Special "International Edition"

The Lubbock Fun Report comes to you this week from downtown Hong Kong!

Greetings from Steph and Shane....standing along the bustling "Golden Mile" shopping district in Hong Kong. We thought we'd see how they have fun on the other side of the planet.


March 11….Prairie Winds Chorus Concert - This chapter of Sweet Adelines International, will present a free performance. Crossfire quartet (Connie Light, Brenda Thomas, Lisa Hilton and Kendra Harrelson) will also perform. A raffle drawing will be held at that performance to give away an “Entertainment Package” valued at $850.

March 12….New Neighbors Meeting - The March New Neighbors Meeting will be filled with information and entertainment for women.

March 12-13; (repeats March 19-20; 26-27…."Always...Patsy Cline" - More than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963, the show is based on a true story about Cline’s (Terri Caldwell) friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger (Jane Prince Jones), who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. The musical play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy' unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Waking After Midnight…27 songs in all. The show’s title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS... Patsy Cline.” Featuring Terri Caldwell and Jane Prince Jones. Tickets: $25. . Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Avenue; 7:30 p.m.


March 12, 13, 14 (repeats March 19-21)….“The Complete History Of America (Abridged)” - "During the manic, ninety-minute program...[they] mine dozens of landmark events and trends for comic gold. Not only do they know how to give American history an irreverent boost, they actually turn it into something accessible and alive." - Pamela Sommers, The Washington Post. The Complete History of America interprets the past as a breathlessly paced sequence of silly vaudeville sketches, word-association games, puns and crude parodies of movie and television genres. Nothing is sacred, and many of the facts have been skewed to suggest the paranoid ravings of a particularly loony tabloid...." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times. "In a series of sketches that move at breakneck speed, the Reduced Shakespeare Company scampers through American history ...this history of America should be a required course." - Terry Byrne, The Boston Herald. Written by Adam Long, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor and directed by Kevin Ten Eyck . Rating: Comedy PG-13. Lubbock Community Theatre (formerly Boston Avenue Playhouse), 4232 Boston Avenue; Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m.; Sunday 2 p.m.
