‘ROMANCING THE WEST’: Thursday, August 15
The colorful history of the American West — and Texas — comes to life in this nationally acclaimed musical documentary “Romancing the West,” a celebration of the lives, hopes and dreams of the diverse peoples who were part of the great Westward Expansion period.
Starring singer-songwriter Christina Lynn Martin and noted Cowboy balladeer and balladeer Butch Martin, the must-see show gives the audience a chance to experience and re-live this storied nineteenth-century era through song — “How the West Was Sung,” is how Christina Martin explains it.
The traveling show has been a hit in dozens of other cities where it has played, and promises to be a full-family draw for its exclusive Austin engagement in two performances —a 4 p.m.matinee and a 7 p.m. command performance — in our historic Wessels Hall. What could be better than to experience this premier history show in an historic dance hall?
Space is limited, so get your tickets early for this special opportunity to come live, breathe and hear the history of the Old West — in song.
As an extra treat for show-goers, Austin light-show artist Tracy Brown will be on site to “paint” our Sprinkle Corner buildings in light designs. This will be a special presentation that you’ll be talking about for weeks to come.
Matinee tickets are $20 for adults, and $15 for seniors and students. Evening performance tickets are $25 for adults, and $20 for seniors and students. Group rates are available upon request. Complimentary refreshments will be served at both shows.
