 The Brothers Grimm “go Broadway” as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a cockeyed fairy tale in Into The Woods JR., an adaptation of one of Sondheim’s most popular works designed especially for young performers.

All of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood,
Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch—meet and interact in this
whimsical original story. The musical centers on a baker and his wife
who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the king’s
festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker
and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch’s
curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up
changed forever.

With unforgettable roles, little dancing, and no chorus, Into The Woods JR.
showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The
sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier – though still
challenging –for young performers. Into The Woods JR. is a funny and
engaging way to get young people to think about the stories with which
they’ve grown up and the ethical issues raised therein.

July 23, 2015 – August 2, 2015
The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy’s meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when ‘That’ll Be the Day‘ hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on “The Day the Music Died“.

The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including ‘That’ll Be the Day‘, ‘Peggy Sue‘, ‘Everyday‘, ‘Oh Boy‘, ‘Not Fade Away‘, ‘Rave On‘ and ‘Raining in My Heart‘, plus Ritchie Valens’ ‘La Bamba‘ and the Big Bopper’s ‘Chantilly Lace‘.

The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical
career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock
& roll, continues to live on in Buddy.

Seen by over 22 million people around the world, Buddy will have you on your feet and “send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high” (The Boston Globe)

 Two Great and wonderful Restaurants in Tyler!!


There is a really great patio in Tyler-it is at a grocery store (of all places) called
BY BROOKSHIRES. This is a wonderful place to go for fireworks viewing!!
They have live music on Friday and Saturday, too. Great food-beer and
wine. Then at dark thirty the neighborhood just to the northeast does
their fireworks display. It is perfect.

The next place we want to feature this time is 

A Destination Restaurant Come
to Lago del Pino to experience all that makes Tyler’s destination
restaurant an oasis in the countryside. From its spectacular private
lake views and its distinctive fountain show, to its eclectic live
music, relaxed dining, and fabulous wine list, you’ll quickly recognize
all that makes dining at Lago del Pino more than just a memorable meal.
Our chef

prepares a variety of traditional cuisine including fine
steaks, pasta, one-of-a-kind burgers, gluten free options, and fresh
seasonal vegetables and salads. 

They also have live music on the weekend and a fabulous patio. My bet is they will have fireworks over the lake on the 4th, although I can’t find any info on this!

Canton First Monday is July 2-5 and in August July 30-August 2.
Hope this may help with your shopping plans-If you don’t want to
brave the Summer heat stay in Tyler and visit the best antique mall in Texas.

302 East Locust St, Tyler Tx 75702   http://www.oldcitytyler.com/index.html

That place we remember when the
present doesn’t quite measure up to our expectations. Enjoy the
nostalgia of days gone by with a pleasant visit to Ye Olde City Antique
Mall where you can find those items that bring back precious memories.
     There has been an antique mall and/or flea market at the current
location of Ye Olde City for decades.  Over the years, the property
languished and lost much of its former charm.  In April 2007, the Powell
brothers, Bert and Robert, acquired the property from the Swann
Estate.  A lot of time and effort has gone in to restoring the property
to its former self and to creating an atmosphere of “old world charm”.    Our Dealers add a nice warmth
and friendliness to make your shopping experience a pleasant one.  We
hope you enjoy the way that the mall flows.  New surprises lurk around
every corner.  Hopefully, you will find whatever you want!
That’s it for now –  come on and spend a night or two, or more!! at the Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast 
You can rest relax and follow our  motto::



One minute you are relaxing, the next you are playing, then you meet a new friend!
Return to your carefree days when your biggest worries were: When can we
go out to play? When do we go to bed? What’s for breakfast? 

 Bye till next time!!
