The culmination of WaterTower Theatre's two week Summer Performing Arts Conservatory is a kid-size production of Willy Wonka. The play is this weekend and I urge you to get your sweets on and head over to the theater at 15650 Addison Road, Addison, Texas. The play highlights the skills and techniques the campers acquired in the summer program. I just came from the dress rehearsal and I think there are some future stars in the cast! The summer class is for 6-18 year-olds and the kids learn acting, singing and dancing. Additionally, the summer camp gets into audition technique, voice, and art. Older participants get to explore techniques in scene study, play writing, Shakespeare, improvisation, stage make-up, musical theater, dance, costume design and film. The kids are taught in a unique...

Two bus loads of Addison, Texas Pacesetters (50+ years of age) spent a delightful evening at the Dallas Arboretum on May 29, 2012. We were there to see the Chihuly exhibit and hear Dan Whyms perform a tribute to Johnny Cash. The Dallas Arboretum is located at 8525 Garland Road in Dallas and the exhibit runs through November 5th. Individual tickets are $10 (seniors) and $12 (members) to $22 (non-members) and parking is free. On Tuesday and Thursday evenings, there are concerts on the hill inside the Arboretum. In my opinion, this is the best time to go. The gates open at 6:00 pm and the concert starts at 7:30 (7:00 in the fall). You'll have time to wander the grounds and see the 14 fantastic glass sculpture installations that Chihuly made specifically for the Dallas Arboretum, get back t...

First it was a French play. Then it was made into a movie with Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis. Now it's back on stage at Addison's WaterTower Theatre in Addison, Texas. Boeing Boeing is the tale of an enterprising young architect who juggles multiple fiancées in Paris, France in 1968 in this high comedy. Bernard, played by Ashley Wood, has his hands full trying to keep his three stewardesses from finding out about each other. He is helped by his friend Robert (Andy Baldwin). Lula Ward plays Bertha, the put-upon housekeeper caught in the middle of Bernard's schemes. The stews are played by Emily Scott Banks (Gabriella), Sherry Hopkins (Gloria), and Morgan McClure (Gretchen). All is well until the advent of high speed jet airliners allowing the flight attendants more time with their intended...

 Dine Out At The Food Trucks in Addison's Vitruvian Park! Grab a blanket or lawn chair, pack your frisbee or soccer ball, put your wallet in your pocket, bring your appetite and head over to Vitruvian Park in Addison. Every Thursday night this May, Vitruvian Park's bridge is the place to be. There are food trucks selling a variety of delicious meals from 5:00 pm until they sell out. There was a good size crowd this evening. Several employees of the Town of Addison were dining out and I saw a few Addison real estate agents there, too. Tom Lamberth, the visionary behind the Vitruvian Park concept was there with his wife, Lorri.  And the event is definitely pet-friendly.                                                                                                                  Tom & L...

Think YOUR Family is Dysfunctional? Watch This One at Addison's WaterTower Theatre. The Westons have a difficult time in August: Osage County, now on stage at Addison's WaterTower Theatre. Dysfunction and abuse abound in this dark comedy by Tracy Letts. The acting is superb. Pam Dougherty as Violet Weston, the pill popping matriarch of the family, and Sherry Jo Ward as the eldest daughter, are supported by a fabulous cast so large that the Playbill contains a family tree. Without giving too much away, the production begins with Beverly Weston, the patriarch, played by Cliff Stephens, hiring a Native American woman, played by Sasha Truman-McGonnell, to be their housekeeper. You will be talking about this play long after the final curtain comes down. Be advised: there is strong language a...
