing what he paints, he attends charreadas in Texas and visits Texas ranches that allow him to ride alongside the ranch hands to observe, record and preserve the cowboy/charro way of life. Sotelo’s paintings can be found throughout the country, including in the atrium of the Animal and Food Sciences Building at Texas Tech. His paintings have garnered national attention through award-winning placings at shows in Arizona, Texas and California. In addition, his work has been featured on the covers of such publications as American Horse magazine. The Sotelo exhibit will be on display through November 21. at the National Ranching Heritage Center. Admission is free. For additional information, contact Dr. Scott White at or 806.742.0498. Mary Belle Macy Gallery of the National Ranching Heritage Center, 3121 Fourth St;. 4:30 to 7 p.m.
