Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast

Summer is here-arriving on June 20th this year. Bet you thought it was already here!! It has been warm, but we have had some nice rainfall so let’s all pray for more throughout the season. What is going on in the area the next few weeks? Well =-quite a bit. All the more reason to make your reservation now at The Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast. THE BEST PLACE to stay in Tyler. We will post thru the the 15th of July.

We are going to feature a few things from Kilgore. The  town is about 30 minutes East of Tyler. The Rosevine Inn B&B is the best place to stay for events in Kilgore!!  ( In my opinion )

“THE TEST” Tuskegee Project

•Sunday, June 3rd, 2012 @ 1:00pm
•Sunday, July 29th, 2012 @ 1:00pm – 5:00pm

“THE TEST” is an 8 week exhibition about the first African-American aviators in the U.S. Military in combat in World War Two.
The aviators were part of an effort by the War Department to determine if African-Americans had the capabilities to be effective combat aviators. The outcome of this test would impact the future opportunities of African-Americans in and outside of the military. The exhibition sets the stage for the telling of the story by providing information on racial relations in America before World War Two and African-American involvement in early aviation.
Photographs, carefully researched depiction of events, models, maps and graphics, are used to present and to inform visitors about the men, the aircraft they flew and flew against, and the operations in which they participated. A section of the exhibition is dedicated to those that served with the 99TH FS and the 332ND FG or were involved with the “Tuskegee Project”.

When new Sheriff Martin Brody discovers the remains of a shark attack victim, his first inclination is to close the beaches to swimmers. This doesn’t sit well with Mayor Larry Vaughn and several of the local businessmen. Brody backs down to his regret, and that weekend a young boy is killed by the predator. The dead boy’s mother puts out a bounty on the shark and Amity is soon swamped with amateur hunters and fisherman hoping to cash in on the reward. A local fisherman with much experience hunting sharks, Quint, offers to hunt down the creature for a hefty fee. Soon Quint, Brody and Matt Hooper from the Oceanographic Institute are at sea hunting the Great White shark. As Brody succinctly surmises after their first encounter with the creature, they’re going to need a bigger boat.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
By William Shakespeare
June 28; July 5*, 7*, 12, 14, 20*, 22*, 27, 29
Last seen at TSF in 1998, “Merry Wives” is a comic romp featuring one of Shakespeare’s most beloved characters, Sir John Falstaff, who gets himself into a heap of trouble while trying to court two women at the same time.
The Liar
By David Ives, adapted from a comedy by Pierre Corneille
June 29; July 5, 7, 13*, 15*, 20, 22, 26*, 28*
The non-Shakespeare play is a new adaptation by David Ives of a 17th century farce by French playwright Pierre Corneille, a contemporary of Molière. The Liar is about a swaggering young swain whom seems incapable of telling the truth. Mistaken identities, misunderstandings, and hilarious complications ensue.

Measure for Measure
By William Shakespeare
June 30; July 6*, 8*, 13, 15, 19*, 21*, 26, 28
Produced only once before by TSF in 1993, Measure for Measure is an arresting and emotional story about the lust for power and the power of lust – true Shakespearean melodrama with strong religious and moral overtones.
Blood Brothers
By Willy Russell
July 1, 6, 8, 12*, 14*, 19, 21, 27*, 29*
The longest running musical in the history of London’s West End, Blood Brothers has become a phenomenon of the British theatre. It is about twin brothers born to a woman who, because she is poor and the mother of several children, is persuaded to give one of them to a wealthy family. At the age of eight, the twins meet by chance and, without knowing they are related, become best friends in spite of their parent’s efforts to keep them apart. The play follows their parallel but contrasting lives all the way to the inevitable and fateful end.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
July 10*, 10, 11*, 17*, 17, 18*, 24*, 24, 25*
Three overzealous, energetic actors attempt to perform all thirty-seven of Shakespeare’s plays in ninety-seven minutes, and the result is a fast-paced, witty and physical evening of laughter. TSF produced “Cmplt Wrks” once before, in 1998. This is a special fundraising event for the Festival.
Quest for the Lost Chalice
by Jason Richards
July 18, 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 at 10:00 AM
