FOOTLOOSE explodes onto the stage with classic 80s anthems including Holding Out For A Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear It For The Boy, and of course the title track, Footloose.
Life in small-town Bomont is peaceful until City boy, Ren, arrives. Breaking every taboo, Ren brings dance back to the heart of a town held back by the memory of a tragedy.

Balcony seating is $15
VIP Boxes are $125 and seat 4 people
July 25th @8PM
For fifteen years Reckless Kelly has been doing things their way, straddling the fence between country and rock as if they built it themselves. Throughout the years their old school approach to recording has always adhered to one main objective: make each record better than the last. That’s country rock. That’s old school. That’s Reckless Kelly.Opening for Reckless Kelly is our own Taylor Heard!

Taylor Heard is an award-winning singer/songwriter from a small town in East Texas. She recently won the prestigious John Ritter Showcase in Carthage, Texas. This competition earned her the title “Texas Country Music Hall of Fame Representative for 2013″. Taylor also won the People’s Choice Award at the showcase which meant so much coming from the audience of such a respectable event. ” My music is for every individual because it has a soul,” Taylor says. “I want the audience to feel pain when I sing about heartbreak, laugh out loud when it’s about loving life , and get up and dance when they hear it because they just can’t help it! ”

The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a human-sized rabbit named Harvey that only he sees (and a few privileged others on occasion). After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places.

Paranoid Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper of Burpelson Air Force Base, he believing that fluoridation of the American water supply is a Soviet plot to poison the U.S. populace, is able to deploy through a back door mechanism a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union without the knowledge of his superiors, including the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Buck Turgidson, and President Merkin Muffley. Only Ripper knows the code to recall the B-52 bombers and he has shut down communication in and out of Burpelson as a measure to protect this attack. Ripper’s executive officer, RAF Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (on exchange from Britain), who is being held at Burpelson by Ripper, believes he knows the recall codes if he can only get a message to the outside world. Meanwhile at the Pentagon War Room, key persons including Muffley, Turgidson and nuclear scientist and adviser, a former Nazi named Dr. Strangelove, are discussing measures to stop the attack or mitigate its blow-up
